First-of-its-kind IoT tracker delivers ultra-long battery life on CBRS private networks
PARIS, France – January 3, 2021 – Sequans Communications S.A. (NYSE: SQNS) announced that its Cassiopeia CB410L CBRS module is providing the cellular connectivity for a new, ultra-efficient IoT tracker introduced by Monogoto, a cloud-based global cellular connectivity provider. The new CBRS tracker can operate for a full year on standard AA batteries, made possible by the ultra-low power consumption capabilities of Sequans technology. The new CBRSense™ asset tracker, on display this week at CES, was designed and built by SODAQ, a designer and manufacturer of low power sensing and tracking IoT devices.
“Sequans’ CBRS module is an ideal connectivity solution for the new CBRSense IoT Tracker, because it delivers the lowest power consumption in the industry,” said Itamar Kunik, Monogoto CEO. “We are happy to welcome the CBRSense into our network and pleased to have such a successful collaboration with both Sequans and SODAQ to bring to market the first ever battery-operated multi-purpose, IoT sensor/tracker for LTE private networks. Sequans’ new low power capability enables CBRS network users to deploy massive IoT type applications on CBRS, thereby unblocking a flood of new low power application possibilities.”
“We saw the need for low power solutions that would enable CBRS use cases to expand beyond campus, industrial, agricultural, and fleet management applications to include more power-aware applications,” said Bertrand Debray, Sequans EVP. “In response, we adapted our Cassiopeia CB410L and CB610L modules to support new low power requirements, and Monogoto’s new CBRSense tracker is the first tracker available that can support low power apps such as smart meters, asset trackers, and smart building sensors. We are very pleased to have collaborated with Monogoto and SODAQ to deliver this valuable solution for the CBRS ecosystem.”
The CBRSense asset tracker will be on display during CES 2022, January 5-8, in Monogoto’s booth, number 10337, and in Sequans’ meeting room at the Venetian in the Tech West area of CES. Visitors will be able to view a live demo of the CBRSense trackers reporting their locations from the CES show floor. Email email@example.com for more information or to request a meeting.
