Sequans at CES 2020, January 7-10

Leader in 5G/4G Chips and Modules for Broadband, Critical, and Massive IoT

Here Comes 2020!

5G IoT will be a big topic of conversation at CES, and we will be meeting with customers, partners, and potential customers at CES to discuss it. What does 5G mean for IoT? How will we transition from 4G to 5G? What are the most important considerations in 4G and 5G IoT chip development? Most importantly, how do IoT device makers benefit now and in the future from advances in chip technology? We will be in the same location we’ve been for the last several years in our meeting room at the Venetian/Sands Expo, Toscana 3603. On the main route to the Sands Expo from the Venetian, take the escalator up one level. Please contact us at if you’d like to schedule a meeting.

New IoT Trackers Powered by Sequans’ Monarch on Display at CES

Pebblebee Found IoT Tracker Now Available

We will have on display the Pebblebee Found real-time IoT Tracker that was just made its public debut on December 10. Pebblebee Found is an amazing new tracker that has unsurpassed battery life because it tracks only when needed. It is rechargeable and has a 12-month battery life. In addition to our meeting room, you’ll be able to see the Pebblebee Found in action at CES — look for Pebblebee folks on the show floor keeping track of each other with the new Pebblebee Found!

“We chose Sequans’ Monarch technology to connect Pebblebee Found because it delivers ultra-low power consumption and all necessary features, including small size and global deployment capability, to meet our requirements for Pebblebee Found. Furthermore, Monarch is the most mature LTE-M chip solution in the industry with unsurpassed reliability.”

— Daniel Daoura, Pebblebee CEO

Inseego’s IoT tracker for Telstra now launched and available in Australia

You’ll also see a new tracker from Inseego, a pioneer in 5G and IoT device-to-cloud solutions, who has adopted Sequans Monarch GM01Q LTE-M module to provide the LTE connectivity for its new consumer IoT tracker, the Telstra Locator Cat M1 Tag, recently launched on the network of Telstra, Australia’s largest mobile operator. This new, advanced tracker of very small size features the latest in IoT functionality.

“Our aim was to deliver an advanced, reliable LTE IoT tracker and Sequans’ Monarch met our requirements for industry-leading low power consumption, small size, and global deployment capability.”

— Inseego EVP of IoT & Mobile Solutions Ashish Sharma

And Another One to be Announced at CES

Watch for the announcement coming January 7 at CES. IoT trackers powered by Sequans’ Monarch has become a recurring theme! That’s because Monarch’s global capability, small size, and ultra-low power consumption provide exactly what is needed.

Live Demos

CES Partner Activity Featuring Sequans and Monarch

Itron Live Demo, featuring Sequans’ Monarch NB01Q Module
Itron Idea Labs, an organization within Itron that is dedicated to accelerating innovation, is demonstrating NB IoT technology as it applies to early prototype work for utility and smart city applications. The group’s demonstration at CES2020 includes Sequans’ NB01Q module that provides the NB IoT communications for smart street lighting. Itron has a meeting suite at the Venetian, floor 35, room 307. Contact to schedule a meeting.

Avnet Live Demo, featuring Sequans’ Monarch
Tech West, Sands Expo, Venetian G
See Sequans’ Monarch LTE-M technology in action on the Tech West show floor in the booth of Avnet. You’ll see a model of a smart city where Avnet’s Ultra96 and Xilinx’s Zynq Ultrascale+ will monitor “traffic” simulated by slot race cars running on a track. Using edge-based AI on the Ultra96, image processing algorithms will detect and analyze the passing cars, sending meta data via a Sequans’ Monarch-enabled LTE Cat-M cellular link to Avnet’s IoTConnect cloud platform for remote monitoring. Don’t miss it!

Sequans and Invoxia
Invoxia, Sands Expo, Stand 45131
Sequans is a partner of Invoxia and will be present in Invoxia’s booth at The Sands Expo, stand 45131. Invoxia develops and commercializes a range of consumer and professional trackers that embed AI (deep neural network), allowing for the recognition of behaviors from pet activity to predictive maintenance. Please come visit us at Invoxia’s location to find out more about our collaboration and exciting news for CES.

Skyworks Solutions
Tech West, Sands Expo, MR46237 (meetings by appointment only)
At CES, Skyworks Solutions will be promoting their Massive IoT solutions, which include the joint solution of Sequans and Skyworks, called Monarch SiP by Sequans and SKY66430-11 by Skyworks. Monarch SiP combines the LTE-M/NB-IoT chip of Sequans with the universal radio front-end module of Skyworks Solutions, resulting in an all-in-one LTE connectivity solution with maximum performance and power efficiency in the world’s most compact package. New IoT devices based on Monarch SIP, including Daatrics’ Neebo baby wearable, GeoTraq’s IoT module, and the Pebblebee Found IoT tracker will be on display and/or live demoed at our location. Skyworks also will be demonstrating the Pebblebee tracker in their meeting room.
