Sequans at Mobile World Congress 2016
February 21, 2016

We unveiled the world’s first Cat M1/NB1 narrowband LTE chip, Monarch and are showing it off at MWC. It is the world’s most highly optimized LTE for IoT chip, integrating baseband, RF, memory, and power management in a single chip, and featuring exceptional low power capabilities and programmable on-chip RF filtering.

We’ve also announced two significant LTE for IoT partnerships: 1) a partnership with Gemalto to build modules based on our new Cat M1/NB1 Monarch platform, and 2) a partnership with Verizon to accelerate the Cat M1/NB1 market. Both of these partnerships follow earlier partnerships with each on Cat 1 technology.

In other news, we are collaborating with our long-time partner, Ericsson, to demonstrate the value of LTE Cat 1 technology in the smart energy sector of IoT. The demo, featuring Ericsson’s “Smart Grid Node,” highlights the capabilities and efficiencies of LTE Cat 1 connectivity, using Sequans’ award-winning Calliope LTE Cat 1 chipset platform. LTE Cat 1 has been firmly established as viable in LTE for IoT applications such as smart utility meters and much more. See the demo in Ericsson?s booth, Hall 2, Stand 2N60.

We announced another partnership, this time on Cat 1 LTE technology, with Telstra, who is preparing their Cat 1 LTE network for deployment across Australia. Telstra’s network is ready to support the IoT and their trial using Sequans Cat 1 technology on their production network proves it.

During the show, Rohde & Schwarz and Sequans Communications will showcase functional testing of LTE modules for IoT using the R&S CMW290 functional radio communication tester and an LTE IoT module based on the Sequans Calliope LTE Category 1 chipset. This joint demonstration highlights the companies’ commitment to the Internet of Things (IoT) market. At the Rohde & Schwarz booth in hall 6, C40.
