Sequans, provider of the world’s most highly-optimized LTE for IoT chip, Monarch, will be exhibiting its latest Monarch powered devices and running live demos at Mobile World Congress Barcelona. Please visit us in Hall 5, stand 5C87.

GSMA 8th Mobile IoT Summit

To kick things off, on Sunday, February 24, Sequans’ CEO will be presenting at GSMA’s 8th Mobile IoT Summit, to be held from noon to 5:00 at the Hesperia Barcelona Tower.

The summit has become one of the most popular IoT intelligence gathering The summit has become one of the most popular IoT intelligence gathering events at MWC and it promises to deliver again this year with the biggest crowd ever already registered to attend. You’ll hear from senior IoT experts from AT&T, Gemalto, Ericsson, Nokia, SingTel, Vodafone, Telefonica, and Sequans. Keynotes will be given by Huawei and AT&T, followed by a panel discussion on mobile IoT business opportunities with BeWhere, Ericsson, Nokia, and T-Systems International. This will be followed by a customer deployment presentation by Orange, and a joint presentation by Sequans and Gemalto, whose LTE for IoT partnership has been very successful. The last part of the afternoon is devoted to an operator panel discussion with SingTel, Telefonica, Verizon, and Vodafone. Lunch will be served and there is a networking break in the middle and an hour-long networking session at the end where you will be able see IoT demos and speak one-on-one to IoT experts. Don’t miss it! Registration is free, but space is limited.


Sequans and ST Microelectronics Join Forces


Powerful New IoT Development Kit Now Available

Sequans and ST have developed a cellular extension board for STM32 Discovery kits based on Sequans’ Monarch LTE-M/NB-IoT chip platform and ST has enlarged its STM32CUBE cellular library to support Sequans’ existing Monarch-based module, GM01Q. This new solution, GM01Q STMod, gives developers a powerful and simplified IoT development kit packed with IoT drivers and easy-to-use features to quickly establish a cellular-to-cloud connection. Learn more about the new dev kit at MWC and see how the new dev kit can jumpstart your IoT project.

New Sequans-Powered Devices on Display – Wearables, Trackers, and More

Visit us in hall 5, stand 5C87 to see live demos and new Sequans-powered devices on display. We’ve got two large display cases showing wearables, vehicle trackers, consumer trackers, and some interesting new devices for vertical market applications for which we’ve developed customized technology solutions for some of the world’s most exciting communications projects.

Live Tracker Demos

No one knows more about tracking objects than Sequans. Come and see a live demo of two new IoT trackers from Polymer Logistics and Trackimo, both powered by Sequans’ Monarch. Polymer Logistics’ Smart IoT Tracker is specifically designed for tracking industrial pallets, and Trackimo’s is specifically designed for tracking people and other types of assets.

Live Demonstration of LTE-M, AI, and Edge Computing

What cool thing can you do with Sequans’ world-leading Monarch LTE-M connectivity, AI, and edge computing? Discover Brainium’s Predictive Maintenance AI with a SmartEdge Agile IoT device, operating live on the LTE-M network. Brainium is a sensor-to-cloud solution with AI and security at the edge. You’ll see a live motor vibration analysis, featuring the Monarch-powered SmartEdge Agile IoT device collecting data, combined with Brainium’s AI and edge computing solution. The demo shows how bringing data analysis and processing closer to the source reduces bandwidth and latency. This is state-of-the-art industrial IoT in action and it is very exciting!

Partnering with Deutsche Telekom


Live Demonstration of Deutsche Telekom’s IoT Solution Optimizer

Deutsche Telekom has introduced its IoT Solution Optimizer, which is a scalable online tool that provides technical consultancy and customer onboarding services for IoT businesses such as smart city services, asset tracking, or security. The service combines the hardware, application and network feature elements necessary to assess IoT solution designs and it aims to be a valuable tool for users to model their own customer designs or start with a standard IoT offering off the shelf. See to the IoT Solution Optimizer in our booth and see how easy it is to follow step-by-step instructions that can streamline the launch of your IoT application. With the IoT Solution Optimizer, you can assemble a “virtual twin” of the product you want to deploy and see how it can be optimized for live deployment.

In Deutsche Telekom’s booth, hall 3, stand 3M31, we are participating in Deutsche Telekom’s IoT Solutions Optimizer partner session on Tuesday, Feb 26, from 12:30 to 2:30 PM. Our CMO, Didier Dutronc is speaking.

nuSIM – Deutsche Telekom’s Integrated SIM Debuts

We are proud to be a chip partner to Deutsche Telekom on nuSIM – a ground breaking solution that moves the SIM functionality from the physical SIM card directly to the chipset. The solution brings time and cost savings to IoT device makers, who also benefit from extended battery life and better design options due to smaller package size. Sequans’ strategy aligns perfectly with Deutsche Telekom’s regarding integrated SIM and you can learn more about it at DT’s integrated SIM session on Wednesday, February 27 from 1:00 to 1:45.

GSMA Innovation City

GSMA’s Innovation City is one of the most heavily traveled zones in all of MWC. NimbeLink’s Asset Tracking Solution, based on Sequans Monarch LTE-M/NB-IoT platform, is powering a very exciting live demo at Innovation City, located in Hall 4. NimbeLink’s asset tracking solution will be monitoring the location, motion, temperature, and humidity of a live beehive, showing how important IoT sensing, tracking, and analytics can be in agricultural applications. Don’t miss it.

Monarch – Now Certified All Over the World

While it is well-known that Sequans’ Monarch chip is the most highly optimized LTE-M and NB-IoT chip in the world, it has also been rightfully called the “most important” in that it was the first chip to appear in the market, the first to become operator-certified, and the first to power an LTE-M device for the very first LTE-M network back in 2017, and today it is certified by more operators in more places around the world that any other—USA, Japan, Australia, Europe. Monarch is the most proven and mature solution in the entire industry.

A New Generation of LTE for IoT Has Arrived!

In a major industry development, Sequans has introduced Monarch 2, the second generation of the world’s most advanced LTE-M / NB-IoT chip platform.  Monarch 2 is based on Sequans’ exclusive and proven experience with first generation Monarch and it is amazing. See press release.
