Sequans Wins “Most Innovative IoT / M2M Strategy” Award
June 9, 2015

Sequans has won an industry award for having “the most innovative IoT /M2M strategy.”  Awarded by Light Reading at its annual Leading Lights awards program, held this year at the Field Museum in Chicago, Sequans was recognized as the vendor that has unveiled the most innovative internet of things / machine-to-machine (IoT/M2M) strategy during the past year.  Sequans won for introducing the world’s first Cat 1 LTE chipset solution for IoT/M2M devices.

Sequans_Awards-6Sequans’ Cat 1 technology is embodied in its newest LTE chipset solution, Calliope, which is designed specifically for low cost / low power applications, such as M2M and wearables, that don’t need the high throughput of the Cat 3 or 4 LTE solutions prevalent in the market today.  Calliope was introduced in January, and In March, Sequans announced that its Cat 1 LTE technology had been successfully tested by Verizon Wireless and Ericsson in a network and device trial that proved the ability of Cat 1 LTE devices to coexist with other higher-performance LTE devices in Verizon’s network.

In an article about the Leading Lights finalists, Light Reading said about Sequans’ Cat 1 chip, “the Sequans chip potentially accelerates the timeline for IoT/M2M availability and adoption on a much broader scale.”

“We are pleased to have been recognized for our Calliope Cat 1 strategy,” said Sequans CEO, Georges Karam. “By designing Calliope specifically for the IoT / M2M market segment — making it extremely cost and power efficient — we have enabled LTE chipsets to be competitive in the celllular IoT device marketplace.


“Thanks Light Reading!”
