New white paper now available from Sequans’ technologists

Sequans recently introduced a line of cellular IoT modules based on its second-generation Cat 1 Calliope 2 chip. The new modules are ideal for those applications such as alarms and wearables or hearables that need throughput higher than LTE-M or need support for voice. Sequans pioneered the use of Cat 1 for IoT, and its second-generation Cat 1 technology brings significant advancements that have removed the cost and power barriers that previously inhibited the widespread adoption of Cat 1 for IoT.

In Sequans’ new Cat 1 white paper you’ll learn all about Cat 1 as a universal IoT solution and how it came to be optimized for IoT as it is in today’s market. Today, the world’s operators are shutting down their 2G and 3G networks and are re-farming the spectrum to use for the more efficient 4G and 5G. While LTE-M and NB-IoT were defined specifically for low power, low data rate IoT use cases, legacy Cat 1 can support a wider range of IoT use cases, and in the white paper you’ll learn how it complements LTE-M and NB-IoT, what applications it can enable, and how it has a key role to play today and in the years to come as an important and universal IoT solution as the world moves to 5G.

A very interesting read! Download it here.
