Please Join Us at Distributech International

Stop by booth 850 and learn how Sequans’ advanced cellular modules, with features especially important for energy metering applications, including ultra-low power consumption, corrosion-resistant packaging, and integrated and certified iSIM, can help you become one of the world’s leading AMI providers with state-of-the-art smart meters.

4G/5G cellular is now widely recognized as the best connectivity choice for the AMI industry. Let us tell you why.

Industry-Leading AMI Solutions

We deliver the capabilities demanded by AMI providers and have become a trusted supplier to some of the leaders

Our Monarch LTE-M/NB-IoT solutions feature ultra-low power consumption, down to 1uA in PSM, the best in the industry, which has allowed our customers to achieve ultra-long battery life (20+ years!) for their gas and water meters. And they are future proof—not only because they support both LTE-M and NB-IoT in one solution, but also because they have been built to enable seamless migration from 4G to 5G, thereby supporting long in-field deployments with no expensive truck rolls.

We support full integration with mesh technologies, and we are integrated with the major MCU solutions providers (Renesas, Microchip, NXP) that are used in many of today’s smart meters. Our customers are today deploying AMI solutions all over the world, including USA, Japan, Taiwan, and Australia.

Monarch SiP with Specialized Packaging for Gas and Water Meters

Our Monarch SiP module, a special solution co-developed with Skyworks, features silver-free packaging that doesn’t corrode in the harsh underground environments of gas and water meter installations

Developed specifically for AMI applications, the over-molded BGA package of Monarch SiP allows for multiple reflows for significant system level cost savings, and use of less expensive potting materials. Our holistic approach goes beyond the chip and module to deliver a full system solution. Customers using Monarch SiP for their gas or water meter installations can use the same software when moving to Monarch GM02S, or our newest Calliope 2 Cat 1 modules for electricity meters where higher bandwidth may be warranted. We have thought of everything.

Integrated SIM and Ultra High Security

Monarch and Calliope module solutions achieved Common Criteria EAL5+ certification

Our newest Monarch and Calliope module solutions include our powerful GSMA-compliant iSIM technology that has achieved Common Criteria EAL5+ certification—a world first among cellular chipmakers. Using the iSIM capability, utilities operators, including private LTE network operators, can remotely provision their subscribers and alleviate any network related longevity concerns.

Modules for Private LTE Distribution Networks

The only Cat 4 CBRS solution certified in the USA

For energy companies like Alabama Power, Southern Edison, and San Diego Gas and Electric who have acquired their own spectrum to set up private LTE networks, we offer our certified CBRS module, Cassiopeia CB410L—the only Cat 4 CBRS solution certified in the USA—which can ensure longevity for LTE utilities distribution networks.

Sequans is a member of the Anterix Active Ecosystem, supporting the use of private LTE 900 MHz for the utility industry.

We look forward to meeting with you at Distributech to discuss how our technology can help you create the best possible AMI network or smart meter. Contact us at events@sequans.com to set a meeting with one of our IoT specialists.

We look forward to meeting you in Dallas!
