Gemalto Launches All-in-One IoT Module for Global LTE

By Ken Briodagh November 09, 2017

Gemalto is expanding Industrial IoT (IIoT) connectivity with what it is calling a breakthrough in wireless engineering: a new IoT module that provides global connectivity on 12 LTE bands plus 3G and 2G cellular coverage, all from a single device.

In the decade ahead, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) market value is expected to exceed $195 billion, according to some research, mostly in the manufacturing, energy and transportation sectors. Called the 4th Industrial Revolution, the IIoT relies on efficient, global connectivity solutions.

The new Gemalto Cinterion PLS62-W IoT Module is designed to deliver efficient LTE Cat 1 connectivity on all 12 LTE bands while providing seamless fallback to multi band 3G and 2G networks if 4G is not available. This allows device manufacturers and integrators to develop one application that can connect anywhere in the world, even when solutions move between different regions and cellular network standards.

A Java-embedded system included in the IoT Module reportedly adds processing power to IoT solutions. It makes application design easier and faster by sharing memory, a large library of existing open source code, and recognized software building blocks.

Its power management system is set up for reliability and provides optimized sleep mode to preserve power and extend battery life. This, Gemalto said, is critical for remote industrial applications, a sector expected to reach 5.2 billion in by 2025.

 “Ideal for worldwide tracking and tracing, telematics and fleet management solutions, the Cinterion multi band LTE Cat 1 module with 3G, 2G fallback is a one stop shop for cellular IoT connectivity, no matter where your IoT solutions are deployed or where they move,” said Andreas Haegele, SVP, IoT products, Gemalto. “The highly efficient Cinterion PLS62-W is perfectly suited for applications that need to operate across many different wireless network environments for many years.”
