AT&T Approves Altair ALT1210 LTE-M Chipset on IoT Network

By Ken Briodagh November 20, 2017

Altair Semiconductor, a provider of LTE chipsets, recently announced that its ALT1210 LTE-M chipset has successfully completed the AT&T ADAPT chipset validation process, which process is designed to improve time-to-market and reduces the cost associated with the introduction of new Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

Building upon the first live network trial of LTE-M with AT&T, this chipset validation and commercial availability furthers Altair's commitment to AT&T and broadens the device and module partner ecosystem supporting LTE-M deployments. 

“LTE-M is essential to carriers’ cellular IoT strategies,” said Eran Eshed, VP, WW Sales and Marketing, Altair Semiconductor. “Being able to offer pre-certified chipsets and modules will significantly help vendors bring products to market quickly and cost-effectively. Our LTE-M collaboration with AT&T extends the existing and strategic CAT-1 engagement.”

The ALT1210 is an LTE-M IoT chipset with low power consumption, and is software upgradeable to single antenna LTE CAT-1. It is integrated with an on-chip PMU, DDR memory and a low-power MCU subsystem with a robust security framework for customer-developed applications.

“LTE-M has the potential to connect more devices and applications than anything before.  When you introduce a new technology like LTE-M, it's very important to bring together an ecosystem of network providers, module providers and chipset providers. Having Altair's ALT1210 LTE-M chipset certified on AT&T's network will help accelerate the promise of LTE-M,” said Cameron Coursey, VP, Internet of Things Solutions, AT&T.
