Telit Introduces High-speed IoT Module for Fixed Wireless LTE Broadband


Telit, a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT), has announced the new LE922A6, an LTE Category 6 (Cat 6) module series targeted at the growing market of fixed wireless LTE broadband applications. The module series is planned to evolve in lock step with worldwide carrier deployments of very-high speed LTE services starting now with Cat 6 at 300Mbps, going up to Cat 9 at 450Mbps and to Cat 12 at 600Mbps in the coming years.

The new nested form factor is designed to address specific requirements of network router and gateway manufacturers, the company said, thanks to its 34x40/40x40mm LGA footprint. The series launches with two variants, banded for the European and Australian markets with additional variants for the American and other regional markets to become available.

Fixed wireless is a cost-effective way to extend Internet access to rural and suburban areas underserved by wireline infrastructure and is gaining strength as a backup or failover solution for primary wireline Internet service in mission critical applications such as data centers, logistics depots, manufacturing sites and healthcare facilities.

“The LE922A6 is a significant introduction for Telit. It marks a number of ‘firsts’ for us: first module in the new xE922 form factor, first product for the fixed wireless router and gateway market segment and of course, first LTE Cat 6 module,” said Ronen Ben-Hamou, EVP, Products and Solutions, Telit. “With aggressive plans by mobile network operators everywhere to deploy very high-speed LTE services, we should see very successful applications of this technology by traditional network appliance manufacturers and very creative use of the feature-rich LTE standard.”

It is upward, pin-to-pin compatible with the 40x40mm footprint of upcoming Cat 9 and Cat 12 evolution variants. The 3GPP Release 10 compliant module supports LTE bands 800 (B20) / 1800 (B3) / 2600 (B7) for the LE922A6-E1 European variant and LTE 700 (B28) / 1800 (B3) / 2100 (B1) / 2600 (B7) / 2300 (B40) with 3G 900/2100MHz fallback bands for Australia’s LE922A6-A1 variant. The upload data rate is 50Mbps. The new module features extended operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C and supports voice over LTE (VoLTE).
