By Ken Briodagh October 02, 2017

Telit, a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT), has announced it is expanding its xL865 family of cost-optimized compact modules to include an LTE Cat NB1 series. The QFN module family offers Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) Narrow Band IoT (NB-IoT) connectivity, compatible with existing 2G and 3G models.

“Telit has been supplying xL865 modules worldwide since 2011 to customers from small to multi-national Fortune 1000 companies. One of the things that has made the form factor so popular is our design-once-use-anywhere philosophy that, along with other customer-value centric directives, guides the development of all our modules,” said Sandro Spanghero, SVP, Global Products Management, Telit. “By extending this product family to support new and rising IoT standards like NBIoT in combination with our Telit IoT Platforms and IoT Connectivity, we are establishing the xL865 as a solution for the thousands of new and existing customers looking to improve customer experience, scalability and other factors critical to their business performance.”

IoT devices are growing increasingly dependent on battery-only power and being deployed in environments demanding outstanding performance for in-building penetration and massive scale deployment. The new NL865B1-E1 module, banded for use in Europe and China, is designed to address these requirements while extending the life of existing products with long-term longevity of the LTE Cat NB1 standard.
