Asiatelco and Sequans Bring New LTE-M Vehicle Trackers to Market

By Ken Briodagh January 09, 2019

Sequans Communications, LTE for IoT chipmaker, and Asiatelco, maker of wireless devices for carriers, recently announced that four new IoT trackers based on Sequans and Asiatelco technology are launching on LTE-M networks in the USA, with other regions to follow. The announcement comes one year after Sequans and Asiatelco announced their collaboration to bring LTE for IoT devices to market based on Sequans’ dual-mode LTE-M/NB-IoT Platform, Monarch. The trackers are built using Asiatelco modules with Sequans’ Monarch inside, and were designed for various uses, including asset tracking and vehicle tracking for insurance and buy-here-pay-here applications. The new trackers will be on display at CES 2019.

“Our collaboration with Asiatelco has been very fruitful, and we are pleased to see these first four IoT trackers now going live,” said Georges Karam, CEO, Sequans. “Some of the new trackers are from customers moving to LTE-M from 2G technology, and some are from customers launching LTE-M trackers for the first time. All of the devices can also support NB-IoT, thanks to the dual-mode operation of Monarch. The new devices are the first four of several we expect to see launching this year based on the Asiatelco/Sequans collaboration.”


The IoT Evolution Expo, and collocated events, IoT Evolution Health, LPWAN Expo, The Smart City Event, and IIoT Conference, will take place Jan. 29 to Feb 1 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Visit IoTEvolutionExpo.com to register now.
