Sequans Communications Delivers Low Cost NB-IoT Module

By Chrissie Cluney December 17, 2019

Sequans Communications reportedly has delivered the first module based on its second-generation Monarch N chip that is optimized for low-cost/low-power NB-IoT operation.

The Monarch NB02S is an integrated module that features an EAL5+ Secure Element that is designed to enable the integration of the SIM card inside the module. The NB02S also is designed to propel mass adoption of 5G cellular IoT by reducing component count and complexity.

“It cannot be overstated how important the new, cost-optimized Monarch NB02S will be in accelerating mass adoption of IoT,” said Georges Karam, CEO, Sequans Communications. “In addition to its significant cost and power advantages, it is the first module of its kind in the industry with integrated SIM capability, enabling it to provide seamless and ubiquitous connectivity, while removing the complexity that comes with sourcing data plans and SIM cards.”

When linked with pre-paid connectivity, the company says that Monarch NB02S can be used like a Bluetooth or Wi-Fi module, without a gateway. This capability reportedly gives IoT device makers the ability to design once and deploy anywhere, quickly, easily, and—most important—cost-effectively.

“There is now an NB-IoT module that can support just about any NB-IoT application imaginable and make the business case viable,” said Karam. “Because Sequans owns all of the technology needed to build this module—both chip and software—we can offer device makers the lowest total cost of ownership as well as the fastest time to market. We are pleased to introduce Monarch NB02S to the industry—it will be a game changer.”
