Telit has announced the ME310G1-W2, what the company claims is the world’s smallest LTE-M/NB-IoT module for use in the 450MHz band. Designed for demanding, mission and business critical applications in the field of public safety, smart grids, smart cities or e-health, the new module also provides a smooth upgrade path to LTE for existing CDMA 450 deployments.
Telit says that the ME310G1-W2 builds on the company’s extensive experience in the 450 MHz band, including as the supplier for the world’s largest CDMA 450 smart meter deployment and as a member of the 450 MHz Alliance. The new module also leverages Telit’s expertise in smart energy market, where it currently has more than 100 customers worldwide.
The 3GPP Release 14 Cat M1/NB2 module features Power Saving Mode (PSM) and extended Discontinuous Reception (eDRX) to maximize battery life, a key requirement for a wide range of IoT applications. The ME310G1-W2 also supports LTE-M and NB-IoT enhanced coverage modes, that together with the superior propagation characteristics of the 450MHz frequency, make this module the well suited to ensure reliable connectivity to smart meters and sensors even in the hardest to reach locations, including deep inside buildings. The ME310G1-W2 not only supports 450MHz but also the other common LTE bands used in Europe, to provide seamless roaming between private and public mobile networks.
As a member of Telit’s xE310 family, the ME310G1-W2 enables OEMs, integrators and IoT device vendors to leverage their existing designs as they expand into the 450MHz market or as they migrate their CDMA 450 products to LTE 450. The xE310 heritage also allows for global frequency coverage and the integration into ultra small-footprint IoT devices.
