Gemalto LTE Cat. 1 solution receives IoT Evolution Connected Home & Building Award

Security , IT Innovations

Gemalto, the world-leading provider of digital security solutions has won the 2016 IoT Evolution Connected Home & Building Award for its Cinterion LTE Cat. 1 wireless module. The award from IoT Evolution honors organizations delivering the most innovative solutions that are advancing the smart home and building industry. The first-of-its kind Cinterion module was selected for delivering highly efficient Cat. 1 LTE connectivity with seamless fallback to 2G and 3G networks, which is ideal for smart home and building applications such as metering, alarm systems and remote building maintenance. 

The Cinterion ELS61 LTE Cat. 1 module is part of a family of Low Power Wide Area M2M connectivity solutions designed for IoT applications t hat require the future proofing offered by LTE networks but don't need the higher speeds they offer. The module provides advantages in power efficiency and size while delivering M2M-optimized speeds of 10 Mbit/s download and 5Mbit/s uplink. 

Connected Home IoT device makers can also benefit greatly from Gemalto´s On-Demand Connectivity (ODC) offering, in conjunction with the easy implementation of an eSIM (embedded SIM) in their initial designs. ODC enables remote activation of network connectivity when the device is powered on for the first time. This helps to reduce the number of manufacturing variants required, and simplify network subscription management for devices with particularly long lifecycles.

"The award from IoT Evolution highlights Gemalto's commitment to innovating leading edge solutions that connect, secure and monetize the expanding Internet of Things," said Andreas Haegele, Senior Vice President IoT Products Business Line at Gemalto. "The Cinterion LTE Cat. 1 solution provides both network and power efficiency, and shares the same footprint as all modules in our Industrial Family to provide a clear migration path to LTE Cat. M1, LTE NB and forthcoming MTC technologies."
