Huawei has launched its first module based on Sequans’ Monarch chipset.
The ME309-562 is designed to support M2M and IoT applications in the North American market using the LTE-M/NB-IoT standards. This is the first module to come to market following an agreement between the two companies in February.
“Huawei has moved quickly in bringing their first Monarch-based module to market and we are very pleased to see their aggressive response to demand from IoT customers,” said Georges Karam, CEO at Sequans. “Huawei is an important module partner for Sequans and we look forward to a long and productive relationship delivering LTE for IoT to device makers everywhere.”
The LTE Cat M1 module supports LTE bands 2, 4, 12, and 13 and numerous interfaces, including LGA (120 pin), UART, SIM, LED JTAG, power supply and antenna. It includes an embedded UDP/TCP/FTP/HTTP stack and proprietary FOTA.
The module is based on Sequans’ Monarch chipset that is specifically designed for narrowband IoT applications, including sensors, wearables, and other low data, low power M2M and IoT devices.
