FREMONT, CA: NimbeLink, the provider of IoT and M2M solutions, announces that its 4G LTE CAT 1 embedded and external modems specifically designed for IoT and M2M applications are now generally available in the market space. The 4G LTE CAT 1 embedded modem with FCC and carrier-required end-device-certification expands NimbeLink’s Skywire family of cellular modems. According to Scott Schwalbe, Founder and CEO, NimbeLink, CAT 1 is a crucial part of this next wave of transformative technology for IoT and M2M applications.

The Skywire family is the smallest available modems in the market and its Cellular Modems can be plugged into the Ethernet port of an existing device, delivers fast, easy cellular access. Similarly, the Skywire CAT 1 E2C Link can be used to convert a device’s Ethernet output for cellular transmission and the Skywire CAT 1 S2C Link does the same for serial output.

The modem only uses low power in which it requires just voltage and a UART or USB connection and supports a wide range of voltages for design flexibility. Also, the 4G LTE CAT 1 is compatible with a variety of NimbeLink development kits, adapters, and microprocessor capes, allowing fast, easy integration of cellular connectivity into new and existing products. The modem also shares Digi’s XBEE standard interface with all other modems in the Skywire family, ensuring long product life and its U.F.L port delivers antenna flexibility.

The modems are available with bundled data plans to speed-up cellular-enabled IoT and M2M products and the plug-and-play Skywire E2C Link and S2C Link CAT 1 modems helps to extend the life of existing products.
