FREMONT, CA: LE866-SV1, an LTE Category 1 module by Telit will now be available for use. The announcement was made by the firm after their IoT module was certified on Verizon’s 4G LTE network, the largest and most reliable LTE network in the US. Telit is a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT) and its new module will make IoT ideal for applications with severe space constraints such as wearable trackers, health monitoring devices, and smartwatches.

With its ultra-compact 15 x 25 mm LGA footprint, the World’s Smallest Internet of Things LTE Cat.1 cellular standard is well suited to meet technical and business requirements in the IoT. “The launch of this module, which is certified on Verizon’s 4G LTE network, is an important step for us in our rollout of products and capabilities for the growing Internet of Things market,” said Oozi Cats, Group Chief Executive, Telit. The new module by Telit will not only reduce design cost and complexity for blooming segments like fleet management, asset tracking, security and surveillance, the point of sale and smart metering but will also significantly increase battery life for wearable electronics. “The module will enable us to supply our customers with an ultra-compact, high-speed low power module for growing markets like wearable.  It is particularly suitable for both the health and sport sectors,” added Cats.

The Telit IoT Portal-ready LE866-SV1 is compatible with 2G and 3G modules as well and is also a member of the xE866-nested family. Fast time-to-market will also be enabled by this new module in geographical regions where LTE has not reached yet and GPRS and UMTS are still widely deployed. As the IoT module is associated with a nested family, it enables the developers to employ it as a single PCB layout for any connection technology.

 “About the size of a thumbnail, the world’s smallest LTE Cat.1 module at launch is an achievement and reaffirms our commitment to innovation leadership in the IoT,” concluded Cats.
