All Encompassing IoT Module Provides Global LTE Connectivity

Gemalto expands Industrial IoT (IIoT) connectivity with what it claims is the industry’s first IoT module to provide global connectivity on 12 LTE bands plus, 3G and 2G cellular coverage all from a single device. Reportedly, this simplifies logistics and distribution and lowers the cost of global IoT deployments.

 

The Cinterion PLS62-W IoT Module delivers highly efficient LTE Cat. 1 connectivity on all 12 LTE bands while providing seamless fallback to multi band 3G and 2G networks if 4G is not available. This allows device manufacturers and integrators to develop one application that can connect anywhere in the world, even when solutions move between different regions and cellular network standards.
