Particle’s LTE module includes built-in cloud and SIM support, and is certified for the newly available LTE networks designed just for IoT. Long Term Evolution (LTE) CAT M1 network technologies are optimized for Internet of Things applications for a number of reasons.
LTE hardware is less costly, offers longer battery life, and improved connectivity range. These features, combined with LTE’s superior coverage, will facilitate the next wave of successfully deployed IoT products.
The LTE lineup includes two LTE CAT-M1 models (LTE B13 and LTE B2/4/5/12) and is fully certified, low profile, surface mountable for industrial environments, and powered by Qualcomm’s MDM9206 IoT Modem and u-blox’s SARA-R410-02B module. Customers can order a Particle E Series Evaluation Kit which includes an E Series Evaluation Board with LTE global connectivity, a sample IoT sensor (temperature), and accessories to build an industrial proof-of-concept for $89.
