MultiTech has once again expanded its market leading portfolio of embedded cellular SoM’s and modems announcing the availability of its first 4G-LTE Cat 1 models for the MultiConnect® Dragonfly™ family. Models supporting AT&T and Verizon are now fully end device certified and available.
These new models offer peak upload data rates of up to 5 Mbps and download data rates of up to 10 Mbps and are ideally suited for long lifetime IoT applications that require lower data rates (2G replacement), as well as battery- or solar-operated devices.
Users of the new LTE Cat 1 devices will benefit from a lower cost, competitive with 2G GPRS or 1xRTT devices, as well as reduced power consumption when compared to earlier LTE devices designed for broadband data speeds. In addition, the MultiConnect Dragonfly libraries have been updated to support ARM mbed OS 5.
