Developers, makers and Internet of Things enthusiasts may be interested in a new IoT cellular modem named the LTEm1. Designed to provide a next-generation IoT connection solution the development team at LooUQ responsible for the LTEm1 cellular modem have created a certified our IoT cellular modem, complete with support ecosystem. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about its design, specifications and features.
Launched via Kickstarter this week the LTEm1 IoT cellular modem is now available to back with pledges starting from $69 and shipping expected to take place throughout the United States during June 2019. “Are you ready to build the next wave of smart, connected thing? Has Bluetooth and WiFi limited your horizons? Does the option to place your IoT device anywhere in the US give you an enlightened wave of new ideas? When your device can go almost anywhere, what will you build?
Features of the LTEm1 Internet of Things cellular modem include:
– Small 48mm x 40mm x 9mm
– Low power with advanced power conservation modes (DRX, e-I-DRX)
– Integrated GPS/GNSS
– CAT M1 network certified now, NB-IOT coming soon
– Driven by the Quectel BG96 module and its embedded Qualcomm MDM9206
– Carrier supported over-the-air firmware update
“LTEm1 is a part of the next generation of LPWAN communication interfaces purpose-built for IoT. It is small, low-power, and designed for remote sensing and control applications. The LTEm1 is forward looking; delivering its functionality on the next generation of cellular protocols: LTE CAT M1, and future-ready with support for NB-IOT already built in. We have prepared a full-cast of supporting players for the LTEm1: software drivers, application examples, data plans, and a line of host interface boards to make incorporating the LTEm1 as straightforward as possible.”
