Gemalto’s ELS31 is the industry-first LTE Category 1 (Cat. 1) wireless module to revolutionize highly efficient 4G LTE connectivity tailored for Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and industrial Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The new Cinterion® M2M module meets the market need of power-optimized performance and single-mode LTE at speeds of up to 10Mbit/s download and 5Mbit/s uplink. This makes it an ideal solution for IoT applications such as metering, tracking and tracing, fleet management and mHealth that require the longevity and reliability of LTE in the decades ahead as 2G and 3G networks phase out.
The rugged Cinterion ELS31 is the first in a series of leading edge M2M-optimized LTE products from Gemalto. The solution delivers a long lifespan, significant bandwidth and power efficiencies and a feature set specific to the needs of industrial IoT solutions such as extended operating temperatures from -40°C to 85°C. Sharing the same footprint as existing Cinterion industrial portfolio products, the new module enables easy migration to LTE from 2G and 3G devices. All Cinterion modules come with Full Type Approval (FTA) and local network operator certifications to ensure easy integration and a fast time to market for innovative solutions. The Cat 1 LTE module joins the Cinterion family of integrated products leveraging Gemalto's core competencies on Machine Identification Modules (MIM™s), managed M2M platforms and security technology required for today's IoT world.
The unique and stable Cinterion module form factor of ELS31 supports an easy migration between existing and future standards. Currently, this form factor is supported in Gemalto 2G/3G modules. A potential migration to future standards is foreseen, LTE lower categories (e.g. Cat.0/Cat.M) will be supported in compatible modules.
