OriginGPS added Gemalto to its OriginIoT LTE-M System
27 February, 2018
Developers can now develop IoT products from the cloud without writing embedded code. The Cinterion module extend device battery life for some use cases for 10+ years
OriginGPS added Gemalto’s Cinterion LTE-M wireless module, to cellular IoT systems for the building of its latest miniature OriginIoT solution. OriginIoT series is a family of generic cellular IoT systems that includes communication hardware, a GNSS module, embedded software, and an interface to accommodate multiple sensors and peripheral devices. OriginIoT LTE-M system has a 15% smaller footprint than the previous 2G and 3G models, and will be pre-certified with selected operators.
“We designed the OriginIoT LTE-M to address market pains,” said Robert van Tilburg, VP Global Sales and Business Development of OriginGPS. “The new offering includes low power consumption, superb GNSS/cellular matching, interfaces to multiple connectors, and software to enable developing from the convenience of the cloud. Gemalto’s Cinterion IoT module enables us to retain their world’s smallest footprint, while enhancing their security and extending end-product life.”
Cinterion LTE-M module from Gemalto supports more than 10 frequency bands from a single hardware device, eliminating the need for multiple variants. The module protocols can run on the same hardware, thus providing a future-proof path for additional OriginIoT models.
OriginGPS from Lod, Israel, develops and provides miniature GPS/GNSS solutions and integrates them into its cellular IoT systems. The OriginIoT products support three cellular technologies: LTE Cat-1, mainly for IoT applications requiring a browser interface or voice, LTE Cat-M1 mainly for low power consumption and low priced modules, and NB-IoT which features narrower bandwidth and quicker response time. It is considered the potentially less expensive option, and more suitable for IoT purposes.
