Sequans delivers LTE for M2M, IoT on T-Mobile US network

31 Aug 2016

Paris-based Sequans Communications has been contracted by T-Mobile US to deliver its LTE Cat 1 technology and products to the cellco’s machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) customers. Sequans’ Calliope LTE Cat 1 chipset platform, which supports VoLTE and enables a wide range of industrial and consumer IoT applications, including asset tracking, alarm systems, telematics devices and smart utility meters, is now certified and available for use on T-Mobile’s network. The two companies prepared for the launch of LTE Cat 1 IoT devices on T-Mobile’s network by conducting a successful network and device trial on T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network last year, the press release notes.

Doug Chartier, senior vice president, IoT, Wholesale and National Retail at T-Mobile, commented: ‘Unlike the old guard carriers, T-Mobile’s focus is listening to, and helping solve, wireless customers’ pain points – for our IoT customers that means delivering a future-proof network migration path from 2G to 4G LTE.’
