Telit’s new LM960 is described as the world’s first global full-size PCI Express Mini Card (mPCle) available for enterprise routers and appliances. This global, 23-band product, supporting LTE Advanced Category 18 (Cat 18) has download speeds of up to 1.2Gbps and 5-band fallback to 3G. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon X20 LTE Modem.
“As the LTE standard evolves and matures, router and gateway OEMs can leverage the technology not only for high download bandwidth and near instant network response times but also for solid upload speeds and reliability as applications like high definition video streaming, digital signage, all-cellular commercial and enterprise internet and software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) access become increasingly more sophisticated”, Telit stated in product announcement.
The rugged LM960 is the first product in the mPCIe form factor to support Cat 18, according to Telit. It is a sibling of the Cat 11 LM940 and the 2 products are fully interchangeable.
“By bringing 5G-like performance to the market with the LM960, we are making it easier not only for customers looking to innovate in 1Gbps applications enabled by the new LM960 but also for customers across all industries and application areas,” said Manish Watwani, vice president global product marketing, Telit. “Telit continues to boast the broadest and most respected and globally supported portfolio of IoT modules, data cards, data plans, platforms and professional services for enterprise IoT adopters making vendor selection easy in an already crowded industry.”
“Band 14 support will not only facilitate use by first responder agencies in conjunction with the public safety network but will also benefit customers more broadly when the spectrum is not in use by first responders,” said Sam Lucero, senior principal analyst, IoT, for IHS Markit, a global business information provider.
The product will be available in select markets in third quarter of 2018, according to ongoing mobile network deployments of Cat 18 service.
