- The chipset platform ensures the longevity of IoT applications
- Offers integrated wireless technology with built‑in end‑to‑end security
u-blox announces that its UBX-R5 multi-band Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) chipset is now AT&T certified. The platform operates on the carrier’s LTE-M network for the Internet of Things and features end-to-end device security, data security and access control management.
The cellular chipset platform supports LPWA LTE-M and NB-IoT technologies. It has been optimised for the long life-cycle of IoT applications such as smart metering, telematics, tracking, security systems, building automation, as well as smart lighting solutions and connected health. It implements key features of 3GPP Release 14, thereby fulfilling the need for longevity in IoT solutions.
“The u-blox UBX-R5 chipset will help meet the demand for IoT-optimized chipsets with innovation in enhanced security and high levels of integration,” said Cameron Coursey, vice president, Advanced Solutions, AT&T. “Having the chipset on our LTE-M network will contribute to a vibrant ecosystem that is critical to realizing the full potential of massive IoT.”
UBX-R5 also offers unmatched built-in end‑to‑end security, thanks to a hardware-based root of trust (RoT) integrated into a discrete secure element that is compliant with EAL5+ High common criteria certification. This makes it ideally suited to protect sensitive assets and communications.
The platform also offers integrated eSIM capability, offering customers SIM activation and subscription management options.
