Telit, a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced that it has upgraded its two top selling Sprint IoT modules to support band class 10. The improvement is critical because it provides better in-building penetration. The CE910-DUAL and CL865-DUAL upgraded modules allow customers to deploy an even wider range of applications benefiting from the additional flexibility of the 800MHz service over Sprint’s nationwide network.
The CE910-DUAL and CL865-DUAL pack high value features in ultra-compact 28.2 x 28.2 x 2.0 mm LGA and 24.4 x 24.4 x 2.4 mm QFN packages respectively. Both modules support USB 2.0, full-duplex data rate of 153.6Kpbs and extended operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C making them suitable platforms for mobile and fixed applications such as vending, point-of-sale (POS), tracking, smart metering, and telematics devices.
“With these upgraded IoT modules and Sprint’s commitment to operating its CDMA network, Sprint and Telit customers have a solid platform to develop, launch and operate new IoT products on Sprint’s proven and reliable CDMA 1xRTT network,” said Mike Ueland, President, Telit Americas. “Devices designed with class 10 capable modules enjoy benefits like better operation in buildings and urban environments.”
“We are excited to partner with Telit on the release of these two products,” said David Svoren, Manager of Product Portfolio for Sprint’s IoT Division. “Sprint’s commitment to support 1XRtt and EVDO devices allows our customers to plan for a migration path from CDMA to LTE without being forced into an immediate upgrade or device redesign to accommodate connectivity.”
Part of the xE910 form factor family, the CE910-DUAL protects investments by offering completely interchangeable solutions for the Sprint network between 1xRTT and EV-DO Rev. A with the DE910-DUAL.
The CL865 is currently shipping sample and commercial orders. Shipments of the CE910 start in Q1 2016. For more information about the CL865-DUAL or CE910-DUAL and other Telit products and services, visit www.telit.com.
