LTE Cat M1/NB1 multi mode module

15 November 2017 Electronics Technology

u-blox’ SARA R410M 02B is a configurable LTE Cat M1/NB1 multi mode module with worldwide coverage. At release, it was claimed to be the industry’s smallest module (16 x 26 mm) to offer both LTE Cat M1 and Cat NB1 in a single hardware package, as well as software based configurability for all deployed bands. Modes can be selected dynamically between Cat M1and Cat NB1 as either single or preferred connection.

Critical firmware updates can be delivered with a proprietary uFOTA (firmware over the air) client/server solution that uses LWM2M, a light and compact protocol that is ideal for IoT applications. This enables customers to continue using the same hardware for future enhancements to features, functionalities or operator certifications, making it well suited for crucial applications running on devices that may be deployed in the field over long periods of time.

Thanks to its nested design, migration to SARA R4 series from other u-blox 2G, 3G and 4G modules is made easy.
