Quad-band LTE Cat M1 module suitable for IoT and M2M applications

Quad-band LTE Cat M1 module suitable for IoT and M2M applications
u blox has announced what it claims to be the world’s smallest quad-band LTE Cat M1 module, the u-blox SARA R410M. By enabling remote devices to connect directly to 4G networks, the u-blox SARA R410M will aid the rollout of Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) applications, from smart metering to connected healthcare, and from industrial control and monitoring to smart buildings and cities. The 16x26mm form factor enables designers to keep device sizes to a minimum and is the same as u-blox’s existing 2G and 3G modules.
