Verizon Wireless has certified the ultra-compact TOBY-L100 4G LTE module from u-blox, enabling customers to leverage the Verizion Wireless network to develop IoT and M2M applications. The certification allows customers to design u-blox’s TOBY-L100 LTE modules into devices operating on Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network.
Applications using u-blox’ TOBY-L100 module include wireless routers, vehicle infotainment and telematics systems, industrial automation, metering, digital signage and security systems. The module is a fully integrated solution complete with power management, IP stack and USB 2.0 interface that can be easily embedded within an existing application. A mini PCI-express version, the MPCI-L100, is also available for customers with existing devices who want to easily migrate to the more cost-efficient and robust u-blox technology.
TOBY-L100’s small form factor supports u-blox’s nested design philosophy which allows smooth migration to LTE from u-blox’s CDMA, GSM, and HSPA modules. The module is also backed by a team of U.S-based applications engineers, to provide comprehensive technical support. The LTE module delivers ultra-fast data rates and operates in the automotive temperature range from -40 to +85°C. USB drivers for Windows XP and Windows 7, as well as RIL software for Android 4.0 and 4.2 are available free of charge.
The LGA format module measures 22.8x35.6x2.8mm3, allowing for easy manufacturing. An evaluation kit EVK-L10 with the leading evaluation software m-center is also available.
