Particle: production-ready LTE cellular solution for future proofing IoT

Particle announced the release of its LTE-enabled, cellular E Series IoT module. This all-in-one cellular solution is the first commercially available LTE hardware module for IoT product creators to future proof their devices along retiring 2G and 3G networks. Particle’s LTE module includes built-in cloud and SIM support, and is certified for the newly available LTE networks designed just for IoT.

Long Term Evolution (LTE) CAT M1 network technologies are optimized for Internet of Things applications for a number of reasons. LTE hardware is less costly, offers longer battery life, and improved connectivity range. These features make novel IoT applications – such as distributed sensor networks for agriculture or hard-to-reach industrial monitoring environments – possible, whereas they were not economically feasible in the past. These features, combined with LTE’s superior coverage, will facilitate the next wave of successfully deployed IoT products. Additionally, as US carriers move to eliminate 2G networks and end new 2G/3G device certifications, Particle’s LTE E Series provides a much needed transition path for IoT product creators while avoiding costly disruptions.

The LTE modules are part of Particle’s existing E Series suite — an enterprise-level collection of cellular IoT solutions (including 2G, 3G, and now LTE models) — that come bundled with the Particle Device Cloud, Device OS, and Particle’s extensive collection of developer tools. Particle’s pre-integrated cellular solution provides a faster, far less complicated path to market by taking care of the vast majority of the challenges that plague commercial IoT development — not least of which includes the extensive, time-consuming, and costly certifications required of connected devices (e.g. FCC; PTCRB; and Carrier-Specific).

The LTE lineup includes two LTE CAT-M1 models (LTE B13 and LTE B2/4/5/12) and is fully certified, low profile, surface mountable for industrial environments, and powered by Qualcomm’s MDM9206 IoT Modem and u-blox’s SARA-R410-02B module.
