Telit has completed NTT Docomo interoperability testing for its LE910C1-AP and LE910C4-AP modules. This brings up to ten the number of its IoT modules with NTT Docomo interoperability testing completed.
 
This means they are available for IoT integrators and users to leverage NTT Docomo's network.
 
The LE910C1 provides 10Mbit/s download and 5Mbit/s upload LTE category one speeds, suitable for trackers, telematics, navigation, digital signage, ATMs, kiosks and video capture devices.
 
The LE910C4 provides LTE category four speeds, 150Mbit/s download and 50Mbit/s upload, which are suitable for mobile broadband routers, gateways and streaming video applications.
 
Both modules allow easy migration within Telit's xE910 family, and they can serve as wifi-to-LTE gateways when bundled with the Telit WE866C3-P wifi module. They also support VoLTE for IoT applications that require voice calls, as well as 3G fallback for use in areas that have not yet been upgraded to LTE.
 
The newly certified modules have the option of adding onboard GNSS positioning to support location-based IoT applications. Their satellite capabilities include simultaneous support of GPS, Glonass, Beidou, Galileo and QZSS, differential GPS for better accuracy using SBAS and RTCM messages, and all-in-view satellite tracking.
 
"With the addition of the LE910C1-AP and LE910C4-AP modules, Telit is able to provide our customers in Japan with a large selection of LTE modules for their IoT deployments for use on NTT Docomo's network," said Osamu Sato, country manager for Telit. "This highlights Telit's leadership in enabling Japan's IoT integrators, providers and their customers with the solutions necessary to leverage NTT Docomo's advanced network."
 
The modules support Telit AppZone, which simplifies product design with easy-to-use tools and APIs. AppZone can help developers reduce redundancy and optimise architecture, lowering the bill-of-materials costs.
