South Korean operator SK Telecom has certified Telit’s ME910C1-K1 LTE module for LTE Category M1 use. This gives Korean enterprises, smart cities and other organisations an option for leveraging SK Telecom's mobile IoT network.
With support for 375kbit/s uplink and 300kbit/s downlink, the ME910C1 enables a wide variety of fixed and mobile IoT applications, including smart metering, security, surveillance, point-of-sale terminals, fleet management and asset tracking.
Power saving modes and extended discontinuous reception make the device suitable for IoT applications that require long battery life such as water and gas meters, and health and wellness monitors. The device also provides reliable connections even when IoT devices are deep inside buildings or in underground garages and parking. It is available in versions for use in Japan, Europe, Australia and North America, as well as, a global variant for worldwide deployments.
The ME910C1-K1 joins a number of other Telit LTE modules certified for use on SK Telecom's network. This enables Korean IoT device manufacturers to apply their designs quickly to IoT products for sale in countries worldwide.
"SK Telecom's LTE Cat M1 certification of the ME910C1-K1 is the latest example of Telit's longstanding commitment to mastering the unique network and business requirements of Korea's leading operator," said Steven Kim, Telit senior sales director for Korea. "As the third Telit module certified by SK Telecom, the ME910C1-K1 also highlights our commitment to providing Korean IoT companies and their customers with the latest and greatest LTE solutions."
As a member of Telit's xE910 family, the ME910C1 can be applied as a drop-in replacement in existing devices based on the family's modules for 2G, 3G and the various categories of LTE. With Telit's design-once-use-anywhere philosophy, developers can cut costs and development time by designing for the xE910 LGA common form factors, giving them the freedom to deploy technologies best suited to the application.
