NimbeLink Expands Patent Portfolio – Announces Issuance of New U.S. Patent for Embedded Wireless Modem

Most recent patent demonstrates the company’s commitment to innovation and leadership in the cellular technology industry.

Plymouth, MN, January 18, 2017 – NimbeLink, the world’s leading provider of cellular technology, solutions and services, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued the company U.S. Patent US 9,838,066, entitled “Embedded Wireless Modem.”  The patent is a continuation of U.S. patent application Ser. No. 14/616,118.  The present invention is directed to improved, space-efficient embedded cellular modems for machine-to-machine communication.

NimbeLink’s patents include sophisticated technology, architecture, and engineering to protect its business and provide unique and industry-leading technology for its customers and partners.

“This proprietary technology offers our customers a quick and easy way to connect people, products, and things to the cellular network,” says Kurt Larson, Co-Founder and CTO of NimbeLink.  “We are confident that NimbeLink’s expanding intellectual property estate, including this newly issued patent, will provide our products with long-term market exclusivity.  This is particularly important, as industry awareness and acceptance of the Skywire product line and manufacturing techniques continues to grow quite rapidly.”

The market opportunity for embedded modems is large and expanding in a number of industries across the Internet of Things (IoT), including industrial, construction, supply chain, and others.  According to Counterpoint Technology Market Research, “Cellular IoT connections crossed half a billion subscriptions in 1H 2017.  It took a decade for the industry to reach half a billion IoT connections, however, the next half a billion milestone will be realized in less than a fourth of the time it took earlier.  This will drive the demand for cellular IoT modules.”

NimbeLink’s award-winning Skywire line of products are the best, fastest and some of the smallest cellular modems available.  Because Skywire modems offer the latest LTE CAT M1 technologies, higher speed LTE technologies, and legacy 3G and 2G technologies, the product line is appealing to companies with a multitude of cellular needs.  NimbeLink is always at the forefront of technological development and the company is prepared for the coming 5G technologies and will have solutions available for companies seeking or needing that technology.
