Skywire® 4G LTE CAT 1 Embedded Modem for Verizon – Gemalto

sku: NL-SW-LTE-GELS3

This Skywire® LTE CAT 1 embedded modem is based on the Gemalto module. Like all embedded modems in the Skywire family, the LTE CAT 1 is end-device certified and compatible with a variety of NimbeLink development kits, adapters, and microprocessor capes. This modem is designed for deployment within the U.S. on the Verizon LTE network.

Skywire embedded modems dramatically reduce the cost, risks and timelines of IoT product development. With known-good RF engineering and fully validated software, Skywire allows you to focus on your application and not engineering cellular radios. Standardized connectivity gives you flexibility to update and alternate radios for new geographies, carriers and technologies. Further, our embedded modems are “End-Device Certified”, meaning your end-product will not need to go through the complex process of carrier certification. This is critical for the first release of your product and each iteration as you obtain market feedback. Skywire modems significantly reduce time-to-market and are ideal for product development through large-scale production. All Skywire modems are patented and backed by industry leading documentation and expert-level product support.
