Skywire® 4G LTE CAT 4 North America Embedded Modem

SKU: NL-SW-LTE-TC4NAG

The Skywire® 4G LTE CAT 4 NA embedded modem leverages Category 4 technology. This embedded modem is ideal for delivering fast, reliable cellular connectivity for products in North America. The modem supports GNSS, dual SIMs, a single SKU for North American carrier networks and onboard network stacks. This embedded modem is also capable of running on FirstNet and includes support for Band 14.

The NL-SW-LTE-TC4NAG is pin compatible with previous modems and is designed to replace the NimbeLink CAT 3 Skywires NL-SW-LTE-TNAG-X and NL-SW-LTE-TSVG-X, with higher performance at a lower cost.

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.
