Skywire® 4G LTE CAT 4 Embedded Modem

sku: NL-SW-LTE-S7588

The Skywire® LTE CAT 4 embedded modem can be used on either the Verizon or AT&T cellular networks and is effective for high-bandwidth applications. The CAT4 features a SIM card slot that will accommodate a SIM from either the Verizon or AT&T networks and features 2G and 3G fallback.

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.
