Skywire Nano

Global LTE-M

NimbeLink, a global leader in embedded cellular modem technology and asset tracking solutions, has introduced the Skywire Nano. The NL-SWN-LTE-NRF9160 offers LTE-M (CAT M1) connectivity for global applications, and also includes an integrated GPS receiver.  This super small LTE-M embedded modem is packed with some big possibilities. Build your next IoT device, smaller but more powerful with features including an on-board processor, access to global LTE-M networks, carrier end-device certification and world class NimbeLink support.

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. 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.
