Skywire® Global LTE-M,

NB-IoT Embedded Modem

sku: NL-SW-LTE-TG1WWG

NimbeLink, a global leader in embedded cellular modem technology and asset tracking solutions, has introduced the Skywire NL-SW-LTE-TG1WWG modem. This new Skywire modem offers LTE-M (CAT M1) and NB-IoT (NB1, NB2) connectivity for global applications with fallback to 2G. The modem also includes an integrated GPS/GNSS radio. The NL-SW-LTE-TG1WWG is compatible with many of the world’s LTE-M and NB-IoT networks.

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.

Farm Jenny Case Study

See How Our Customers Use Skywire

Farm Jenny’s founders had a vision: 24/7 horse monitoring. The inspiration for this product came from decades in the technology industry while owning a small horse farm.

From the start, they knew they wanted to use an embedded modem vs. a module in their design to obtain data on the movement and condition of the horses. They were seeking an end-device certified option that could be adapted to their unique needs. Farm Jenny also needed their product to be a simple purchasing experience for customers by offering a single product SKU with a wide range of carrier options.
