Skywire LTE-M Modem for Verizon Network

With the price and speed users need for IoT applications, NimbeLink’s Skywire® LTE-M (CAT M1) embedded modems take full advantage of the modern 4G LTE network. They will replace discontinued 2G service and, in some applications, higher cost LTE CAT 1 modems, also designed for IoT.

The patented Skywire LTE-M modem was the industry’s first LTE-M embedded modems with FCC and carrier-required end-device-certification, eliminating months of testing and tens of thousands of dollars in cost for product developers. Skywire LTE-M modems are among the smallest in the industry and are compatible with a variety of Skywire development kits and microprocessor shields.
