NimbeLink, a global leader in embedded cellular modem technology and asset tracking solutions, introduced the Skywire LTE-M modem in January 2017, becoming the first modem to be end-device certified on the Verizon 4G LTE Network. This low-power low-cost Skywire modem features a U.FL port for antenna flexibility and is pin-compatible, enabling future-proof migration to new technologies.

All Skywire modems are small, pin-compatible, and end-device certified, which enables easy integration with no further carrier testing requirements. This time-to-market advantage allows developers to quickly design-in connectivity to cellular networks around the world. All Skywire modems are patented and are backed by industry leading documentation and expert-level product support.
