Skywire® LTE-M Modem with GNSS

Skywire® LTE CAT-M1 embedded modems with GPS/GNSS are purpose-designed for IoT applications, particularly those requiring location-based functionality. Based on the Telit module ME910C1, the Skywire modem has FCC approval and end-device carrier certifications, which can save users months of testing and tens of thousands of dollars in cost. Like all Skywire® modems, they are compatible with a range of Skywire® development kits and microprocessor shields to accelerate product development and prototyping.

LTE-M modems deliver on the promise of low power provided by the 4G LTE CAT-M1 networks from carriers around North America. Optimized for battery operated, mobile, or remote applications the Skywire LTE CAT-M1 modems can function for over 12 years on 4 AA batteries.
