Telit LTE module joins UK Emergency Services Network (ESN) lineup
Telit, a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced that its LM960A18 PCI Express Mini Card (mPCIe) is the first Gigabit LTE module to go through the United Kingdom's Emergency Services Network (ESN) review for use by the ecosystem. Joining the ESN lineup is the latest milestone in Telit's commitment to providing the first responder community with solutions and support for potentially lifesaving applications. The LM960A18 is an IoT module that ESN original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), such as handheld devices and wireless routers, can use for gigabit cellular communications. Telit's LM960A18 is the first full industrial-grade, Cat 18 mPCIe module, a form factor that's compatible with a wide variety of first responder devices, such as gateways and network routers inside fire trucks, ambulances and other first responder vehicles. The LM960A18 supports multiple RF bands and band combinations to accommodate global deployments with 3G fallback. It also supports multiple satellite location technologies including GPS.
The LM960A18 has LTE Advanced Pro Category 18 technology, capable of 1.2 Gbps download and 150 Mbps upload speeds, thanks to the support of inter-band uplink carrier aggregation, which makes it ideal for bi-directional bandwidth-intensive public safety applications, such as live streaming, high-definition video and first responder vehicular routers.
