Telit, a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT) has launched the LE940A9 smart module, the industry’s first automotive-grade module that supports LTE Advanced Category 9 (Cat 9) networks.
The series offers three multi-band, multi-mode variants, including Voice-over-LTE (VoLTE), and is optimized for automobile manufacturers to deploy next generation connected car technology in top world markets.
The LE940A9 delivers 450 Mbps download and 50 Mbps upload speeds with extremely low latency and advanced security, enabling the next wave of automobile industry’s applications and services which also serve as a springboard for autonomous driving.
From commercial and consumer telematics services, to autonomous driving and driver assistance features, along with a host of other applications dependent on remote software updates, including infotainment; secure, wired broadband-like speed is now a requirement. The evolution to high-speed wireless connectivity is only possible if powered by LTE Advanced, with little to no lag time, for the applications to work.
Yossi Moscovitz, CEO, Telit Automotive Solutions said, “Not only does the LE940A9 enable unprecedented applications with the speed and low latency of Cat 9 of the multi-mode variants but also simplifies integration and reduces costs that help accelerate the development of our OEM partners’ global roadmaps.”
The LE940A9 powers the entire connected car platform, supporting current needs while including advanced features that enable future integration of up-coming value-added, telematics and managed services. The module can run in-vehicle applications inside a secure processing environment from the built-in application processor, storage and memory. Automotive application programs can run entirely and securely on the module itself protected by advanced cyber-security capabilities.
