u-blox 4G module wins Verizon Wireless certification

M2M hardware player u-blox says its new 4G LTE module has been certified for use on the network of US telecoms giant Verizon Wireless.

The Swiss company says certification opens the door to the development of M2M services and applications that will function on one of the country’s biggest 4G networks.

Customers will from now on be able to design the TOBY-L100 LTE module – as it is called – into devices operating on Verizon’s (New York City, NY, USA) LTE system.

Applications that can make use of the module include wireless routers, vehicle infotainment and telematics systems, industrial automation, metering, digital signage and security systems.

u-blox (Thalwil, Switzerland) describes the TOBY-L100 as an integrated solutions that includes power management and a USB 2.0 interface and can easily be embedded within an existing application.

It also notes that a mini PCI-express version – the MCPI-L100 – is available for customers with existing devices looking to migrate to the “more cost efficient and robust u-blox technology”.

“Having passed the certification requirements, we are pleased to offer our TOBY-L100 LTE module that will enable development of new and competitive products for industrial, automotive and consumer applications in the US,” said Nikolaos Papadopoulos, the president of u-blox America.

u-blox says the small form factor of the TOBY-L100 allows for a smooth migration to LTE from CDMA, GSM and HSPA modules, and that the new 4G module has backing from a team of “US-based applications engineers”.

The TOBY-L100 delivers ultra-fast rates, adds u-blox, and is capable of operating in a range of extreme temperatures, making it particularly suited to automotive applications.
