Telit launches GNSS module with 2G fallback for Latin America
Telit, a global Internet of Things (IoT) enabler, has launched the LE910S1-ELG, a new LTE Cat 1 module designed for IoT applications in Latin America (LATAM) that require a combination of performance, affordability, voice support and 2G fallback in a compact form factor.
With a built-in GNSS receiver, the cost-optimized LE910S1-ELG is suitable for tracking applications such as fleet management, stolen vehicle tracking and recovery, and other mobile IoT applications that need to maintain a reliable connection while traveling in a country, a region or several regions.
The LE910S1-ELG is the latest member of Telit’s flagship xE910 module family, whose unified form factor and electrical and programming interfaces covering 2G, 3G and 4G products enable developers to implement a strategy of ” unique design, use anywhere â. The module supports LTE Cat 1 with single antenna reception, providing downlink speeds of up to 10Mbps and uplink speeds of up to 5Mbps. Its simplified configuration, compared to LTE Cat 1 devices with two antennas, significantly reduces costs and complexity.
Supporting 2G fallback, the LE910S1-ELG is suitable for applications that require full mobility in all LATAM regions, including areas that have not yet been upgraded to 4G. It also supports circuit-switched voice and VoLTE for applications that require making phone calls, such as personal mobile emergency response systems (mPERS), connected elevators, alarm systems , etc. The integrated power-saving GNSS receiver allows the use of GNSS positioning even when the cellular modem is turned off.
âThe LE910S1-ELG is a great option for migrating customers using legacy 2G and 3G modules in Latin America, especially where national LTE-M and NB-IoT coverage does not yet exist,â said Marco Stracuzzi , Product Marketing Manager, Telit. âOur all-in-one cellular and GNSS module covers all 4G and 2G LATAM bands, as well as consumer bands used in Europe and Asia, making it particularly suitable for high performance monitoring on intercontinental deployments. “
The LE910S1-ELG is currently being sampled and will be commercially available in the first quarter of 2022.
