Telit module earns AT&T LTE Cat 4 certification
Telit, a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT), announced that its LE920A4-NA LTE Cat 4 module has received AT&T* certification for use on the carrier's North American LTE wireless networks. The smart module delivers voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) and 150 Mbps Cat 4 automotive-grade performance.
With advanced security features, the LE920A4 is designed to deliver OEMs and tier one automotive system integrators flexibility to meet requirements of vehicle roadmaps for secure, high-speed mobile data with support for next gen applications such as advanced diagnostics, infotainment, and remote software updates.
"Automobile manufacturers demand best-in-class solutions enabling world-class connected car innovation with robust security features that the LE920A4 delivers," said Yossi Moscovitz, CEO of Telit Automotive Solutions. "AT&T's approval for the North American module variant is a critical milestone that the auto industry can leverage for immediate deployment in U.S. car models. Telit remains committed to developing solutions aligned with progressive roadmaps that embrace advanced connected car and autonomous driving technologies."
Telit technology in the LE920A4 powers a connected car platform with a design intended to support current connectivity needs with the flexibility to integrate future value-add and other telematics services as wireless communications evolve. In-vehicle applications are inside a secure processing environment with a built-in application processor, storage, and memory. This flexible development environment allows customer application programs to run entirely and securely on the module itself using anti-hacking capabilities.
Features of the LE920A4 include:
Global coverage: Series to include three multi-band, multi-mode, variants with integrated world-covering GNSS functionality, optimized for automobile manufacturers to deploy connected car solutions for the top automotive markets.
Advanced security addresses industry demands: Features include secure boot, secure storage, unique identifiers, random number generation, and cryptographic algorithms.
Multi-radio access technology for exceptional coverage: LTE high-speed data secured with 3G/2G fallback delivers a combination of voice and data connection technologies always-on communications, particularly in life-critical situations.
Safety-first: Supports regulatory and safety standards, and it is voice over LTE-ready (VoLTE) with circuit-switch fallback (CSFB) to 3G or 2G aligned with regional requirements.
Design-once and select the module with the exact feature set for each market and vehicle line: The LE920A4 34x40 mm LGA form factor nests with the new LE940B6 Telit xE940 automotive module family, offering the OEM or tier one integrator, flexibility to address economic, feature, and regional requirements with a single device design.
Automotive-grade: The device is designed for the rigors of automotive use, including excellent thermal characteristics for effective heat dissipation with an operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C.
