Qualcomm Intros LTE Modems for IoT

Qualcomm introduced its latest LTE modems (the MDM9207-1 and MDM9206) designed for Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

The MDM9207-1 is purpose-built for IoT applications like smart metering, security, asset tracking, wearables, point-of-sale and industrial automation – many of which require extremely reliable and power-efficient connections to cloud services. It offers Category 1 LTE connectivity with power and throughput optimizations, and other customizable features.

The MDM9206 will allow device manufacturers to enable cost-optimized solutions for low data rate IoT applications more efficiently addressed by a narrowband modem in addition to providing enhancements for ultra-low power and extended range as part of Cat-M (eMTC) and narrowband IoT (NB-IOT).

Key customizable features for the MDM9207-1 include support for:

  • LTE Category 1 up to 10 Mbps downlink and 5 Mbps uplink speeds with LTE multimode or LTE Single mode capability and dual Rx or single Rx
  • Power Save Mode (PSM) enabling 10+ years battery life
  • Major cellular standards, including LTE FDD, LTE TDD, DC-HSPA, GSM and TD-SCDMA
  • Scalable software across chipset platforms
  • Advanced, built-in hardware and software security features
  • Integrated voice support for Circuit Switched Fall Back (CSFB) and VoLTE
  • Integrated Applications Processor with ARM Cortex A7 @ 1.2 GHz
  • Linux OS for application development
  • Integrated global positioning support for GPS, Beidou, Glonass, and Galileo
  • Small package at 28nm LP to allow for optimized IoT form factors
  • Pre-integrated support for Qualcomm VIVE™ Wi-Fi 1x1, 802.11ac featuring Qualcomm MU | EFX MU-MIMO technology and BT 4.1 BLE
  • Qualcomm RF360 Front End Solution

"Qualcomm Technologies continues to expand the capabilities of LTE to accelerate progress in IoT today with the MDM9207-1 and MDM9206," said Anthony Murray, senior vice president and general manager, IoE, Qualcomm Technologies International Ltd.  "These modems demonstrate our continued commitment to the expansion of existing LTE commercial device capability in addition to new standards-based Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technologies that will lead to global cellular solutions with longer range, lower power and lower complexity, such as LTE Cat-M (eMTC) and NB-IOT."
