AT&T introduced a new family of LTE modules for Internet of Things (IoT) applications and optimized for battery life.
AT&T worked with Wistron NeWeb Corp. (WNC), a module and device manufacturer. The modules are expected to become available from WNC at prices planned as low as $14.99 each, plus applicable taxes, starting in the second quarter. Samples will be available for testing in the first quarter.
“Businesses depend on IoT solutions for gathering real-time information on assets across the world,” said Chris Penrose, senior vice president, Internet of Things, AT&T Mobility. “We’re pleased to be able to facilitate the availability of cost-effective modules so our customers can deploy IoT solutions over the AT&T 4G LTE network. The new LTE modules help the battery life of IoT devices last longer so businesses can better serve their customers.”
