London, Detroit, Mich., June 8, 2017 – Telit, a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced that the LE940B6-NA LTE Cat 6 module has received AT&T* certification for use on the carrier’s North American LTE wireless networks. The smart module is the first of its class of 300 Mbps Cat 6 automotive-grade solutions certified by AT&T.
With advanced security features, the LE940B6 aligns with automakers’ vehicle roadmaps which include requirements for secure, high-speed mobile data that support next generation applications such as advanced diagnostics, infotainment and remote software updates.
“The automotive industry is continuously raising the bar on internet connection speeds to the car,” said Yossi Moscovitz, CEO of Telit Automotive Solutions. “Along with higher speeds, there are increasing requirements for security, quality and environmental performance which Telit has achieved with the LE940B6. With certification of the North American LTE-Advanced LE940B6-NA module variant, auto makers can immediately start delivering car models in the United States with these new modules.”
The LE940B6 powers the entire connected car platform, supporting current needs while including advanced features that enable future integration of up-coming value-added, telematics and managed services. The module can run in-vehicle applications inside a secure processing environment from the built-in 64-bit application processor, storage and memory. Automotive application programs can run entirely and securely on the module itself protected by advanced cyber-security capabilities.
