Telit Drives Next Generation Connected Car with Conclusion of U.S. Network Certifications for Two LTE-Advanced Automotive-Grade Modules

Telit premieres new nested form factor to power connected car platforms

London, May 4, 2017 – Telit, a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced that two 3GPP Release 10 automotive grade modules, the LE940B6-NA and the LE920A4-NA have received U.S. carrier certification for use on nationwide LTE wireless networks. These secure smart modules are the first in their class of 300 Mbps LTE Cat 6 and 150 Mbps LTE Cat 4 automotive-grade solutions respectively to receive such certification. Both modules have been awarded several designs with global automotive OEMs and Tier one suppliers in the U.S. and markets worldwide. Mass production of the modules is expected to start in second half 2017 ramping up through 2018.

With advanced security features, the modules align with automakers’ vehicle roadmaps which include requirements for secure, high-speed mobile data that support next gen 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 both the LE920A4 and LE940B6. U.S. Carrier certification for these North American module variants is a critical milestone that the auto industry can leverage for immediate deployment in U.S. car models. We’re extremely proud of this achievement which further demonstrates our commitment to developing leading solutions aligned with progressive roadmaps that embrace advanced connected car and autonomous driving technologies.”

Telit technology in the LE920A4 and LE940B6 power the entire connected car platform with a design that supports current connectivity needs with the flexibility to integrate value-add and other telematics services down the road as wireless communications continue to evolve. Complex in-vehicle applications are inside a secure processing environment with a built-in 64-bit application processor, storage and memory. This flexible development environment allows customer application programs to run entirely and securely on the module itself using advanced anti-hacking capabilities.
