The new Qualcomm 9205 LTE modem is designed specifically for the new generations of IoT devices, aiming at a reduction in consumption and size and maximum support at the frequencies level.
The new Qualcomm 9205 LTE modem allows the monitoring of material assets, the creation of products for the healthcare sector, security systems, smart city systems, and wearable systems, and is therefore rather flexible and adaptable.
With the growing importance of the Internet of Things on a global level and with the approach of the actual 5G debut, the company does not want to be caught unprepared. This new solution will allow us to grasp even the smallest possibility of creating a market around this kind of products.
Among the innovations, in terms of industrial design, we find the greatest compactness, while maintaining the complete product. Compared to the MDM9206, Qualcomm 9205 LTE is 50% smaller and consumes 70% less allowing easier integration into the IoT.
The connectivity of this new solution includes eMTC / Cat-M1, NB2 (NB-IoT), 2G / E-GPRS, GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou and Galileo) with support at frequencies from 450 MHz up to 2.1 GHz and over 23 bands globally.
The integrated processor is a Cortex-A7 up to 800 MHz with support for ThreadX and AliOS Things RTOS without forgetting the security for boot, debug, storage and TEE. To give developers the opportunity to use the full potential of the Qualcomm 9205 LTE modem, there will be an LTE IoT SDK with support for the main cloud platforms.
The van (Qualcomm Europe VP of Product Management) said “the innovations included in the Qualcomm 9205 LTE modem are essential to support many of the 6 billion IoT devices that are expected to use low-power, large-area connectivity by 2026. IoT LTE is the basis on which 5G will help connect the massive IoT and we are making these technologies available to customers all over the world to create innovative solutions that can help transform industries and improve people’s lives.”
