Altair said it will present Altair-powered IoT modules and devices with partners at MWC in Barcelona, including, Sierra Wireless, Sercomm, Deutsche Telekom and Truphone. Among the showcased products is a new Altair-enabled “smart ring with Panic Button” from Nimb. The mobile IoT (LTE-M/NB-IoT) connected ring features a highly discreet built-in panic button that can be easily triggered in case of emergency. The ring is powered by Sierra’s AirPrime HL7800 LPWA module, which includes Altair’s ALT1250 Cat-M1/NB-IoT chipset. It also benefits from the highly integrated GNSS positioning capabilities of that same chip.
Sercomm will showcase a number of new tracker devices, targeted for consumer and asset tracking scenarios. These devices are based on Sercomm’s TPM540 module, which incorporates Altair’s ALT1250 Cat-M1/NB-IoT chipset. They will feature a range of additional functionalities, including GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Low Energy and optional sensors.
Truphone will demonstrate the world’s first fully GSMA-compliant embedded SIM (eSIM) functionality on an IoT module.
Truphone’s bootstrap connectivity technology enables the module to connect out-of-the-box to Low-Power Wide-Area networks in multiple countries. This, along with its GSMA-accredited M2M remote SIM provisioning system, allows the device to fetch a SIM profile from mobile operators for ongoing local connectivity.
The demo will be performed with STMicroelectronics’ Wafer Level Chip Scale Package (WLCSP) eSIM on Murata’s 1SE Cat-M1/NB-IoT module, incorporating the STM32L4 ultra-low powered MCU.
Deutsche Telekom will launch its IoT Solution Optimizer, what it calls the world’s most advanced IoT products shelf designed to reduce the associated costs and risks of introducing new IoT products.
Altair will also participate in the GSMA’s eSIM Seminar MWC19: From Specification to Live Products, exploring the challenges in deploying eSIM and bringing devices to market.
