U‑blox offers certification of its dual-mode SARA‑R410M‑83B module for Australia on Telstra’s LTE‑M and NB-IoT cellular network. The module is ideal for a wide spectrum of IoT applications including as smart metering, asset and vehicle tracking, telematics, security systems and connected health.
With frequency bands 3, 5, 8, 20, 28, conformance to RED and certification for NCC, the device can also be employed in Europe and Taiwan.
Newly introduced NB-IoT features have been tested and approved by Telstra. Release Assistance Indicator provides the application with the option to end the connection as soon as the uplink message is sent.
“The ability to release the network connection quickly and reduce power consumption is critical for our customers requiring extended battery life, particularly in remote areas. Additionally, u-blox’s customised implementation of embedded secure MQTT protocol enables quick development of secure and reliable data transmission to AWS and MS Azure cloud platforms,” says Andrew Suttle, country manager, Australia and NZ.
