Telit IoT Module Certified for SK Telecom's LTE-M Network in Korea

Telit, a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT), announced that its ME310G1-WW module is certified for use on SK Telecom's LTE-M network. The module supports Power Class 3 (output power up to 23 dBm), which SK Telecom requires to maximize uplink coverage reliability and performance compliant with 3GPP Release 14. Featuring optimized power consumption and enhanced coverage for deployment, including deep inside buildings, the ME310G1-WW gives Korean enterprises, smart cities and other organizations a powerful new option for leveraging SK Telecom's LTE-M network.

Based on the Qualcomm 9205 LTE modem, the ME310G1-WW provides uplink speeds as fast as 1Mbps and downlinks up to 588Kbps, along with GNSS for precise location. At just 15x18 mm, the ME310G1-WW is the smallest 9205-based LTE-M module available in Korea, making it ideal for ultra-compact applications such as smart utility metering, industrial sensors and wearable medical devices. The ME310G1-WW has pin-to-pin compatibility with other members of Telit's xE310 family, enabling integrators to design a single PCB layout for any combination of 2G and 4G technologies. The ME310G1-WW supports global LTE-M bands and fallback to legacy 2G networks, making it ideal for IoT applications that need connectivity in Korea and throughout the rest of the world.

The module supports OneEdge, Telit's award-winning, a module-embedded software system with pre-packaged, secure, easy-to-use deployment and management tools. OneEdge dramatically simplifies design, deployment and management of IoT products and solutions. The module also supports Telit's AppZone, an embedded application development environment. This allows software developers to leverage the processing resources of the Telit modules to run their application, avoiding the addition of an external MCU and ultimately reducing the total cost of ownership of the solution.

Steven Kim, Telit Senior Sales Director for Korea feels the certification of the Telit ME310G1-WW gives Korea's IoT integrators, enterprise IT vendors and their customers a compact, high-performance solution for leveraging SK Telecom's LTE-M network.
