Sequans New R&D Facility in Sophia Antipolis to Boost LTE Solutions Development

Sequans Communications has announced the opening of a new development site in Sophia Antipolis, on the Côte d’Azur, in the south of France. The new team currently includes ten engineers who will support Sequans’ core development of LTE semiconductor solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT).

By establishing this facility in Sophia Antipolis, where there is a vibrant community of software and embedded systems engineering talent, Sequans will be able to efficiently strengthen its development capabilities to meet the requirements of their growing list of customers in the worldwide market phenomenon known as the Internet of Things.

Sequans recently released its newest LTE for IoT chip, an LTE-M / NB-IoT chip called Monarch, based on the latest LTE standard and highly optimized for IoT. In less than one year, Monarch has gone from introduction, to operator certification, to deployment, and has already been designed into numerous LTE for IoT devices.

The new facility in the south of France is Sequans eleventh site among its worldwide locations. The new team will work closely with Sequans main R&D engineering team at the company’s Paris headquarters.
