Sequans Monarch LTE Platform Selected by Sercomm for IoT Tracker

Sercomm, a global manufacturer of telecom equipment and devices is using Sequan’s Monarch LTE Cat M1 Platform for a new IoT tracker that integrates LTE and GPS technologies in a highly compact design. The Sercomm tracker, named SavTrack, will be on display at Mobile World Congress Americas in San Francisco from September 12-14.

Sercomm SavTrack is a compact, GPS-equipped personal tracker that can be placed easily in a bag or a pocket. Featuring LTE Cat M1 connectivity by Sequans, SavTrack efficiently monitors the movements and locations of people, pets, vehicles, and objects 24/7. More than just tracking, SavTrack also provides enhanced human safety protection by providing an SOS button for emergencies. When the SOS button is pushed, the tracker instantly reports the user’s location so that necessary action can be taken immediately. SavTrack delivers excellent price/performance and is an ideal solution for applications including health monitoring, youth/senior safety, transportation, and pet tracking.

Sercomm’s SavTrack LTE tracker is based on Sequans’ Monarch LTE platform, the world’s first and most highly-optimized LTE-M (Cat M1) chip for IoT devices. Monarch integrates baseband, RF, power management and RAM in a single, tiny 6.5 x 8.5 mm chip and is purpose-built for narrowband IoT applications, including trackers, sensors, and wearables. Its advanced features include ultra low power consumption in active and sleep/idle modes, and unique RF filtering technology that enables, within a single hardware design and at no added cost, a true single, worldwide SKU with multi-band support for universal and flexible IoT implementation.
