Sequans Sets up New R&D Center in Israel to Accelerate 5G Product Development

Sequans Communications, a developer and provider of IoT and 4G/5G modules, has announced the expansion of its research and development resources in Israel with the opening of a new design center for the purpose of accelerating 5G product development. The new team is mainly focused on the development of Sequans’ new 5G broadband and critical IoT products that will complement its existing massive IoT products, including the company’s flagship Monarch and Calliope platforms. 

Sequans has been involved in the development of 5G technology for many years and has continually invested in 5G R&D through its involvement in research partnerships with industry visionaries and through its membership in the 5G Public-Private Partnership (5G-PPP) since 2013. The expanded R&D center will allow Sequans to strengthen its leadership position in 5G and complete its comprehensive product portfolio addressing the three primary 5G IoT market segments-broadband, critical, and massive IoT.

Sequans’ new R&D center in Israel has been established to accelerate its ongoing 5G development and is a reflection of the company’s commitment to keeping its IoT products at the leading edge with best-in-class performance and lowest cost. The 5G products Sequans is developing for production include its 5G-compliant Monarch 2 LTE-M/NB-IoT chip announced in 2019 that will address the massive IoT market and the coming new Taurus 5G chip that will address the broadband and critical IoT markets.
