Telit, a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT), has announced that AT&T has certified its FN980 5G module for use on its 5G nationwide network. Based on the new 3GPP Rel. 15 standard, the 5G module series enables bandwidth-intensive IoT applications, including high-definition (HD) surveillance video and digital signage, to take immediate advantage of AT&T's 5G network in the sub-6 GHz spectrum.
Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF System, the FN980 supports all key 3GPP Rel. 15 5G deployment scenarios, including non-standalone LTE-5G NR dual connectivity (EN-DC) and dynamic spectrum sharing between LTE and 5G. Featuring an industrial-grade design, the FN980 is ideal for mission-critical applications that require maximum reliability such as industrial routers and gateways, fixed wireless access, professional mobile high-resolution video broadcasting equipment and more.
Robert Boyanovsky, vice president, Mobility and IoT, AT&T said that as the buildout of our 5G network across the nation continues, certification of Telit's 5G sub-6 GHz modules will help enable new experiences and improved connectivity for Internet of Things devices and applications. The modules will help end users harness the full power of the IoT and 5G.
Gautam Sheoran, senior director, product management, Qualcomm Technologies said that the Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF System and our comprehensive modem-to-antenna solution is designed for global 5G rollouts with support for all major frequency bands and critical in driving AT&T's 5G efforts forward. He also said that by collaborating with an industry leader like Telit, Qualcomm Technologies can expand 5G IoT into new use cases for a wide range of industries, from education and healthcare to retail, entertainment, manufacturing and beyond.
Marco Contento, vice president of 5G technologies, Telit said that this is a significant milestone for their award-winning FN980 5G data card series. He further said that this certification not only advances their mission to provide OEMs, system integrators and end users the portfolio of solutions for leveraging AT&T's 5G network but also demonstrates their commitment to help OEMs bring their 5G-powered devices to market successfully and quickly.
The FN980 series has received global certification providing OEMs, system integrators and end users with additional, independent verification that their FN980-based devices will perform as expected on all major mobile operator networks worldwide.
