Sequans Calliope 2 to be unveiled during the IT event

Must Read

Sequans Communications S.A. announced that its second-generation LTE Cat 1 chip platform, Calliope 2, will be unveiled at CES 2021. Designed to be cost-effective support of IoT applications, it enables VoLTE and a data rate transfer higher than 100 kilobits per second that cannot be supported by LTE-M or NB-IoT technologies.

Sequans Calliope 2 technology has enabled the widespread deployment of Cat 1 for IoT. These include:

  • Higher integration that has lowered the Cat 1 module cost closer to the level of LTE-M module cost closer to the level of LTE-M module cost.
  • Significantly improved power consumption, in both active and low power modes, lowering the power profile close to the LTE-M power profile, and thereby extending the battery life of Cat 1 IoT devices.

The soon launched technology is 5G-ready, and its user application software and interfaces are compatible with Sequans Monarch 2 LTE-M/NB-IoT platform.

Calliope 2 Feature Highlights:

  • 3GPP Release 15
  • Up to 10 Mbps DL, and 5 Mbps UL
  • Interface includes USB 2.0, 4xHS-UART, SPI, PCM/12S
  • Advanced low power features eDRX and PSM with rock bottom
  • Comprehensive VoLTE voice engine including HD-quality Voice (EVS)
  • Baseband, RF, power management, and memory integrated into one chip platform.
  • Compatible with Sequans Monarch 2 LTE-M/NB-IoT platform for easy migration among Cat 1, Cat M, Cat NB1/NB2
  • EAL5+ security for iSIM
  • Streaming audio

Sequans pioneered Cat 1 technology for IoT and has always recognized its value. We are the only cellular IoT chipmaker; with a strategic product roadmap for Cat 1, and we have designed our Calliope 2 platform to be scalable; and in sync with the sunsetting of 2G and 3G networks, thereby answering a key industry demand at just the right time. There are real and valuable opportunities in Cat 1 for IoT, complementing LTE-M/NB-IoT; and Calliope 2 is the ideal starting point.
