Trackimo Selects Sequans Monarch SiP to Design IoT Tracker Devices

LTE for IoT chipmaker Sequans Communications S.A. (NYSE: SQNS) announced
that Trackimo, a leader in the GPS tracker market, has adopted Sequans’
Monarch SiP platform to design several types of IoT tracking devices
with LTE connectivity included. The operator-certified Monarch SiP is an
ultra small and thin, all-in-one connectivity solution that integrates
Sequans’ Monarch LTE-M/NB-IoT Platform with an RF front-end module in
the world’s smallest form factor.

“Sequans’ Monarch SiP is a powerful solution that simplifies adding LTE
connectivity to our IoT tracking devices,” said Shai Bar-Levi, CEO,
Trackimo. “LTE is essential for wide area tracking applications and the
very small form factor of Monarch SiP is ideal for adding it to devices
where space is constrained. Also, Monarch SiP’s single-SKU capability
gives us all the flexibility we need to design IoT trackers for any
market worldwide. We are using Monarch SiP to design many types of
trackers, including asset trackers, people and pet wearable trackers,
and more, for US and European markets.”

“Trackimo is a leader in the tracking space and has established itself
as a forward-thinking company with cutting edge tracker products,” said
Danny Kedar, VP of Sequans IoT Business Unit. “There are many tracker
types that need the wide area, low power capabilities of LTE such as
drones, fleets, people and pets, and Trackimo can get these LTE-enabled
trackers to market quickly thanks to Monarch SiP.”

The feature-rich Monarch-SiP
includes an integrated baseband, SRAM, RF transceiver, RF front-end,
passives and power management in a single 8.8 x 10.8 x 0.95 mm package
with proprietary RF shielding. It is compliant with 3GPP Release 13/14
LTE Advanced Pro specifications, including VoLTE support, is optimized
for LTE UE categories M1, NB1, and NB2, and operates across broad
frequency ranges (700 MHz to 2.1 GHz) to support global deployment and
roaming capability. Proprietary power management techniques offer
improved battery life. Sequans’ Single-SKU radio design enables Monarch
SiP to operate on any LTE frequency worldwide. Monarch SiP is operator-certified
and available now.

Sequans will be present at MWC
Shanghai, June 27-29. Sequans’ CEO, Georges Karam, will be speaking
at the GSMA Mobile
IoT Summit on June 28. To set up a private meeting, please contact
