LTE Advanced Pro Cat 16 with 3G / 2G Fallback
Thales's Cinterion® PLPS9 IoT wireless module delivers Ultra high-performance LTE Advanced connectivity for demanding IoT applications such as industrial routers and gateways, digital signage, industrial computers and tablets.
This best-in-class IoT device enables sizzling data speeds of 1G bit/s download and 150 Mbit/s uplink plus seamless fallback to 3G and 2G networks.
It provides excellent coverage in both urban areas and regions where 4G is still emerging.
This IoT device is part of a broader range of IoT products offered by Thales.
Robust, Rugged IoT Design
Built for longevity and performance, the optimized, ultra-rugged HW design enables smooth migration from 2G to 3G through LTE Advanced.
It delivers reliability in extreme environments, temperatures and voltage conditions and is verified through extensive cycles of field tests.
In addition, a unique RF concept enables a minimum number of SKUs, which helps to simplify IoT solution design and logistics while lowering Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
High-Speed IoT Connectivity
The PLAS9 is offered in variants for North America (-X), EMEA and APAC (-W) delivering connectivity for LTE Category 16 with fallback to 3G and 2G when needed.
The module supports carrier aggregation.
In other words: Mobile Network Operators can combine two or more carriers into one data channel for enhanced data capacity. This feature improves peak user performance and optimized use of spectrum.
