Flexible, Multi-Band LTE Cat.1 Platform for Global or Regional IoT Connectivity

The Thales Cinterion® PLS63-W offers a global approach to cost-optimized IoT connectivity, with 18 Band LTE Cat.1, Eight Band 3G HSPA/UMTS, and Quad-Band GSM for seamless coverage across multiple wireless networks. Alternatively, where a global solution is not required, a variety of regional variants with the latest network banding deliver targeted connectivity for North America, Europe and APAC, Latin America and Japan. iot module

Highly efficient, long life LTE Cat. 1

Offering IoT optimized speeds of 10 Mbit/s download and 5 Mbit/s uplink, the PLS63 IoT module is ideal for industrial Smart IoT applications such as vending, point of sale, transportation, and industrial automation. These applications require the longevity and stability of LTE networks along with continuous coverage in regions where a 4G connection is not present.

Delivering seamless compatibility with Cinterion LTE Cat. 4 IoT modules

The PLS63 is part of an agile suite of wireless modules including the Cinterion PLS83 that offers either LTE Cat.1 or LTE Cat.4 cellular IoT connectivity, in either global and/or regional variants. In other words, for each global and regional PLS63 variant, a compatible Cinterion PLS83 LTE Cat.4 module is available, offering additional bandwidth and speed along with 100% hardware and software compatibility. All Cinterion® PLSx3 series Multi-Band LTE modules provide seamless fall-back based on regional network availability.
