Long life, high-speed data with LTE Cat.4

Offering IoT optimized speeds of 150 Mbit/s download and 50 Mbit/s uplink, the PLS83 IoT module is ideal for industrial IoT applications that require speed and optimal coverage, such as global tracking and tracing, industrial gateways, point of sales, and transportation solutions. These applications require high-speed data and the longevity and stability of LTE networks, plus continuous coverage in regions where a 4G connection is not present.

Delivering seamless compatibility with highly efficient Cinterion LTE Cat.1 IoT modules

The PLS83 is part of an agile suite of IoT modules that offer either LTE Cat.4 or LTE Cat.1 cellular connectivity, in both global and or regional variants. In other words, for each global and regional PLS83 variant, a compatible Cinterion PLS63 LTE Cat.1 module is available, offering MTC connectivity for applications that require greater efficiency versus high speed and bandwidth. The PLS83/63 IoT module suite offers 100% hardware and software compatibility. All Multi-Band LTE modules in the Cinterion® PLSx3 series offer seamless fallback based on regional network availability.

Feature-packed, cost optimized, and eSIM enabled

The Cinterion PLS83 module is backed by 25 years of industrial cellular module design experience, delivering a feature-packed solution that includes a comprehensive AT command set and embedded features such as IP connectivity, VoLTE, and GNSS. Our unrivalled expertise with eSIM technology supports the option to embed the eUICC, therefore easing logistics and manufacturing while optimizing total cost of ownership. Advanced security features include a Secure Boot and secure key storage.

Cinterion IoT Suite ensures a lifetime of reliability and security

To ensure your assets remain connected over their long lifespan, the PLS83, together with the Cinterion IoT Suite, delivers a robust and reliable lifecycle management solution with pre-installed keys for secure cloud enrolment, remote update and device management features.

Offered in the Cinterion Industrial Plus form factor, the PLS83 offers footprint compatibility with a range of IoT modules and a wealth of further technology families, from 2G to ultra high-speed LTE.
