Sequans’ Monarch LTE-M Technology Certified for Use on Telstra

World’s leading LTE for IoT chip extends market reach

BARCELONA, Spain–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/search?q=%24SQNS&src=ctag” target=”_blank”gt;$SQNSlt;/agt; lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/lteforiot?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#lteforiotlt;/agt;–Sequans Communications (NYSE:SQNS) announced that Telstra, Australia’s
leading telecommunication service provider, has certified Sequans’
Monarch LTE technology for use on its 4G LTE network. Monarch is the
industry’s most highly-optimized LTE-M/NB-IoT chip, and Telstra is the
latest among leading operators who have certified Monarch and/or
Monarch-based modules for use on their LTE networks. Monarch is
currently being designed into IoT devices that will soon launch on
Telstra’s network.

“Certification by Telstra assures device and module makers that a device
has met Telstra’s strict performance, interoperability, and feature
requirements, and is approved to operate on Telstra’s network,” said
Georges Karam, Sequans CEO. “To achieve certification, Sequans
demonstrated robust operation of Monarch on Telstra’s LTE bands,
complied with Telstra’s power requirements, and met the ACMA RCF
regulatory requirements for Australia.”

Telstra certification marks another key milestone and an extension of
the market reach of Monarch, the world’s leading LTE-M chip, which is
now approved by leading operators in USA, Japan, Europe, and Australia.

“Sequans is strongly committed to perfecting the use of LTE for IoT
around the world, and has made great strides toward realizing this goal
as more and more operators recognize it as an ultra-efficient
connectivity solution for IoT applications,” said Karam.

Sequans’ Monarch
Platform is the world’s most highly optimized LTE-M/NB-IoT chip. It
provides full support for power saving mode (PSM) and extended
discontinuous reception (eDRX) to enable the long battery life needed by
many IoT use cases, and it provides the enhanced coverage modes that
extend coverage for deep-indoor and remote deployments. Monarch
comprises baseband, RF, power management, and RAM in a single package.
Monarch also supports advanced features such as programmable RF
filtering for global band support in a Single-SKU™, and proprietary
dynamic power management technology enabling rock bottom low power
consumption of 1 micro amp for long battery life.
