Sequans Communications S.A. (NYSE: SQNS) today introduced the newest member of its StreamliteLTE™ family of chipset solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT). The Colibri LTE Platform comprises Sequans’ latest baseband and RF chips (SQN3221 and SQN3241), an integrated network and application CPU platform running Sequans’ carrier-proven LTE protocol stack, an IMS client, and a comprehensive software package for over-the-air device management and packet routing. Colibri has been optimized for the design of M2M and IoT modules and devices for numerous new applications.

“In developing Colibri, our goal was to pack it with great IoT features while making it so cost-effective that it would immediately solidify the business cases for adding LTE to numerous new M2M and IoT devices,” said Georges Karam, Sequans CEO. “I’m proud to say we’ve reached our goal and Colibri offers the best price/performance in the industry, enabling 4G LTE modules to approach 2G price points.”
Among Colibri’s many IoT features are its ultra low power consumption and very compact form factor, which are functions of wafer-level packaging for both for the baseband and RF chips. This gives Colibri unique flexibility as a basis for many different types of IoT and M2M modules for applications in home security, automotive, healthcare, wearables, utilities, and more. Also, Colibri’s integrated enhanced network and application CPU runs M2M and IoT applications, eliminating the need for -- and the cost and complexity of -- an external CPU.
Colibri LTE Platform Feature Highlights
- 3GPP Release 10, software upgradable to Release 11
- FDD and TDD, up to 20 MHz channels
- Throughput up to category 4 (150 Mbps DL / 50 Mbps UL)
- Integrated enhanced network and application CPU
- Wafer-level packaging
- Embedded IMS VoLTE client and digital voice interface
- Supports Linux, Android, ChromeOS, Windows, and MAC OS
- IoT friendly interfaces, including USB 2.0, SDIO 3.0 and high-speed UART
- Includes Sequans AIR™ interference cancelation technology for superior cell-edge performance
“As growth of the IoT explodes and LTE continues its rapid spread around the world, the demand for LTE-enabled M2M and IoT devices is reaching new heights as device makers realize that to be future proof, their M2M and IoT devices must be LTE-enabled,” said Karam. “With Colibri, we have made it simple, quick, and very affordable to add LTE connectivity to almost any device for any application.”
Sequans expects modules based on the Colibri platform to be available from various module manufacturers beginning in Q3.

Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...

Regulatory requirements exist to promote the controlled sharing of information, while protecting the privacy and/or security of the information. Regulations for each type of information have their own set of rules, policies, and guidelines. Cloud Service Providers (CSP) are faced with increasing demand for services at decreasing prices. Demonstrating and maintaining compliance with regulations is a nontrivial task and doing so against numerous sets of regulatory requirements can be daunting task...
