NimbeLink Granted Landmark Patent Protecting Core Technology

Patent US 9497570 B2 is for “a space-efficient cellular modem device for machine-to-machine communications.”

Plymouth MN, December 22, 2016 – NimbeLink, a leading developer of embedded cellular modems for the Internet of Things (IoT), has been granted a United States patent protecting the company’s line of Skywire® embedded modems. Embodiments of the covered invention include “various space-efficient, embedded cellular modems for use in M2M applications.” The patent also covers “embedded cellular modem kits, which include an embedded cellular modem, baseboard, antenna, communications cable, and power supply” along with “algorithms for sending SMS messages using embedded cellular modem.”

“After being awarded the company’s first patent last year, this latest patent builds on the Skywire architecture.  We’re excited to have achieved this important patent.  It protects and validates the work we’re doing in this industry” said NimbeLink CTO Kurt Larson.

NimbeLink’s most recently designed embedded cellular modem is the Skywire Cat M1 modem, which uses significantly less power than previously available modems and costs less to operate. Like all modems in the Skywire family, Skywire Cat M1 modems are designed for easy integration into cellular-enabled products. Skywire modems are the smallest embedded modems in the industry, use an industry standard footprint, and are end-device-certified, eliminating the need to struggle through the slow, costly process of testing and certification for use on the cellular network.

NimbeLink is here to help with an end-device-certified, low-power connectivity solution along with full documentation and an M1 development Kit (Skywire M1DK). With the imminent availability of Verizon’s Cat M1 network, tough, reliable Skywire Cat M1 cellular modems are the easiest way to speed cellular-enabled IoT and M2M products to market.

For more information on the products and tools companies need to be first to market with Skywire Cat M1 modems, call 612-285-3433.
