Skywire® Global LTE-M/NB-IoT Embedded Modem

The Skywire NL-SW-LTE-QBG95 embedded modem provides LTE-M (CAT M1) and NB-IoT (NB1, NB2) connectivity for global applications with fallback to 2G at lower power than the BG96 processor. It utilizes the Qualcomm 9205 chipset and Quectel BG95-M3 module. This embedded modem also includes an integrated GPS/GNSS radio. The NL-SW-LTE-QBG95 embedded modem is compatible with many of the world’s LTE-M and NB-IoT networks.

Skywire embedded modems dramatically reduce the cost, risks and timelines of IoT product development. With known-good RF engineering and fully validated software, Skywire allows you to focus on your application and not engineering cellular radios. Standardized connectivity gives you flexibility to update and alternate radios for new geographies, carriers and technologies. Further, our embedded modems are “End-Device Certified”, meaning your end-product will not need to go through the complex process of carrier certification. This is critical for the first release of your product and each iteration as you obtain market feedback. Skywire modems significantly reduce time-to-market and are ideal for product development through large-scale production. All Skywire modems are patented and backed by industry leading documentation and expert-level product support.
