iBASIS connectivity now available on Sequans Monarch 2 GM02S EVK
Leverages eSIM advanced technology to select the optimized cellular network
iBASIS, the leading provider of communications solutions for operators and digital players worldwide, and Sequans Communications S.A., a leading developer and provider of 5G/4G chips and modules, today announced that iBASIS Global Access for Things is now available in its Monarch 2 GM02S NEKTAR development Kit (EVK).
Through the collaboration, Sequans’ customers will be able to immediately connect their devices and select mobile networks offering Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) technologies leveraging iBASIS global reach.
Monarch 2 GM02S NEKTAR EVK can be offered with the iBASIS Global Access for Things to enable cellular IoT access (LTE-M, and NB-IoT) worldwide, leveraging the iBASIS single global, remotely programmable GSMA-standard eSIM/eUICC technology and instant connectivity. The iBASIS eSIM allows developers to quickly get their development kit connected to a cellular network almost anywhere in the world. The open eSIM technology includes Mobile Network Selection Logic, multi-operator profiles, and localized Packet Gateways that are used to create tailored connectivity plans for each specific IoT application.
Monarch 2 GM02S module is based on Sequans’ second-generation Monarch 2 LTE-M/NB-IoT chip, which is designed and optimized for massive IoT. It features industry-leading low power consumption, a GSMA-compliant EAL5+ secure enclave for iSIM, and global deployment capability. The module is delivered with a full-featured EVK: Monarch 2 GM02S NEKTAR EVK.
“We are pleased to collaborate with iBASIS and have their powerful eSIM connectivity enabled on our Monarch family modules,” said Didier Dutronc, EVP of Sequans’ massive IoT business unit. “iBASIS enables universal connectivity and innovative IoT solutions to deploy worldwide.”
“We are delighted to partner with Sequans on the latest and advanced low power consumption module with forward-looking security features for LTE-M and NB-IoT with our eSIM technology,” adds Nicolas Barret, Managing Director, iBASIS.
“We are thrilled to work together to respond to the exploding demand for global connectivity from massive and critical IoT applications such as transportation, trackers, and smart buildings.”
SAMEA-Innovation, a French start-up, is leveraging the new collaboration with Sequans and iBASIS: its wireless sensors are designed to optimize energy consumption and monitor air quality. SAMEA-Innovation is now integrating Sequans Monarch module and iBASIS cellular connectivity. A live demo of the connected sensor SENSORIIS® will be demonstrated at the Salon IoT-MtoM in Paris, October 5-6, Stand# I19.
