Gemalto Offers Audio Services Over LTE With World’s First VoLTE Cat. 1 Module
SANTA CLARA, May 9 – Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security, is revolutionizing Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity by bringing high-quality voice capabilities over LTE to industrial applications using single-mode LTE Cat.1.
At its IoT World pre-event in Santa Clara, the company is demonstrating its world-first Cinterion(R) Voice over LTE (VoLTE) Category 1 (Cat.1) module enabling the combination of simultaneous voice and data capabilities using LTE. It is ideal for solutions migrating to LTE that want to keep the flexibility of cost-effective audio capabilities.
This includes security and alarm systems, mHealth monitoring and smart home and building applications. Being the most complete Machine Type Communication standard in service on the market today, this module joins Gemalto’s growing family of LTE Cat. 1 modules offering the reliability, longevity and power efficiency of 4G.
Delivering simplified end user control and voice capabilities, the solution benefits from greater cost efficiency and improved connection speeds compared with traditional VoIP services. Andrew Brown, Executive Director – Enterprise and IoT Research at Strategy Analytics said the integration of voice into industrial IoT applications offers a versatile method for optimizing human interaction and control in IoT solutions.
In the meanwhile, he also said Gemalto’s Cinterion VoLTE Cat.1 solution is well positioned to provide developers, device makers and end users alike with a more flexible and cost effective experience than traditional interaction practices such as data input and touch screens.
“With the sunset of 2G and 3G networks on the horizon, the industry is quickly transitioning to LTE to ensure longevity of IoT technology investments. VoLTE is thus expected to become the standard of choice for enabling power efficient IoT voice capabilities,” said Axel Hansmann, Vice President Portfolio and Strategy for M2M at Gemalto.
