Sequans Monarch Go Certified LTE IoT Category M1 Modems


Sequans Monarch Go Certified LTE IoT Category M1 Modems, connected by Verizon, are comprehensive modem components offering a short route to market and a low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) to develop cellular-IoT connected devices. The Monarch Go Modems avoid costly lab testing while improving time-to-market thanks to a reduced effort for board design. These modems remove the need to design and tune a cellular antenna as it embeds an optimized LTE antenna, saving months of design effort and lab testing. The plug-and-go Monarch Go Modems feature a pre-installed ThingSpace IoT SIM and a default data plan.

The mechanical integration of the Monarch Go LTE-M modem component into IoT devices is extremely simple, requiring only two screws, a single low-profile board-to-board connector, and no soldering. Monarch Go includes an industry-standard UART interface, a set of AT commands, and examples for connecting your device application MCU controller.
