PARIS, October 19, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Sequans Communications SA (NYSE: SQNS), a leading provider of cellular IoT chips and modules for massive and broadband IoT, announced that JACS Solutions Inc., a global solutions provider mobility solutions for the industrial and corporate Internet of Things (IoT), has developed a new semi-rugged 4G LTE tablet based on the Cassiopeia CBRS module from Sequans, to connect to private LTE networks deployed by companies, government organizations, educational institutions and industrial facilities.
CBRS (Citizen’s Broadband Radio Service) refers to a 3.5 GHz block of spectrum, allocated by the FCC for public use, that provides businesses with an efficient way to build their own private LTE networks over a shared spectrum base. Private LTE networks can be used by government entities needing secure access, by utilities needing to reach their oil and gas fields in rural areas, or by school districts wishing to connect their students and teachers to distance learning. The JACS TR0820 tablet can be used for each of these use cases, thanks to the LTE connectivity provided by Sequans’ Cassiopeia CBRS module, providing LTE CAT 4 or 6 data speed, the most cost effective level of throughput for these types of use cases. The module allows the JACS tablet to operate with very low power consumption, greatly extending the battery life of the tablet. Sequans and JACS have also collaborated on the development of specialized software running on the module’s application processor.
“We are proud to provide our cellular IoT module to JACS to connect their new semi-rugged tablet to private LTE networks compatible with CBRS,” said Bertrand debray, EVP, Broadband IoT, Sequans. “The increase in the number of CBRS network deployments has created a strong demand to connect more end user devices in more market sectors. JACS, which targets industrial and enterprise users, has designed a tablet designed to meet the unique challenges of such environments, and they put their experience to work for this new, well-designed device with powerful enterprise features. . “
Dr. Chang Gang Zhang, Vice President of Technology for JACS Solutions, oversaw JACS ‘entry into the private LTE market, including product certification by the OnGo Alliance — the industry’s leading private LTE consortium for providers solutions. According to Dr. Zhang, “Sequans is an expert in cellular IoT connectivity and 3.5 GHz solutions, making their Cassiopeia CBRS module the perfect connectivity solution for our new tablet. By using the Sequans module, we can deliver a very high value solution that brings reliability, security and intelligence to our business customers who need workstations that will perform reliably even in harsh environments, reducing downtime. and increasing productivity. “
The first generation JACS CBRS tablet will be on display at Sequans booth 1736, South Hall, at MWC Los Angeles, October 26-28, 2021.
