Module has proprietary LTE modem technology
Developed by u-blox, the UBX-R3 platform is based on the first Cat 1 LTE module, the LARA‑R3. The module is claimed to be the only cellular product available with a combination of a Cat 1 LTE modem and GNSS technology.
The module provides positioning information based on an on-board GNSS receiver. The single-mode LTE Cat 1 configuration meets increasing market demand for dedicated LTE products, says the company.
Designed for harsh environments, the module uses software-defined modem architecture for power minimisation, signaling optimisation and load and throughput control. System complexity has been adapted for LTE-only support and the device can be modified to meet specific customer requirements.
The platform supports end-to-end security features (secure firmware boot, secure transport layer, secure interfaces, secure APIs) within the module.
