NimbeLink and Sierra Wireless has joined GetWireless in that company’s booth at the CTIA Super Mobility 2016 to present the new Skywire Cat 4 celluembedded modem. This high-speed modem is available in versions for both Verizon and AT&T cellular networks and supports download speeds of up to 150 Mbps. The new modem is based on the Sierra Wireless AirPrime HL7588 cellular module and will be available in certified versions for both Verizon and AT&T cellular networks. The two versions utilize the same hardware and differ only in firmware. In addition to its higher bandwidth, the LTE Cat 4 modem features low latency, useful in many applications, and the long product life assured by rollout on the LTE network.

Use of the cutting-edge Sierra Wireless module allows firmware in the Skywire Cat 4 modems to be “flashed” for over-the-air updates via Sierra Wireless AirVantage IoT Platform, ensuring that the modems and the products that use them can be kept up-to-date.

Like all members of the Skywire modem family, the Cat 4 modem features Skywire’s smallest-in-the-industry size, share the Skywire embedded modem line’s XBee footprint and are supported with full documentation, development kits, and microprocessor capes and adapters.

Created by award-winning developers, NimbeLink’s cellular modems are the easiest way to speed cellular-enabled IoT and M2M products to market. Available in both embedded and external Ethernet and serial link formats, Skywire modems are the economical choice for global cellular connectivity.

“We are excited to be the strategic partner and sales channel for the new NimbeLink Skywire CAT 4. This product adds to the strong portfolio we sell to customers today, enabling them to get to market faster,” said Bryan Rasmussen, COO of GetWireless.
