The Cinterion® TX62 Wireless IoT Module accelerates the evolution of LTE to 5G by enabling LPWA connectivity for billions of new industrial applications via Cat. M and NB-IoT technologies. The TX62 IoT module introduces the new ‘Things’ footprint concept, especially developed for space-constrained applications which require a small size. With enhanced security and SIM, the platform is ideal for very small, battery-operated devices in remote locations, such as smart meters, asset trackers, healthcare apps, and wearables.
Multiple MTC Technologies for Global Connectivity:
- 3GPP Rel.14 Cat.M1, Cat.NB1, Cat.NB2
- Global LPWA from a single package
- Supports 450 MHz bands
The Cinterion® TX62 IoT Module delivers global LTE-M, NB-IoT (NB1 and NB2) connectivity from a single SKU and it is the first product to adopt the revolutionary “Things” footprint. The compact form factor has been engineered to facilitate the design of small, battery-operated LPWA cellular devices such as small payment terminals, connected sensors, track and trace solutions, meterings application, monitoring for smart homes, cities and agriculture.
The highly efficient Cinterion TX62 delivers global LPWAN LTE connectivity from a single SKU leveraging mature Rel. 14 second generation Cat. M1/NB1/NB2. The ultra-integrated IoT module’s unique architecture allows the flexibility to run applications with a host processor or inside the module itself using the integrated processor dedicated to customer application for onboard processing, which optimizes the size and cost of your solution. TX62 supports optimized 3GPP power modes PSM and eDRx revolutionizing design possibilities for battery-operated cellular devices. State of the art security features include trusted identities pre-integrated in the root of the module during manufacturing plus secure key storage and certificate handling to protect the device and data and enable trustful enrollment in cloud platforms. An optional integrated eSIM further simplifies manufacturing and logistics while providing flexibility in the field with easy remote provisioning and dynamic subscription updates. All this combined to Integrated GNSS support (GPS/Galileo/ GLONASS) provides a steady stream of timing and location information for precision positioning data anywhere in the world, making TX62 perfect also for small trackers devices.. What’s more, the TX62 is supported by Cinterion® IoT Suite Services, an optional platform that manages the connectivity, lifecycle and security of IoT solutions ensuring continuity and long life.
An embedded SIM strengthens security, authenticates devices, encrypts data and securely manages connections to cellular networks. It works seamlessly with Thales’s subscription management solution to maintain connectivity for the lifecycle of devices. All this simplifies integration, manufacturing and logistics and lowers TCO.
