Murata and Skylo announced that they will be demonstrating the next generation of cellular and satellite services at Mobile World Congress (MWC), happening February 27 to March 3 in Barcelona, Spain (Hall 5, Stand 5C10). By combining Skylo’s non-terrestrial network (NTN) with Murata’s Type 1SC module, an advanced ultra-small low-power cellular IoT solution, the companies’ collaboration enables seamless, ubiquitous connectivity. This allows device manufacturers to connect devices such as wearables, sensors and trackers directly over satellite without requiring new hardware or specialized equipment.
Murata’s Type 1SC solution is the world’s smallest form factor LTE Cat M/NB-IoT module with global certification and satellite NTN. It supports GPS/GNSS, OpenMCU and Integrated SIM to support the applications that are moving the market forward, such as dual-mode cellular IoT. In addition to its unparalleled size, low power and cost-efficiency, the solution’s high level of integration cuts time to market and reduces customers’ development and deployment costs. Further, current Type 1SC module customers can adopt this new feature without the need to alter hardware.
