Telit, a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT), has announced that VAIO selected its LTE Category 9 (Cat 9) LN940 mobile data card from the LN940x family to enable reliable, secure LTE-Advanced connectivity in the manufacturer´s popular S series of notebooks targeted for mobile professionals, the company said.
With Telit´s LN940, VAIO will unveil the industry´s first laptops and notebooks delivering Cat 9 mobile broadband download speeds of up to 450 Mbps. Beginning late September of 2017, the Telit-enabled VAIO S series (S11 and S13) will be available in Japan where the LN940 is certified with top mobile network operators. Global deployment and other certifications are planned for 2018.
The challenge to manage multiple types of mobile computing equipment to accomodate an increasingly mobile global workforce pushes enterprises to adjust their operations. With the single-SKU LN940 supporting 24 LTE bands and 3G fallback, device manufacturers can provide an effective solution for international business travel across all geographies, while simplifying their own logistics, manufacturing, and inventory management.
Ideal for mobile computing, networking, and industrial IoT platforms that command an ultra-thin footprint with low power consumption for extended battery use, the LN94x family is a 42mm M.2 form factor with integrated satellite positioning functionality supporting GPS, GLONASS and Beidou. The LN94x data card series includes variants delivering LTE-Advanced high-speed data in Categories 6, 9, and 11 supporting carrier aggregation for the fastest mobile data performance possible.
