- Fibocom’s latest chipset promotes faster and secure communication between IoT devices
- Can support different frequency bands oftelecom operators in Asia, Europe and Latin America
Fibocom, a provider of cellular embedded wireless module solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), has announced the launch of the LTE Cat 1 wireless module integrated with blockchain technology.
The cellular wireless module is an essential element in the IoT physical structure, as it enables devices to be connected, so that data from those IoT devices enabled by cellular modules with wireless communication ability, can be collected in real-time. Based on UNISOC 8910DM LTE Cat 1 bis chipset and Aitos’s BoAT (Blockchain of AI Things) framework, Fibocom’s L610 LTE Cat 1 cellular module innovatively combines IoT and blockchain, which is essentially valuable to the IoT industry in terms of scalability and security.
Faster wireless speeds
The L610 enables wireless communication at a speed of 10Mbps, low latency of less than 100ms and a mobility rate of 100Km/H. That is very exciting, considering that the global operators are gradually closing 2/3G networks before 2025.
All this makes the Fibocom L610 LTE Cat 1 module a perfect choice for IoT application requiring medium communication speed. More than that, by innovatively integrating Aitos’s BoAT blockchain SDK at the application layer, L610 affords such blockchain capabilities as follows:
- Access control, ensuring that only stakeholders access data
- Security, encrypting every transaction
- Transparency, making the entire transaction ledger visible to all participants
“Fibocom L610 is an industry first. On the IoT side, it is an affordable, high-performance 4G wireless module suitable for all medium-speed IoT applications. On the other hand, L610 is block-chain technology-enabled, which aims to protect and bring out the full potential of the IoT data. The combination of blockchain and IoT can offer significant benefits to industrial applications,” said Liu Sunzhi, business director at Fibocom
Fibocom L610 is now at the stage of mass production and is globally targeting different overseas versions supporting frequency bands of mainstream telecom operators in Asia, Europe and Latin America.
