SIM7000A Becomes the First AT&T Certified CAT M Module in China and SIMCom Strengthens North American Market Layout
On December 20, SIMCom’s Module SIM7000A passed the AT&T certification successfully and became the first AT&T certified CAT M module in China. The certification indicates that the SIM7000A can operate stably on the most reliable wireless network in the North American market, and that SIMCom’s customers can use this module to meet their related business needs from now on.
SIM7000A is an SMT-packaged multi-frequency LTE-FDD(B2/B4/B12/B13) module that supports LTE CAT-M1 (eMTC). With the dimensions of 24*24*2.6mm and the weight of 3.0g, it makes its module package and AT command compatible with those of SIM900 and SIM800F, enabling customers’ terminal product designs to upgrade from 2G to CAT M smoothly. SIM7000A combines high performance, security and flexibility to provide ideal solutions for vertical applications of IoT and M2M, such as in-vehicle service, smart metering, asset tracking, remote monitoring, healthcare, mobile payment terminals and sharing economy. With Power Save Mode(PSM) and Extended Discontinuous Reception(eDRX), SIM7000A can extend battery life to 10 years.
Mr. Luo Xiaoyan, vice general manager of SIMCom’s R&D, said: “Cat M technology is the main force in the subsequent IoT, supporting mobility, voice and higher transmission rate, and applicable to a variety of IoT applications, including alarm systems, assets trackers, smart meters, smart city controllers, wearable devices and industrial sensors.
SIM7000A successfully passing the AT&T certification is a widely anticipated milestone event of SIMCom, which shows SIMCom’s determination and intensity to lay out the North American market! Those customers who are using SIMCom's existing 2G modules can quickly switch to the SIM7000A. SIMCom's service sites cover more than 180 countries around the world to assist customers in conducting AT&T testing efficiently and in deploying and launching CAT M products quickly. In the future, SIMCom will take root in the field of IoT more professionally, intensify the layout in the North America market, and provide customers with products to rapidly develop IoT applications. We will, as always, offer the best products and services to our customers!”
