Product Description

The ML865C1 is the Category M1/NB1 evolution in the widely deployed Telit xL865 product family. Specified in the Release 13 of the 3GPP standard, LTE Cat M1/NB1 is specifically tailored for IoT applications, offering optimized power consumption and enhanced coverage. In addition, with its square 24.4 x 24.4 mm VQFN footprint, the ML865C1 is designed for size sensitive applications.


This next generation of products supports the new features specified by 3GPP to boost IoT applications, such as the Power Saving Mode (PSM) and the extended Discontinuous Reception (eDRX), which allow the devices to wake up periodically to deliver only very small amounts of data to the network and then go back to sleep for most of the time, thus allowing longer battery operation. Enhanced coverage, with up to +15dB/+20dB in maximum coupling loss (MCL) com-pared to the other cellular technologies, is also one of the key benefits of this new LTE flavour. LTE Cat M1/NB1 devices are therefore optimized in cost, size and power consumption compared to higher UE categories. These advantages make the ML865C1 the perfect platform to enable a quick implementation of LTE technology in IoT/ M2M where low cost and low power are more relevant than high speed.


The ML865C1 helps increase the addressable market for LTE technology to include a broad range of new applications and use cases best served with lower maximum data rate, ultra-low power, reduced complexity and cost. Some examples are asset trackers, smart metering, smart parking, smart agri-culture, waste collection, industrial sensors, healthcare monitors, home automation, and many more low data rate IoT devices. The ML865C1 is offered in different bands configurations for deployment in Europe and North America. It is highly recommended for new designs, but also in particular as a migration path for existing GPRS devices, both new and updated designs benefit from a significant extension in life-cycle with LTE Cat M1/NB1.
