HL7900, a new Sierra Wireless 5G LPWA module featuring the Sony Altair ALT1350 Chipset.
Sierra Wireless recently introduced its latest HL Series LPWA module, the HL7900, with focus on low power requirements and support for 3GPP’s latest 5G standards. This new module features the Altair ALT1350 chipset from Sony, and claims
to be the first cellular chipset to support unlicensed spectrum communications protocols, as well as satellite connectivity, enabling hybrid connectivity and advanced architecture and setting a new bar in ultra-low power consumption. Compared to current generation modules, the optimised standby mode (eDRX)can reduce power consumption by up to 80% for some use cases, increasing expected battery lifetime by a factor of 4.
The HL7900 LPWA further extends the existing HL78 LPWA module family by offering the best available battery life, enhanced security and sub-GHz and 2.4GHz low power protocol integrated radios, providing a selection of connectivity options for a flexible customer offering and reduced cost. It supports 3GPP Releases 15, 16 and 17 for LTE-M/NB-IoT.
