Sequans NEKTAR-B Evaluation Kit covers all the cellular IoT worldwide bands by embedding the TRIO mXTEND™ antenna component

Sequans Communications have launched the NEKTAR-B Evaluation Kit during the CES Event this week. NEKTAR-B is a prototyping platform to enable worldwide IoT cellular connectivity.

The new NEKTAR-B covers all the cellular IoT worldwide bands by embedding the TRIO mXTEND™ antenna component and the Monarch 2 GM02S LTE Cat M1/NB1/NB2 module. Using a single embedded antenna component this platform enables worldwide connectivity from 617 MHz up to 2200 MHz.

Sequans and Fractus Antennas aim to make IoT design simpler by giving the customer a ready to use prototype that can become the final product without needing to change the antenna component. The wireless designer only needs to adjust a matching network that shapes the frequency response of any wireless platform; therefore, the antenna component remains the same regardless of the size or form factor.

The NEKTAR-B Kit with embedded Virtual Antenna® is ready and you can find all the information in this new application noteWorldwide Cellular connectivity Evaluation Kit with embedded antenna.
