Deutsche Telekom has certified Telit’s FN980 sub-6 5G module for use on the operator’s 5G networks across Europe.

Designed for global use, the module is suitable for high-performance and bandwidth-intensive enterprise and industrial applications including fixed wireless access, enterprise routers and gateways, indoor and outdoor CPE, and professional broadcasting and surveillance.

The award-winning FN980 5G series has received global certification providing OEMs, system integrators and end users with verification that their FN980-based devices will perform as expected on all major mobile operator networks worldwide. In addition, the industrial-grade M.2 form factor provides a 5G migration path for end products already in the M.2 market with 3G and 4G systems.

European organisations also have a range of certified NB-IoT and LTE-M modules in Telit’s xE310, xE910 and xL865 families. The ME310, ME910 and ML865 have variants for regional European and global IoT applications such as smart metering, security, surveillance, point of sale, health monitoring, fleet management, asset tracking and wearable trackers, fitness and wellness devices.

“We work closely in partnership with Telit to secure interoperability and reduce time-to-market for our customers up-front,” said Uday Patil, head of devices at Deutsche Telekom IoT. “By certifying Telit’s innovative FN980 data card, we enable a growing number of customers to deploy the next generation of powerful IoT on our 5G and 4G networks.”

Marco Contento, vice president at Telit, added: “With these certifications, Telit offers the market one of the widest selections of multi-mode modules approved for use on Deutsche Telekom’s network. This highlights our longstanding partnership with Deutsche Telekom and commitment to provide IoT integrators and our customers the products they need for their IoT deployments.”
