Fibocom L610 MC610 series

Fibocom CAT-1 (MC116) and CAT-1bis (L610/MC610) modules

LTE CAT 1 and CAT 1bis modules have become one of the main options for wireless connectivity for low and medium speed IoT applications following the phasing out of 2G and 3G networks.

Supplier: Fibocom

Technology type: Cellular Modules

Fibocom LTE Cat 1 and Cat 1bis and modules are designed for medium-rate IoT connections, covering the network frequency bands of major operators in Asia, Europe and Latin America, formed as both LCC+LGA and MiniPCIe packages. The module is an all-in-one solution that provides excellent, reliable and secure coverage; while also delivering cost advantages that 5G communication cannot guarantee today. In the LTE network, a Cat 1bis device is treated like a Cat 1 device with one key difference: Cat 1bis requires a single receive (Rx) antenna instead of the two antennas used in Cat 1. There is no dedicated bandwidth allocated for Cat 1bis devices; they coexist with regular LTE Cat 1, Cat 4, and smartphones on the same network and spectrum.
