LTE CAT M1/CAT 1: Ideal Replacement for the Aging 3G/2G

3G is going away soon. Verizon Wireless has stopped activating any new CDMA devices and plans to sunset its CDMA 1X network (1X/EVDO, 2G/3G) on December 31, 2019. Featuring better technical features than 2G/3G, as well as low cost and low power consumption, the FB02 CAT M1 and FB23 CAT 1 pre-certified modem provides an easy path for LTE migration.


● LTE CAT 1: 10 Mbit/s Downlink and 5Mbit/s uplink, ideal for M2M/IoT

● Lower latency, better performance in various applications

● Low power, extended battery life

● Future proof, easy migration
