With the LM940, Telit’s is the carrier’s most advanced portfolio of certified IoT modules and data cards. The addition of the high-speed LM940 is an important step in the road to 5G.

“With the Telit LM940, Sprint’s enterprise customers now have an LTE Cat 11 option for bandwidth-intensive applications such as enterprise SD-WAN with LTE, remote-office connectivity, mass transit transportation and video surveillance,” said Manish Watwani, Telit executive vice president of global product management. “As the first in a series of high-speed products to be certified, the LM940 is the latest example of Telit’s role as a trusted supplier of industry-first solutions to both Sprint and its enterprise customers.”

The LM940 module boasts a power-efficient platform and is the ideal solution for commercial and enterprise applications in the network appliance and router industry, such as branch office connectivity, LTE failover, digital signage, kiosks, pop-up stores, vehicle routers, construction sites and more. The module includes Linux and Windows driver support. The product family also includes the LM960, the world’s first Gigabit LTE data card (Cat 18), fully compatible with the LM940.
