AT&T Approves Altair's ALT1210 LTE-M Chipset
on IoT Network
November 28, 2017
The ALT1210 LTE-M chipset has successfully completed AT&T's ADAPT
chipset validation process. The ADAPT validation improves time-to-market
and reduces the cost associated with the introduction of new Internet of
Things (IoT) devices.
Building upon the first live network trial of LTE-M with AT&T, this
chipset validation and commercial availability furthers Altair's
commitment to AT&T and broadens the device and module partner ecosystem
supporting LTE-M deployments.
"LTE-M is essential to carriers' cellular IoT strategies," said Eran
Eshed, VP of WW Sales and Marketing at Altair Semiconductor. "Being able
to offer pre-certified chipsets and modules will significantly help
vendors bring products to market quickly and cost-effectively. Our LTE-M
collaboration with AT&T extends the existing and strategic CAT-1
The ALT1210 is an LTE-M IoT chipset with extremely low power
consumption, and is software upgradeable to single antenna LTE CAT-1.
ALT1210 is highly integrated with an on-chip PMU, DDR memory and a
low-power MCU subsystem with a robust security framework for
customer-developed applications, enabling designs with just a few
ALT1210 is ideal for a variety of IoT applications such as trackers,
wearable devices, sensors and numerous other industrial and consumer IoT
devices. This highly integrated LTE-M solution is available today in
certified modules from various module and device vendors.
"LTE-M has the potential to connect more devices and applications than
anything before. When you introduce a new technology like LTE-M, it's
very important to bring together an ecosystem of network providers,
module providers and chipset providers. Having Altair's ALT1210 LTE-M
chipset certified on AT&T's network will help accelerate the promise of
LTE-M," said Cameron Coursey, vice president, Internet of Things
