Industrial IoT is experiencing a new surge of growth and popularity with the boom and use of new NB-IoT. One of the biggest sectors, that drives this growth forward are Smart Energy, Smart Cities and Smart Home. It’s here, where companies come up with plethora of new solutions using this technology. A recent report from Custom Market Insights predicts CAGR growth of NB-IoT to up to 90% between now and year 2025. Much of this growth is cause by the companies that migrate to NB-IoT straight from their 2G solutions.
Gemalto’s new ENS22 comes just in time for this massive growth. ENS22 is the first module on the market, strictly built on NB-IoT and thus using all of its benefits. For example, the module is capable of using the connectivity with the extreme power efficiency, extended coverage range and advanced security features providing steadfast reliability for data solutions. The module offers built-in internet services, protected by enhanced security concept. Delivering data speeds of 27 Kbit/s downlink and 63 Kbit/s uplink, the ENS22 module is ideal for stationary IoT applications that send data only at intermittent intervals such as metering and smart city applications like smart parking lots, air quality sensors and more...
Other advantages are for example highly efficient battery power management, that can boost the battery’s life to up to 15 years or the incremental FOTA technology, which allows firmware update over the air. This update, compared to the other types, downloads only the changes since the last version and thus saving power and data.
Last, but not least advantage is LGA footprint, which is same as other Cinterion modules. It is possible then to implement the module into already existing solutions by simply swapping the old module for the new one.
