Cavli Wireless, has partnered with GCT Semiconductor and licensed the chipsets, to manufacture and produce LPWAN, LTE, and 5G IoT modules in India.
This will be the first-ever initiative to kickstart the manufacturing of industry-grade LTE/LPWAN IoT modules in India. India is an emerging hub of IoT product development for the global market and an IoT module designed, developed, and manufactured in India is already welcoming news for Cavli’s existing customer base.
GCT Semiconductor, Inc. designs and develops innovative LTE chipset solutions for the 4G LTE, LPWAN, and 5G wireless communication industry.
A key highlight in this collaboration, LTE CAT M1/NB1/NB2 C42GM Smart IoT Module based on GCT GDM7243i, comes with an integrated eSIM, GNSS, CAN controller, and BLE-4.2, making it every asset tracking and automotive solution makers’ dream hardware. Furthermore, the C42GM smart IoT module is Sigfox compatible as well making it an attractive option for organizations focusing on hybrid connectivity solutions. A wide variety of LPWAN applications/use cases like trackers, wearables, smart utility meters, and other sensor-based solutions for smart city projects can be seamlessly powered with the eSIM integrated C42GM smart IoT module with global connectivity.
The ever-growing wireless connectivity industry now refueled by the added push for digitization efforts, in the wake of the pandemic, is setting the stage for India to emerge as a global electronic manufacturing hub for the developed markets. This partnership with GCT Semiconductor is positioning Cavli Wireless as a preferred global partner for many enterprise IoT projects where the market is demanding connectivity hardware products with a high level of integration.
Currently running pilots with customers around the globe, the first IoT module from this partnership – C42GM will start shipping out globally, on a mass production basis from Q1 2021.
