Via Satellite: Qualcomm Goes Further into the Satellite Arena With New IoT Modems

Qualcomm Technologies, one of the biggest names in the telecoms world, is releasing two new modem chipsets with satellite capability, the company announced June 22.

The two modems: the Qualcomm 212S modem and the Qualcomm 9205S modem will power off-grid industrial use cases that require standalone non-terrestrial network (NTN) connectivity or hybrid connectivity alongside terrestrial networks, and aims to allow IoT enterprises, developers, ODMs, and OEMs to harness real-time information and insights to manage business projects.

These new modems are launched in collaboration with NTN service provider Skylo, which will deliver satellite connectivity through the Qualcomm Aware Platform using its network of satellite operators.

The Qualcomm 212S Modem is the company’s first IoT-NTN-only modem that supports the 3GPP Release 17 standards for satellite communications. It can enable stationary IoT devices to use satellite communication for off-grid connectivity.

Skylo is thrilled to partner with Qualcomm. View Via Satellite's full article here. View the press release related to this article here.
