Sequans Communications S.A. (NYSE: SQNS) today introduced the newest
member of its StreamliteLTE™ family of chipset solutions for the
Internet of Things (IoT). The Colibri LTE Platform comprises Sequans'
latest baseband and RF chips (SQN3221 and SQN3241), an integrated
network and application CPU platform running Sequans' carrier-proven LTE
protocol stack, an IMS client, and a comprehensive software package for
over-the-air device management and packet routing. Colibri has been

"In developing Colibri, our goal was to pack it with great IoT features
while making it so cost-effective that it would immediately solidify the
business cases for adding LTE to numerous new M2M and IoT devices," said
Georges Karam, Sequans CEO. "I'm proud to say we've reached our goal and
Colibri offers the best price/performance in the industry, enabling 4G
LTE modules to approach 2G price points."
Among Colibri's many IoT features are its ultra low power consumption
and very compact form factor, which are functions of wafer-level
packaging for both for the baseband and RF chips. This gives Colibri
unique flexibility as a basis for many different types of IoT and M2M
modules for applications in home security, automotive, healthcare,
wearables, utilities, and more. Also, Colibri's integrated enhanced
network and application CPU runs M2M and IoT applications, eliminating
the need for -- and the cost andcomplexity of -- an external CPU.
Colibri LTE Platform Feature Highlights
"As growth of the IoT explodes and LTE continues its rapid spread around
the world, the demand for LTE-enabled M2M and IoT devices is reaching
new heights as device makers realize that to be future proof, their M2M
and IoT devices must be LTE-enabled," said Karam. "With Colibri, we have
made it simple, quick, and very affordable to add LTE connectivity to
almost any device for any application."
Sequans expects modules based on the Colibri platform to be available
from various module manufacturers beginning in Q3.
