Multi-Tech Releases Dragonfly Embedded Modem

July 13, 2020 Perry Cohen

Multi-Tech Systems announced the release of its Dragonfly 4G-LTE Cat 4 global capable embedded cellular modem.

Its purpose is to address global IoT deployments by supporting 19 LTE bands (4G Cat 4), 7 WCDMA bands (3G HSPA+), 4 GSM bands (2G EGPRS), and includes an integrated GNSS receiver.

"With more than 60 different LTE bands in use around the world, global deployments to date have required managing several distinct radio devices for different regions, even when the finished product is otherwise the same worldwide," said senior product manager at Multi-Tech Rick Bailey, in a press release. "By ensuring this device communicates with at least one LTE band in every country, our customers can streamline their supply chain, manufacturing and logistics with a single embedded modem for the whole world."

The Dragonfly family is fully certified and MNO approved – meaning the read-to-integrate modules allow developers to take advantage of functionality of the programmable computing platforms with onboard cellular radio all in one compact design.
