Altair Semiconductor gets its fifth operator certification in the past year for its dual-mode cellular IoT Chipset, ALT1250. The leading provider of Internet of Things chipsets is now globally certified, with 15 carrier certifications dating back to 2018.



How Altair's ALT1250 is changing the IoT game?


Altair Semiconductor's ALT1250 is a narrowband cellular IoT chipset with integrated GNSS/GPS capability. The module supports both Release 13 standards - CAT-M1 and NB1 and includes a wideband RF front-end supporting a wide range of combinations of LTE bands within a single hardware design. It integrates an LTE baseband processor, RF transceiver, PMU, memory, PAs, filters and antenna switch, a GNSS and a cellular-based location engine, as well as an IoT-optimized security framework. The chipset has ultra-low power consumption in a variety of modes, including 3GPP PSM and eDRX, enabling more than 10 years of battery life. It is available in a package measuring less than 100 mm2 in size and is ideal for many IoT applications - including asset tracking, vehicle monitoring, and wearable devices. The ALT1250 chipset is designed to operate with rechargeable Li-ion and prime batteries.

Altair says its dual-mode cellular IoT chipsets provide low power consumption which enables a long battery life. The commercially available chipsets feature a hardware-based security framework and an integrated SIM (iUICC), MCU, and GNSS appropriated for industrial and commercial IoT applications. Altair's dual-mode cellular IoT chipsets are the most advanced in the country.



IoT product manufacturers can use the ALT1250 to design and manufacture connected devices for global markets without having to create alternate product versions for different markets or global regions.

The 15 CAT-M and NB-IoT carrier certifications of the ALT1250 chipset or ALT1250-based products include AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, Softbank, KDDI, Docomo, Deutsche Telecom, Vodafone and Telstra. Besides, Altair reports, ALT1250-based products are approved by most operator networks that accept GCF or PTCRB certifications.



Deutsche Telekom, one of the world’s leading mobile operators, is currently developing a portfolio of certified chipset modules that will allow end-users to add their devices to the network. Their certified LTE-M chipset, ALT1250, will allow for interoperability, faster time-to-market, wide deployment options, and reduced operating costs.

Anacle's Tesseract Selected by the EMA to Develop and Testbed NB-IoT-enabled Advanced Electricity Meters

Anacle Systems Limited, Energy Market Authority | April 23, 2021

SINGAPORE, Apr 21, 2021 - (ACN Newswire) - Anacle Systems Limited ("Anacle") has been selected by the Singapore Energy Market Authority ("EMA") to develop and testbed Narrowband Internet-of-Things (NB-IoT) enabled advanced electricity meters. The future meters will be based on Anacle's leading edge Tesseract® series of hyper-smart meters. This initiative is a collaboration between the EMA, Smart Nation and Digital Government Group (SNDGG) and utilities provider SP Group. The testbed will eventually be rolled out across 1.4 million consumer accounts (mainly households) in Singapore by 2024, as part of the national drive towards digitalization and greater efficiency. Launched in 2017, the Tesseract® opens up a world of possibilities. An end product of many years of rigorous research and development, the Tesseract® is currently the world's most powerful edge device for electricity monitoring and analysis. It has more than 40 times more computing power than the next nearest device, FeRAM-based persistent memory that is more than 6 million times more durable than traditional EEPROM-based memory, 10GB in-device storage, built-in digital signal processing and data encryption capabilities, as well as supporting both Linux and Android operating systems, opening up infinite possibilities for applications. "This is a huge step towards Singapore's sustainability goal as more businesses and households are now able to take charge of their own energy use. By providing consumers with detailed analysis of their energy consumption patterns, they will be able to save energy more effectively and contribute to the national sustainability efforts," said Mr Alex Lau, CEO of Anacle Systems Limited. The Tesseract® hyper-smart meter is familiar to many, especially to the residents of Teck Ghee, Ang Mo Kio. In late 2019, the Tesseract® was installed at 1,450 household units as part of the Housing Development Board (HDB)'s Smart Green Homes Initiative program. Besides receiving the Tesseract® hyper-smart meter, residents were equipped with a smart home mobile application and three smart plugs, with which they can use to monitor their household consumption and remotely turn on and off the smart plugs. With the limitless capabilities of the Tesseract®, businesses and households in Singapore can look forward to reap greater benefits from the consumption data that they obtain. The Tesseract® hyper-smart meter will continue to empower and bring about greater energy efficiency to the Singapore nation. About the Energy Market Authority The Energy Market Authority (EMA) is a statutory board under the Ministry of Trade and Industry. The main goals of EMA are to ensure a reliable and secure energy supply, promote effective competition in the energy market and develop a dynamic energy sector in Singapore.
