Qualcomm introduces the 9205 modem to improve the connectivity of IoT devices: Qualcomm processor specialized manufacturer has launched its new 9205 LTE modem, which focuses especially on the Internet of Things (IoT) devices and presents connectivity improvements and a reduction in consumption up to 70 % in idle mode.
Among the features of the 9205 modem is its use in IoT devices with batteries to help them operate for ten or more years and adapt to the low energy consumption needs of these devices, as Qualcomm explained on its website.
The Qualcomm device has a connectivity that covers frequencies between 450 MHz to 2.1 GHz, with support for more than 23 frequency bands. It also uses as standard an ARM Cortex A7 processor up to 800 MHz and the LTE standard version 14, with voice support and low latency.Among the characteristics of the Qualcomm modem has also highlighted its energy saving capabilities, with a consumption in idle mode 70% lower than its predecessor and a design 50% smaller, with integrated RAM and flash memory to improve efficiency .
The Qualcomm 9205 LTE modem can be used for outdoor devices, with a resistance to extreme temperatures of up to 85 degrees Celsius maximum and -40 degrees minimum.
It also offers security features through the use of Qualcomm’s Trusted Execution security ecosystem, as well as the FIPS cybersecurity standard granted by the United States government.
The Qualcomm modem is intended especially for Internet of Things devices, among which the US company has highlighted its use in ‘wearables’, health monitoring, security systems, smart city sensors and monitoring of assets.
