Global Telecom today announced it has received certification for its Cat 12/15 module on Sprint Curiosity™ IoT – the first fully virtualized and distributed core network dedicated exclusively to the Internet of Things (IoT). The GTC-7243A is an embedded LTE module that can enable a diverse range of IoT applications, with high-speed connectivity to support use-cases like artificial intelligence, robotics, edge computing and autonomous vehicles.
Having this module Sprint certified allows both Sprint customers and developers the ability to use the Cat 12/15 module in a variety of ways on Curiosity™, as well as enabling solutions such as Omni – Sprint’s intelligent office solution for small and mid-sized businesses. Because of the standard PCIe USB interface, the newly certified GTC-7243A allows Sprint IoT customers to realize significant reduction in time to market and near instant 4G communication capability for high-bandwidth, low-latency IoT solutions.
