SODAQ, Monogoto, and Sequans Communications create Multi-Purpose IoT Sensor for CBRS networks

As published by Monogoto on December 22st, 2021

Monogoto partnered with SODAQ, an IoT hardware company that specializes in developing IoT solutions and Sequans Communications S.A. (NYSE: SQNS), a leading provider of cellular IoT chips and modules for massive and broadband IoT – to build CBRSense™.

The integration of a low-power, battery-operated IoT sensor to the CBRS network introduces a step-change in the range of devices which were previously unsupported. CBRSense™ opens a world of possibilities to multiple industries that have decided to choose CBRS as a network. Compared to what is currently on the market, the new low-cost sensor can be run from any location and enjoys a long-life cycle of more than a year.

This collaboration began when Sequans opted to allow low-power modems into CBRS networks, enabling SODAQ’s sensors to integrate with private networks. CBRS (citizens broadband radio service) refers to a spectrum block at 3.5 GHz, allocated by the FCC for public use. This provides enterprises with an efficient way to build their own private LTE networks. For meaningful CBRS growth to occur, network capabilities require further development, which in turn will lead to more use cases. 

The future of 5G development depends on different use cases within the same network (network slicing). CBRSense™️ demonstrates use cases for the CBRS network that was previously dominated by high-speed CAT 12 CPE’s and UE use cases.

"We are very pleased to be the first network capable of hosting such a wide array of low-power devices. Our partnership with SODAQ and Sequans was a true collaboration in every sense allowing us to drive this innovation into the CBRS ecosystem"
