Unveiling New Products

Taurus 5G NR for 5G Broadband

The Taurus 5G NR, an industry-first chipset, is tailor-made for broadband IoT and supports 1 Gbps speed. Taurus supports sub-6GHz radio (FR1) in both standalone and non-standalone 5G NR with 4G LTE fallback. It is an optimal solution for cost-effective 5G broadband applications, including fixed wireless access, portable hotspots, mobile computing, video surveillance, and industrial IoT.

Cassiopeia for LTE Cat 4 Private and Public Networks

The Cassiopeia CA410 module amalgamates support for 900 MHz and CBRS spectrum with USA public mobile network operator bands in a single, integrated solution. This multi-band module is designed for utilities and their OEMs who intend to modernize their energy distribution networks. The solution provides the flexibility to operate a private LTE network supporting 900 MHz and CBRS with the option to connect to commercial networks. This unique module is the result of a collaboration with Anterix, GE Vernova, 4RF, and RAD.

Upcoming Products

Taurus LT for 5G RedCap

A forthcoming chip, Taurus LT, is set to enrich Sequans portfolio by supporting 5G NR RedCap (reduced capability) with fallback to LTE Cat 4. The Taurus LT will broaden the scope of cellular IoT applications and offer an economical future-proof path to applications using LTE Cat 4 today.
