Altair Semiconductor IoT Chipset Receives Global Certification

Altair Semiconductor, a provider of cellular Internet of Things (IoT) chipsets, has announced that it has received its fifth operator certification in the past year for its dual-mode ALT1250 cellular IoT chipset from mobile operator Deutsche Telekom AG. The ALT1250 is now globally certified, with 15 carrier certifications dating back to 2018. Deutsche Telekom is developing a portfolio of certified chipset modules, allowing end users to add devices to the network.

Altair's dual-mode cellular IoT chipsets provide low power consumption, the company reports, enabling a long battery life. Commercially available, they feature a hardware-based security framework, as well as such features as an integrated SIM (iUICC), MCU and GNSS, making them suitable for industrial and consumer IoT applications. According to the company, 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.

"Deutsche Telekom's certification process is one of the most rigorous in the industry, and we are proud to have the ALT1250 validated by them," said Dima Feldman, Altair Semiconductor's VP of product management and marketing, in a prepared statement. 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. In addition, Altair reports, ALT1250-based products are approved by most operator networks that accept GCF or PTCRB certifications.
