u-blox cellular modules pass US certifications
u-blox’s SARA-R5 LTE-M and NB-IoT cellular series has been LTE-M certified with several North American Tier 1 operators and is now in production.

The SARA-R5 series is based on u-blox’s own low power wide area (LPWA) chipset, UBX-R5.

The UBX-R5 chipset had already been awarded MNO certification earlier this year and is also certified by Global Certification Forum (GCF).

The SARA-R5 series provides robust cloud connectivity. Each module has integrated Secure Cloud functionality with a unique and immutable identity derived from a hardware-based robust root of trust – hosted inside a Secure Element. This forms the basis for a trusted set of advanced security features including the management of encryption keys. Available as u-blox IoT Security-as-a-Service (SaaS), the functionality provides IoT devices with trusted security for sensitive or confidential applications.

By providing all of the technology building blocks in-house, leading to full hardware and software ownership of the SARA-R5, u-blox is able to guarantee long-term device availability and provide lifetime support for the entire platform. SARA-R5 is also 5G-ready to allow customers to software upgrade deployed devices once 5G LTE has been rolled out by mobile operators.

“We are thrilled to see our SARA-R5 with our own LPWA chipset now LTE-M certified in the US and entering production,” said Samuele Falcomer, Senior Product Manager, Product Center Cellular, u-blox. “The SARA-R5 series is unique for the level of security it brings with a root of trust embedded in a hardware-based Secure Element and a key management system (KMS) that is highly optimized for low bandwidth LPWA applications.”

The SARA-R5 series comes in three product variants, which all feature u-blox Secure Cloud functionality and support u-blox IoT SaaS. The SARA-R500S has LTE connectivity, while the SARA-R510M8S features the integrated u-blox M8 GNSS and a separate GNSS antenna interface for reliable and accurate positioning data. The SARA-R510S is designed for ultra-low battery-powered applications.
