GCT Semiconductor LTE single-chip powers commercial LTE M2M module for LGU+

October 31, 2012 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
GCT® Semiconductor has announced that its 4G LTE single-chip, GDM7240, powers a new LTE M2M module, commercially available with LGU+, the leading telecommunication service provider in Korea.

The LTE M2M module, packaged as a half-mini-card, successfully completed LGU+’s interoperability testing, and is now commercially available. In addition, GCT and LGU+ continue to collaborate to develop other LTE single-mode applications such as routers.

As LTE networks are being deployed worldwide, there is a growing convergence between LTE and M2M, which offers benefits such as faster data rates, lower latency, and longevity, an important benefit for devices that have long lifecycles. LGU+’s LTE M2M module is ideally suited for point-of-sale terminals, automotive, remote monitoring and tracking, etc.

GCT’s GDM7240 has been selected for commercial use in terminal devices deployed by the leading LTE operators in the U.S. and various markets worldwide. GDM7240 is a field-proven LTE single-chip solution ideally suited to meet the rapidly growing demands for higher data speed, low power consumption, higher mobility, enhanced applications and global roaming.
