Tuesday, 03 March, 2020 | Supplied by: u-blox Singapore Pte Ltd



The Global Certification Forum (GCF) has certified the UBX-R5, u-blox’s multiband LTE-M/NB-IoT chipset featuring end-to-end device security, data security and access control management. The device is a 5G-ready cellular chipset for low-power wide-area (LPWA) mission-critical or long life-cycle IoT applications such as smart metering, telematics, tracking, security systems, building automation, smart lighting and connected health. It has been certified under GCF’s IoT chipset program, designed to certify IoT chipsets covering NB-IoT and LTE-M to allow the IoT ecosystem to easily integrate and embed certified chipsets into modules and devices.

With mobile network operators announcing their plans to roll out 5G networks, 5G readiness is becoming a key factor in selecting cellular communication modules. LTE-M and NB-IoT are forward‑compatible with 5G networks and, by implementing key LTE‑M and NB‑IoT features from 3GPP Release 14, UBX-R5 offers users a smooth transition towards 5G via software upgrades to already deployed devices. The product also offers built-in end‑to‑end security due to a hardware‑based root of trust (RoT) integrated in a discrete secure element compliant with EAL5+ High common criteria certification, which makes it suitable for protecting sensitive assets and communications.
