STMicroelectronics' Location-Aware Mobile Network IoT Module Receives Vodafone NB-IoT Certification

【Lansheng Technology Information】On August 31, 2023, STMicroelectronics announced that the ST87M01 NB-IoT and GNSS module has obtained Vodafone NB-IoT certification. The ST87M01 integrates mobile IoT access and geolocation functions in a small, low-power, integrated module, suitable for various IoT and smart industrial applications.

STMicroelectronics' ST87M01 was also recently certified by the Global Certification Forum (GCF), an organization that promotes interoperability of mobile network and IoT products. The module complies with 3GPP Release 15 technical specifications and provides greater multi-region LTE coverage.

The NB-IoT certification of the ST87M01 is also timely for new electricity, water and gas smart metering systems planned for global rollout. In India in particular, the module represents a very effective smart meter deployment scenario, which is expected to reach 250 million smart meter deployments in the next five years.

The module integrates the advanced embedded SIM card ST4SIM embedded SIM (eSIM), and has passed the latest industry standard certification, for example, GSMA eSA (Security Assurance) certification. Inside ST4SIM there is also a certified Embedded Security Element (eSE). The entire circuit is housed in a tiny 10.6mm x 12.8mm LGA package.

Low-power features maximize battery life in battery-powered applications, and the on-chip integrated native GNSS satellite receiver operates during NB-IoT sleep periods for improved power-saving features.

Developers can easily integrate the ST87M01 with other ST products, such as MEMS smart actuators and sensors, interfaces and other connectivity chips, to develop more IoT applications that require geolocation accuracy. These include pet and personal item tracking devices, industrial asset tracking, and sensors used throughout smart infrastructure, smart farming, and more.
