Telit, an enabler of the Internet of the Things (IoT), teamed up with provider of LTE chipsets Altair and introduced the LE866 module, the first in a new series based on Altair chipsets designed to support LTE Category 1 enhancements for Machine-Type Communications (MTC). The LE866 is described as the smallest LTE module in the market as its LGA footprint is a mere 15 x 25 mm. It's a UE Category 1 device with maximum data rate of 10 Mbps downlink and 5 Mbps uplink. The module employs Altair's FourGee-1160/6401 IoT-optimised chipset.
