Sequans and Momentum IoT Partner on Cloud-Based Telematics Solution for Fleet Managers

PARIS & LONG BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#connectedcarslt;/agt;–LTE for IoT chipmaker Sequans Communications S.A. (NYSE: SQNS) and
Momentum IoT, fleet management hardware and software solutions provider,
have joined forces to add LTE-M connectivity to the Momentum IoT Eagle 1
telematics tracking device for a total solution that makes fleet
management more user-friendly and more cost-effective. The Momentum IoT
Eagle 1 allows fleet managers to monitor and track the status of
virtually everything in their fleets, from location and fuel consumption
to maintenance problems.

“Adding LTE-M connectivity to the Eagle 1 is crucial to our fleet
manager customers because important data, including location, trip
activity, or real-time maintenance issues, can now be transmitted via
the always on and everywhere available nationwide LTE-M network, which
provides connectivity at a lower cost and with lower power consumption,”
said Justin Silva, CEO of Momentum IoT. “We chose Sequans’ Monarch
because it is the world’s leading LTE-M/NB-IoT chip, and Sequans is the
proven leader in LTE for IoT. They help us offer better value and higher
performance for field service managers.”

The Momentum Eagle 1 is an ultra-advanced and rugged device that is easy
to install with plug-in connectors that need no wiring. The auto-load
feature automatically sets up the vehicle in the dashboard where fleet
managers can instantly view odometer, voltage, and fuel level readings,
as well as the idle, park, or moving status of every truck or vehicle in
their fleet. Managers have full visibility of trucks on the map,
including distance from site and deviations. Notifications are provided
for trip length and speed reports, and alerts are provided for
maintenance issues.

“We are pleased to partner with Momentum IoT to bring the truly
innovative Eagle 1 telematics solution to market,” said Georges Karam,
CEO of Sequans. “Momentum IoT is enabling fleet operators of all sizes
to benefit from telematics solutions that have previously been available
only to big companies—they are making it simpler and more
cost-effective, while providing the full range of telematics features
with high security.”

The LTE connectivity in the Momentum Eagle 1 telematics device is
powered by Sequans Monarch
LTE-M/NB-IoT Platform. Monarch provides full support for power saving
mode (PSM) and extended discontinuous reception (eDRX) to enable long
battery life, and it provides enhanced coverage modes, including a +23
dBm power amplifier, that extend coverage for deep-indoor and remote
deployments. For LTE positioning, Monarch incorporates the positioning
technology of Polte for accurate, low power, indoor and outdoor
positioning capability using only the LTE radio. Monarch delivers
programmable RF filtering for global band support in a Single-SKU™, and
proprietary dynamic power management technology, enabling rock bottom
power consumption of 1 micro amp. Monarch is certified by operators
around the world.

“With Momentum, we saw immediate results,” said Chris Spano, CEO of
Traffic Management Inc. “With accurate visibility, we were able to
deploy more projects with higher daily utilization and more accurate
billing. This has become a key competitive advantage. Our clients see us
at our best. Momentum made it happen.”

The Momentum Eagle 1 telematics solution is now available. For a free
