Telit FN980 5G Series Modules Now Certified for Verizon C-Band SpectrumHighlights:

  • Verizon can deliver higher capacity and performance to customers using C-band certified devices based on the FN980 and FN980m modules from Telit
  • The Telit FN980 5G module series is ideal for enterprise routers and gateways, high-speed fixed wireless access modems, private LTE/5G networks, video broadcasting and surveillance

Telit, a global leader in the Internet of Things (IoT), today announces that the company’s FN980 5G module series — FN980 and FN980m — have received C-band certification from Verizon.

Based on the new 3GPP Rel. 15 standard, the 5G modules enable bandwidth intensive IoT applications — including high-definition (HD) surveillance video and digital signage — to take advantage of Verizon’s 5G Ultra-Wideband network in the C-band 5G spectrum.

The FN980 and FN980m series enables 3GPP 5G deployment scenarios and features both sub-6 and mmWave (mmW) technologies. The series also includes non-standalone LTE-5G NR dual connectivity (EN-DC), dynamic spectrum sharing between LTE and 5G, and full 5G NR standalone mode. The industrial-grade design is ideal for mission-critical applications that require maximum reliability, including industrial routers and gateways, fixed wireless access (FWA), professional mobile high-resolution video broadcasting equipment and more. In addition to C-band, both modules support sub-6GHz FDD/TDD and LTE Category 20 – 7x carrier aggregation.

Jitender Vohra, senior director of carrier relations at Telit, said:

“Together with all these features and benefits, we are very excited to have our M.2 5G Mobile Broadband (MBB) modules — the award-winning FN980 and FN980m — certified for use on Verizon’s C-band.”

“As we continue to lead the industry in technology evolution our FN980 series continues to expand the possibilities of network evolution to 5G and beyond.”
