February 1, 2021

Cavli Wireless is rewriting India's current journey in wireless communication technology with the company's recent partnership with GCT Semiconductor, Inc. USA. The partnership will kickstart the manufacturing and production of LPWAN, LTE and 5G modules in India based on GCT Semiconductor chipsets. India is an emerging hub of IoT product development for the global market and an IoT module designed, developed and manufactured in India is already welcoming news for Cavli’s existing customer base.

GCT Semiconductor, Inc. designs and develops innovative LTE chipset solutions for the 4G LTE, LPWAN and 5G wireless communication industry.
 
The release of Cavli’s LTE CAT M1/NB1/NB2 C42GM Smart IoT Module based on GCT GDM7243i is a key highlight in this partnership. C42GM, the latest addition to Cavli’s C-Series family, comes with an integrated eSIM, GNSS, CAN controller and BLE4.2, making it every asset tracking and automotive solution makers’ dream hardware. Furthermore, the C42GM smart IoT module is Sigfox compatible as well making it an attractive option for organizations focusing on hybrid connectivity solutions. A wide variety of LPWAN applications/use cases like trackers, wearables, smart utility meters, and other sensor-based solutions for smart city projects can be seamlessly powered with the eSIM integrated C42GM smart IoT module with global connectivity.

The ever-growing wireless connectivity industry now refueled by the added push for Digitization efforts, in the wake of the pandemic, is setting the stage for India to emerge as a global electronic manufacturing hub for the developed markets. This partnership with GCT Semiconductor is positioning Cavli Wireless as a preferred global partner for many enterprise IoT projects where the market is demanding connectivity hardware products with a high level of integration.

Currently running pilots with customers around the globe, the first IoT module from this partnership, C42GM will start shipping out globally on a mass production basis from Q1 2021.
