Indeed, in addition to its two traditional markets: low power wide area cellular IoT and broadband LTE, Sequans provides custom technology solutions to its customers in several vertical markets, including public safety, aviation, government, and transportation.
With more than fifteen years of experience in 4G and 5G semiconductor solutions with seven generations of technology developed and commercially deployed and millions of chips and modules deployed worldwide, Sequans is a leader in the industry and intends to continue its growth, leveraging the deployment of 4G and 5G public and private networks towards a connected and digital life.
Sequans provides embedded solutions to wirelessly connect Physical objects to the Cyber world. It was indeed natural to be part of Cyber-Physical Systems for Europe – CPS4EU project.
Sequans brings to the project its expertise of the device side and wireless technology. Sequans is actually leading WP2, the work-package in charge of connectivity aspects with two major objectives:
- deliver state of the art communication modules as building block of the pre-integrated architecture platforms of WP6, that could then serve the various vertical segments (automotive, energy, industry automation) having diverse requirements
- prepare the evolution of communication standards, with a particular focus on ultra reliable and low latency communication and time sensitive networking
Contributing to CPS4EU represents a great opportunity for Sequans to learn specific requirements and expectations from leading vertical industrial players of various sectors: automotive, industry automation, smart grid. Moreover, CPS4EU is a platform to improve visibility – and hopefully – market share in Europe. At last, CPS4EU provides a unique place to meet best in class academic partners and be exposed to most recent and promising technology trends.
