LARA-R6 series modules provide global and multi-regional coverage in a very small form factor, thereby reducing logistics complexity and increasing design flexibility. Three different product variants provide flexibility for band use and access technology by region and include all relevant MNO certifications.

All modules in the series support receive-diversity, making them the ideal choice for deployment in North America, as well as for a diverse set of applications with demanding requirements for reliable performance in difficult coverage conditions or those that require voice functionality via VoLTE. The modules are also secure by design with a root of trust, secure boot, secure updates, and secure communications ((D)TLS) functionality. Security is regularly updated via maintenance releases to keep your device running and protected from attacks.

LARA-R6001 is the smallest LTE Cat 1 multi-mode module with global coverage available in the market. As a single SKU, it provides universal connectivity and greatly simplifies logistics. This truly global module has 18 LTE bands plus 3G/2G fallback.

LARA-R6401 provides an ideal LTE Cat 1 solution for North America, as it supports all relevant LTE bands and is designed for use on AT&T, Verizon, FirstNet, or T-Mobile. Managing a single SKU for the North American market simplifies logistics and reduces associated costs.

LARA-R6801 is a multi-regional variant specifically designed for use in EMEA/APAC/Japan and LATAM regions, supporting all relevant LTE bands and technologies.

With the three regional variants, you can maximize the reuse of development efforts. Versatile interfaces, features, multi-band, and multi-mode capabilities make LARA-R6 ideally suited for a wide range of applications that require medium data speed, seamless connectivity, superior coverage, low latency, and streaming data or voice. They include asset tracking, telematics, remote monitoring, alarm panels, video surveillance, connected health, and point-of-sale terminals.
