Sponsored by Businesswire

Sequans Communications (NYSE: SQNS) announced that Monarch SiP, a joint
system-in-package mobile IoT connectivity solution from Sequans and
Skyworks Solutions, is now available via Verizon’s ThingSpace IoT
Accelerator Program for a price as low as $6.50 to qualified customers
under Verizon ThingSpace terms and conditions. The SiP, introduced to
the market last year and certified by Verizon as a module, is jointly
marketed and sold by Sequans and Skyworks and has already been designed
into wearables and trackers by IoT device makers requiring an
ultra-compact solution.

“This is an incredible price for a connectivity solution that beats all
competing solutions available today,” said Nick Taluja, Sequans’ VP of
worldwide sales. “It is 66 percent smaller in size, more than 50 percent
thinner, and more than 90 percent better in low power consumption than
its nearest competitor. This remarkable breakthrough connectivity
solution, which represents a level of performance unmatched anywhere in
the world, was made possible by the very close supply chain
collaboration of Sequans and Skyworks.”

Monarch SiP combines Skyworks’ LTE universal, multi-band RF front-end
module with Sequans’ Monarch LTE-M/NB-IoT Platform in a single,
ultra-compact SiP that enables worldwide deployment and roaming
capability in a Single-SKU™. Monarch SiP achieves a very high level of
integration whereby baseband, RF transceiver, power management, RF
front-end, RAM memory, and most of the required passives, are integrated
into an 8.8 x 10.8 x 0.95 mm package for an industry-leading compact
size. The Monarch SiP mobile IoT solution is listed as SKY66430 in
Skyworks’ catalog and SQN66430 in Sequans’ catalog.
