As you know, our industry will soon face the required transition from 3G to LTE. This transition may be difficult. But please be assured that we share the value you place on being able to use new technology to continue moving your business forward.
As previously announced, the model 263LTE-V and 263LTE-V/381-2 communicators are now shipping. In addition most custom dealer kits and packages will also begin shipping with the new LTE communicators as of today, May 1, 2018, unless a request has been made to continue shipping the CDMA communicator.
The standard XT30 and XT50 panel packages will be available for shipment with 263LTE-V communicators as of May 10th. To pre-order a standard XT30 or XT50 panel package with LTE just substitute the letters LV in place of 3C in the panel package part number. For example; XT30DNS/7060-W/3C would become XT30DNS/7060-W/LV.

Each of our new LTE modules are designed with Cat-M1 technology. These modems weren’t the first to be released by the modem manufactures, but they offer you important advantages; namely, 10 years of serviceand a cost savings on every module. Furthermore, adds Bill Dorman, SecureCom Wireless technical director:
“DMP’s CAT-M1 LTE modems will make use of Verizon’s 700 MHz frequency range. The current CDMA modems on Verizon use the 850 MHz range. This means that the lower frequency of the LTE modems have better range and penetration inside buildings. In addition, the CAT-M1 LTE technology make use of a new modulation that does a better job of defeating objects such as walls.”
Transitioning to LTE technology is a fact our entire industry must face. As we do, we’re confident our new family of LTE communicators will meet your expectations and keep moving your business forward.
