Qualcomm products mentioned within this press release are offered by Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and/or its subsidiaries.

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. has completed validation of our cutting-edge Qualcomm® 9205 LTE IoT Modem’s capabilities for Japanese network operator NTT DOCOMO’s 3GPP Release-14 LTE-M network, adding to the growing number of carriers around the world to validate the chipset’s performance for multimode IoT networks.

The Qualcomm 9205 LTE modem is Qualcomm Technologies’ latest global solution for multimode IoT connectivity around the world. Thanks to its Power Class 5 multi-band power amplifier, fully integrated RF front-end, and small form factor, the Qualcomm 9205 LTE Modem is engineered to reduce power consumption by up to 70% in idle mode compared to its predecessor – a critical consideration for battery-powered IoT devices that need to operate for 10 years or longer in the field. The modem is also 50% smaller and more cost-effective than its predecessor – making it ideal for the low-power, wide-area, small form factor requirements of modern IoT.

“We are pleased to validate the performance of our cutting-edge Qualcomm 9205 LTE Modem on NTT DOCOMO’s operational network,” said Vieri Vanghi, vice president, product management, Qualcomm Europe, Inc. “The Qualcomm 9205 LTE Modem offers a fully integrated Power Class 5 amplifier and RF front end, along with highly energy-efficient multimode capabilities and integrated GNSS and cloud SDK offerings, to drive LTE IoT solutions that are both powerful in performance and economical with long-lasting battery life.”

“We are pleased that Qualcomm Technologies has completed the testing of their Qualcomm 9205 LTE Modem on our LTE-M network,” said Takeshi Higuchi, general manager, communication device development department, NTT DOCOMO. “We believe that with its low power consumption and support for other essential requirements for IoT devices, the Qualcomm 9205 LTE Modem meets the key factors needed for cutting-edge IoT implementation and makes IoT devices more attractive on our LTE-M network.”
