|Sequans introduces LTE modules for CBRS spectrum - going beyond current partners because SCALE demands more partners. This is a sign of aggressiveness and I applaud the BoD authorizing the push.|
To all whose DD includes SQNS this seems like a refresh of an older and existing product that is well-proven and thus not very significant.
I would add that rollouts on fresh and updated formats are exactly what ODMs demand and are therefore Revenue Attractive. But it is clearly an admission that selling chips faces a smaller Market of ODMs willing to design the entire solution, versus the number of smaller ODMs willing to design and integrate a ready-to-integrate Solution.
Could this reintroduce us to the Hotspot and Laptop market?

Sequans Introduces Two New LTE Modules for CBRS Spectrum | Markets Insider
Sequans Communications S.A. (NYSE: SQNS) announced the availability of two new modules optimized for the design of devices for LTE CBRS (Citizens Broadband Radio Service) networks. The two modules are the industry’s first cost-effective LCC (leadless chip carrier) modules designed from the ground up to enable easy and massive deployment of IoT devices on private LTE CBRS networks. The modules can support a wide range of medium data rate applications—including industrial IoT and M2M devices, gateways, and broadband consumer devices—and the very small form factor LCC package enables easy mounting into small and thin devices or mini-PCI or M.2 NGFF carriers.
According to Mobile Experts, leading wireless ecosystem research company, "Key building blocks for the CBRS market have been solidified, which means the market is ready for a commercial rollout beyond trials,” said Kyung Mun, analyst. "We expect a surge in small cell shipments between 2020 and 2023—an annual shipment of about 400,000 small cells and radio equipment revenue reaching over $900 million, and more than 550 million handsets, CPEs, and IoT devices cumulatively shipped during that time.”..
