The antenna modules are compatible with GPS, GLONASS, Beidou and Galileo to enable device manufacturers to develop cost-effective location-based IoT solutions for use in virtually any country worldwide.

The SE878K3-A and SE878K7-A modules include dual internal-external antennas to ensure connectivity when one is compromised or stops working as well as a SAW filter for jamming immunity. Telit said these features allow the antennas to be used in applications such as high-end asset tracking, stolen car recovery or security alarms.

Telit said the modules integrate with the company’s cellular modules — including eCall/ERA-GLONASS compliant solutions — that allows the antennas to be used in telematics applications such as fleet management, road tolling and in-vehicle navigation systems.
