The order is for an emerging North America car OEM, Telit said

Internet of Things enabler Telit Communications Plc (LON:TCM)  revealed it had received a first order for its LTE Cat 6 connectivity device from an emerging American car parts maker.

The device will be shipped in the autumn and be fitted in cars along with other technology, increasingly seen in modern vehicles.

"Besides high-speed, the module was designed with specific attention to cybersecurity requirements in order to support reliable and comprehensive use of over-the-air software update technology," said Oozi Cats, Telit's chief executive.

"This is critically important for the automotive industry since so much of the car is now software defined."

The LTE Cat 6 module was certified from telecoms giant AT&T last month and will provide high-speed internet connectivity and is expected to start shipping to the North American market in the fall of 2017 and to other markets in 2018.

"For the past two years, we have been developing a new automotive LTE Cat 6 communication module based on an Intel platform for a new set of requirements from an emerging North America car OEM," added Cats.
