The WL865E4-P is a new IoT device module featuring ultra-low power consumption, an integrated security suite and dedicated CPUs, ideal for a wide variety of battery-powered and mission-critical IoT applications. The WL865E4-P is the latest addition to Telit’s low-power Wi-Fi module portfolio for health care, video, smart home, industrial control and more
Telit announced the availability of its latest module, the WL865E4-P. The low-power Wi-Fi Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) combination module is based on the Qualcomm QCA4020 system-on-chip (SoC) and is designed for high-bandwidth applications such as health care, video, smart home, and industrial control. Featuring integrated cryptology hardware, the WL865E4-P enables IoT developers to meet demanding requirements for power consumption, security, performance, size, and reliability.
The WL865E4-P is the latest addition to Telit’s low-power Wi-Fi module portfolio, which features proprietary power-saving technology that surpasses the Wi-Fi standard’s ultra-low-power modes. This enables the WL865E4-P to operate for years on a single AA battery, freeing enterprises and other users from the expense and inconvenience of periodically changing batteries on their IoT devices.
The dual-band, the dual-module module supports 802.11 a,b,g, and n, as well Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 5.0, all in a small footprint (595 sq. mm) that’s ideal for surveillance IoT devices. The WL865E4-P also features an integrated multi-core system-on-chip, with dedicated CPUs for IoT applications, Wi-Fi and BLE to maximize performance.
The WL865E4-P includes a complete suite of security features such as secured boot, flash encryption, copy protection, HTTPS and WPA/WPA2 Personal and Enterprise security modes. These safeguards help make the module idea for health care and other applications where security and data privacy are critical requirements.
“The new Telit WL865E4-P gives IoT vendors, integrators and service providers a powerful new choice for leveraging Wi-Fi and BLE low-cost connectivity while ensuring their solutions meet demanding security, performance and power requirements,” said Eric Lagorce, Senior Product Manager, Non-Cellular Modules, Telit. “With the addition of the WL865E4-P, Telit’s low-power short-range wireless module portfolio stays the go-to source for enabling an even wider range of IoT applications.”
