MultiTech Unveils Cutting-Edge 5G NR Reduced Capability (RedCap) UE Mobile Devices, powered by the Latest Telit Cinterion Generation of Modules, Accelerating Industrial 5G IoT Adoption

Mounds View, Minnesota, February 21, 2024. MultiTech, a global leader in industrial IoT communication solutions, proudly announces the launch of its innovative portfolio of 5G New Radio (NR) Reduced Capability (RedCap) cellular modems and gateways. Aligned with 3GPP Release 17 standards, 5G NR Reduced Capability, commonly known as RedCap, signifies a significant breakthrough in the trajectory of 5G NR connectivity, streamlining the complexity, cost, and size of 5G devices for assets currently utilizing LTE Cat 1 to 4.

Based on 5G cutting edge technology from Telit Cinterion and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., MultiTech has developed the 5G RedCap MultiConnect® microCell USB modem, providing a ruggedized and quick to deploy solution for enterprises, OEMs, and solution providers to connect IoT assets and solutions, including robotics, autonomous vehicles, smart grid assets, control systems, and industrial sensors, in a cost-effective and scalable manner. The RedCap microCell USB Modem also empowers telcos and system integrators with unprecedented capabilities to reap the full potential of 5G, enhancing productivity, efficiency, extending coverage, optimizing network efficiency, and improving device battery life. At the core of the RedCap microCell USB modem, the Telit Cinterion FE910C04 RedCap LGA module– leveraging the Snapdragon® X35 5G Modem-RF System from Qualcomm Technologies – delivers reliable and secure RedCap NR communication, future proofing the MultiTech device into the new 5G era of connectivity.

“We are deepening our collaboration with 5G infrastructure vendors, system integrators, and global operators to accelerate the adoption of 5G within the Industrial IoT landscape,” said Daniel Quant, VP & GM for Gateways, Routers & Modems at Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. “Our collaboration on 5G RedCap with Telit Cinterion extends our leadership in the U.S. cellular sector, securing gateways, modems and modules into industrial and critical infrastructure segments embracing 5G.”

“Our commitment to shaping the future of IoT is evident in our dedication to providing cutting-edge technology and maintaining our longstanding partnership with MultiTech. The MultiTech 5G RedCap microCell USB Modem not only streamlines and economically scales IoT across applications like robotics and smart grids but also strengthens Telit Cinterion’s position as a leader in IoT,” said Manish Watwani, Chief Marketing and Product Officer at Telit Cinterion. “The collaboration with MultiTech underscores our continuous efforts as a western IoT leader, delivering solutions that shape the evolution of 5G.”

The MultiTech 5G RedCap mobile devices are on show during MWC in Barcelona at the Telit Cinterion booth in Hall 5 (5A32) and at Ericsson in Hall 2 (2O60). Commercial availability and shipments expected during the first half of 2024. For additional details and early samples, please visit:
