u-blox IoT chipset certified by AT&T for LTE-M

The u-blox UBX-R5 chipset platform offers unprecedented wireless technology
integration with built-in end-to-end security, making it ideal for long
life-cycle IoT applications.

Thalwil, Switzerland - March 23, 2020 - u-blox (SIX:UBXN, OTC:UBLXF), a
global provider of leading positioning and wireless communication
technologies, has completed AT&T's chipset verification process for the
UBX-R5 multi-band Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) chipset platform to operate on
the carrier's LTE-M network for the Internet of Things. The chipset features
end-to-end device security, data security, and access control management.

"Completing AT&T's ADAPT certification is a major milestone on the way to
commercial readiness of the SARA-R5 module series, our flagship LPWA modules
with secure cloud. We are thrilled that we are now one step closer to
bringing SARA-R5 based IoT solutions to the North American market," said

ecosystem that is critical to realizing the full potential of massive IoT."

The u-blox UBX-R5 is a cellular chipset platform supporting LPWA LTE-M and
NB-IoT technologies, optimized for long life cycle IoT applications such as
smart metering, telematics, tracking, security systems, building automation,
as well as smart lighting solutions and connected health. It implements key
features of 3GPP Release 14, answering the need for longevity in IoT
solutions.

UBX-R5 also offers unmatched built-in end-to-end security thanks to a
hardware-based root of trust (RoT) integrated in a discrete secure element
compliant with EAL5+ High common criteria certification, which makes it
