u-blox has introduced what it claims is the world's first 4G LTE Cat 4 module with 3G WCDMA fall-back that works on AT&T and Verizon networks. The TOBY-L201 switches automatically or via AT work on AT&T's or Verizon's network, without the need to load new firmware. Depending on which carrier's SIM card is inserted, TOBY-L201 recognises the carrier and starts on that carrier's network. If devices are equipped with two SIM cards or a configurable SIM chip, TOBY-L201 can be switched between operators on-the-fly via a simple AT command, detailed the company.

The TOBY-L201 module offers download speeds up to 150Mb/s and comes in a 24.8mm x 35.6mm LGA form factor. It operates from -40°C to 85°C, targeting automotive, industrial and consumer devices. TOBY-L201 is also intended for infotainment systems, telematics control units, rugged mobile terminals, set-top boxes, notebooks, tablets, as well as high-speed M2M applications such as alarm panels, digital signage, mobile health, remote security and video systems.

TOBY-L201 includes IPv4/IPv6 stacks for secure Internet of Things applications. The module is designed for easy integration with u-blox GNSS modules and chips to provide both outdoor and indoor positioning capabilities. TOBY-L201 will also include an extensive suite of IP protocols including TCP/IP, UDP/IP, HTTP, FTP and SSL.

Linux supports TOBY-L201 modules natively, while u-blox provides RIL software for Android and Embedded Windows free of charge.

The modules are produced in ISO/TS 16949 automotive-certified production sites.
