Quectel and Morse Micro: A Partnership to Benefit Global Connectivity in IoT

By Alex Passett

It would seem that news from global IoT solutions provider Quectel abounds this year. (Prepaid IoT connectivity for EU markets, as well as its FGH100M Wi-Fi HaLow module, CC200A-LB satellite module, and its KG100S Amazon Sidewalk-compatible module.)

Let’s rewind to that HaLow part, though. Wi-Fi HaLow – a connectivity technology that extends Wi-Fi’s role in IoT networking use cases that require longer range and less power – operates in the sub-GHz range and builds on IEE 802.11ah wireless networking protocol. In the case of Quectel, the company’s FGH100M is already IEE 802.11ah-compliant and is based on Morse Micro’s Wi-Fi HaLow SoC. (i.e. Morse Micro, the fabless semiconductor company focused on ultra-long range, ultra-low power interoperability solutions for IoT)

In simple terms: Wi-Fi HaLow enables stronger range and penetration through walls and environmental obstacles, coupled with lower power consumption for IoT sensors.

So, that’s the backstory. The main story here is even simpler: Quectel and Morse Micro recently announced their official strategic partnership to deliver additional Wi-Fi HaLow solutions to market.

Anchored by Morse Micro’s aforementioned MM6108 microchip (and leveraging FCC-certified reference designs), Quectel modules and portfolio of related technologies are anticipated to present many commercial advantages and smarter coverage on a global scale.

“Our partnership with Morse Micro,” said Norbert Muhrer, Quectel’s President and CEO, back in March, “demonstrates our continued focused to provide our customers with leading-edge IoT solutions to be deployed around the world. Morse Micro’s industry-leading Wi-Fi HaLow technology is well-suited for IoT modules designed to meet the Internet of Things’ growing demands.”

“Quectel’s comprehensive portfolio has provided a strategic footprint for us to continue integrating our Wi-Fi HaLow technology that delivers ten times the range of traditional Wi-Fi,” added Michael De Nil, co-founder and CEO of morse Micro. “We look forward to the future developments that this collaboration with Quectel will lead to, and how game-changing they’ll be for consumers and enterprises, for smart homes and smart cities, and everything in-between.”
