As the leading GPS tracker manufacturer in the industry, ReachFar has launched the latest CAT1 version of the 4G positioning GPS bracelet for the elderly. CAT1 positioning GPS bracelet supports 4G full Netcom, using multiple positioning methods such as GPS + Beidou + WIFI + base station, IP67 waterproof function, heart rate, blood pressure, blood oxygen, temperature, and tamper alarm. SOS alarm, fence alarm, fall alarm and other alarm methods. It can be used as a clock to tell the time and an alarm clock to remind the elderly; it can also be used as a telephone to communicate with family members at ease; it is also a GPS tracker to protect the safety of the elderly. The practicality of its multiple functions. In addition, this model has big sound, embossed touch-sensitive buttons, and simple operation without screen. The details of each function are tailor-made for the elderly. And now the upgraded Cat.1 is even more intimate in terms of battery life, considering the high-power consumption of 4G and short standby and charging every day. Cat.1 can be standby for 7-9 days. It is an artifact that solves the real consideration of living alone, the elderly, the disabled, and the safety of the elderly at home. However, some people may ask what is Cat.1?

The full name of Cat.1 is LTEUE-Category1, where UE refers to user equipment, which is a classification of the wireless performance of user terminal equipment under the LTE network. According to the definition of 3GPP, UE categories are divided into 15 levels from 1-15. The ultimate goal of Cat.1 is to serve the Internet of Things and achieve the purpose of low power consumption and low-cost LTE connections, which is of great significance to the development of the Internet of Things.

What is 4G? 4G refers to the fourth generation of mobile communication technology (abbreviated as "4G"). 4102 "4G" includes TD-LTE and FDD-LTE. This is a better improvement of 3G technology. Compared with 3G communication technology, it has greater advantages. It is a perfect combination of WLAN technology and 3G communication technology, which can make the image transmission speed faster and image look clearer. The application of 4G communication technology in smart communication equipment makes the user's Internet faster, with speeds up to 100Mbps.

The difference between Cat.1 and 4G: Cat.1 belongs to the 4G series and can completely reuse existing 4G resources. Although the 4g module mainly uses Cat.4, the download rate can reach 150m, but most IoT scenarios do not have such a high-rate requirement. With the development of the mature 4G industry chain, Cat.1, as the low-end version of 4G, only needs to make a few changes to the existing 4G products, and it can be quickly introduced to the market and reduce costs, reaching the expected range of the industry. Cat.1 is the user terminal level configured as the lowest version of the parameters, allowing the industry to design low-end 4G terminals at low cost. Of course, the "low version" 4G terminal Cat.1 also plays an important role in the industry. For example, some mobile phone manufacturers consider using Cat.1 chips to release 4G dumbphone, because many dumbphones only require basic calls and data. The Cat.1 function supports low-cost VoLTE and low-rate data, providing mobile phone manufacturers with new options. However, the importance of Cat.1 in the field of Internet of Things may be even more important.

Compared with NB-IoT and 2G modules, Cat.1 has advantages in network coverage, speed and latency. Compared with the traditional Cat.4 module, it has the advantages of low cost and low power consumption. At the same time, Cat.1 is suitable for the current home 4G network, which is very suitable for application scenarios that require cost performance, delay, coverage and communication speed.

Considering the overall GPS market, the Cat.1 smart V48 bracelet developed by ReachFar is suitable for domestic and foreign markets. Take China as an example. On May 11, the State Information Office held a press conference on the main data results of the seventh national census. In terms of total population, the total population of the country is 1,41.78 million, among which 18.7%, 264.02 million are population of 60 years and over. Among them, the population of 65 years and over is 190.64 million, accounting for 13.50%. Because the overall quality of the elderly care service team is not high and the professional development of employees is lagging behind, the existing service team in China is far from being able to meet the objective needs of the elderly care professional development. In 2009, the number of disabled and semi-disabled elderly in China’s urban areas reached 14.6%, and that in rural areas exceeded 20%. These elderly people need professional care. According to the ratio of elderly people to caregivers of 3:1, the country needs at least 10 million elderly care workers. China’s pension and welfare institutions have only 220,000 employees, and only more than 20,000 have obtained professional qualifications for elderly care, which is far from the potential needs in China. Moreover, the overall quality of the service team is low, and it's same on professional level. To a certain extent, professional capabilities and service quality cannot meet the care needs of the elderly, and there is a serious shortage of elderly care institutions, beds and professionals. This problem also exists in other countries in the world, especially developed countries, and it is even more serious.

Fundamentally speaking, the reality that many elderly people in the future will have to choose home care. Regardless of the future development of smart care for the elderly, they will rely on smart devices to a greater extent. The CAT.1 smart GPS bracelet first launched by ReachFar Tech can solve this part of the contradiction. It acts as a bridge between children and the elderly, in the community and the elderly, and in institutions and the elderly. Children, communities, and institutions can connect devices and people through APP and PC, and communicate with people remotely, thereby saving manpower and material costs. It can be real-time, fast, efficient, and low-cost, and provide interconnection, and intelligence oriented elderly care services.
