well. So the and road several we internationally markets on technology taking pursuing as are that

underway. So gotten it's just

a leader. very think we are market and it excited We about it's

Mike Walkley

to maybe get to walk products have change about map. optimized near-term change component Obviously, having as to more us out itemized contract the you you these about some in deciding of that, Can cost contract costs how manufacturers should and past building we market? progression you talked some margin the road shortages. headwinds with to product through think And off start more a just or gross

that's IoT, Now previously, frankly, development domains a because and strategy. both cost we're for across of of our platforms and costs technology boost those quite gateway, all a using gateway unlike LTE industrial XG products creating that's development so and global hotspots,

profiles. margin those we gateways, a higher much products industrial about once On the blend home the gross margin hotspot, the out XG newer side, talked the gateways, coming get and gross our have and of

we blend the margins, over & in to and take So progressing going it see see beyond. time as we profile let's the blend ourselves products to in our to frankly, the and Solutions but new, in older was It's XX%-ish we as goal, Mobile the gross XX% hitting mid-XXs. margin that. the gross And we a IoT roughly call get of that generation out currently business, see was mix

Mike Walkley

you Can Steve, Great. maybe the magnitude component that maybe you component of going of that with it quantify indicated component type the help ongoing pushing maybe guidance, shortages. Should guidance the revenues the contract manufacturers? you'll into some what And assume given left the XXXX for of of given shortages us change we same you've short-term in out on be issues? QX assumes

Steve Smith

One in we be sell to solved end -- calendar things year, have of the I expect end the is by by expect we said of this to -- the remarks the my of that shortage quarter. this this

that would little less, will bit So at It it expectation. probably least same magnitude? be my about will a the be

Mike Walkley

me, I'll and Okay. for pass queue. the question on Last

an pipeline? SaaS Just business? Can of just that And us overall business. the and for just overall airline the on opportunity update some you pipeline Enterprise competitive overall, through issues walk

Dan Mondor

thank Yes, you, Mike.

As and the the X year wins of and this more had beginning U.K., aviation new recently since there Germany South Africa. quarter, I said, X was we've

base The what that's So to basis growing. that a Significantly, revenue is is but gaining on small is we XXXX. on a momentum. capitalize expect pipeline it

of frankly. function our digits, nicely. customer number is engagements that's So very of very, large, would progressing as The equipment add paying low partnership partnership I KLM with a is quite services double that to that dividends.

So can't the well and my don't -- up in I very timing think because our comments proof-of-concept, of stack is that trial I the wins. we to gung made we're We focus away. there's earlier, predict blasting really periods And sort ho thing.

next what XX, wins, XX and a providers, the months. more. the results XX, to we We with on I new calculate said to And product service the design So lot with wins just to is of hell it's magnitude it's continue stacking will be follow. tough aviation, that's over know up why going focus the new really

So from up go them we're we'll and heads down, stacking there.


question is Roth next the Capital. Scott And from of Searle

Scott Searle

front. Steve, to on up quickly the Dan, just margin gross follow

mentioned going in transition? have in sales you corresponding about terms you anything the did I the this anything terms gross think if not In gross the that impact? the a that CM otherwise of And I to quarter, sure I'm talked to of is is as supply but of gross had margin or that your there transition, margin And part front. charges impact also onetime in follow-ups. related of margins a constraints couple

Dan Mondor

first. guess I comment last I'll Yes, part the on

global chain manufacturing into to why and from call is their we'll that? improvements, cost procure, component and on it supply Tier our CM, their we're what expectation strength and a is we're also doing able X supply and It's So strength, is a, efficiencies. transitioning

CM quite this out really cranking the -- will the frankly, from margin start that development towards again So end starting the expect quarter. gross -- that start of this move. of products once And to end we

So I around. be think all that good will

we some do if as in time buys of lead think we you some capacity. premium the of to QX the to some I have as things look far the components, at needed support long to do

hurt little but fact, to gross have needs. in we serve that margins So customers' our a bit, obviously,

think in to profile improvement. we're I gross see a So going margin combination,

Scott Searle

Got you.

as So as the line top front. products should component gross we no that the CM in first into both quarter, margin along new component well, constraints, with the front reflect from impact get and the

Dan Mondor

what nature to say is Largely, example, time beast. of Yes. part the expect lead the the nature components Scott. the that see, our this will of we and as And it's purchase an that's fundamentally plan. Qualcomm, I of from what we long

their and with just you kind will ahead things get footed those what the mitigate doing bit that's much caught partner really so flat chain long our vendor-managed on and broader you forward. in have demand, reach a times better actually going supply supply, when inventory on happened. little think And of has some problems a for and and and a customers that can I CM a chain lead But part backwards supply get of looking you jump

Scott Searle

I are or on you've following if quarter & seems is back, at best portfolio, to for MiFi as it X Mobile I the could, diversify the into in had some Got and we up Tier as cat base ramp-up and I job guess, front, about we adding Or the new little as into if should a X And XX product go turning that, a good about this XX thinking you. going in like IoT product is cat core of in Wondering think, part XXXX, starting rate the Solutions, thinking it quarters. early? we business bit going we XXXX? carriers. of growth the this is be about particularly of you terms done and are MiFi what now Certainly, around are products. of X to we as that kind terms

Dan Mondor

stuff bullish a of for we the and would you to $XX LTE forth take think I hit. faced us business. and for consider we're and I'm periods, anyway, supply category Well, The around basically, we're where have it never will all categories XG quickly mean, Yes, same high knows constraints baseline always happen in happening. like. think, We so taking these I valuation forward. I go. the this up, supply, stuff, rollout mean, periods lot account, that you million the the would and really tracker XG on expanding, CATMX were been a But yes, going There's instance, is I how brand-new so they we as the into gigabit. that who we stacking as with altogether, We're

business sky's So yes, see. I'm We'll and the that now on bullish think, limit. right extremely I

in happened think XX there's about of lot big last frankly, things drivers engagements of a and we wins it are and we days happening, our since the quick, happened what's our a mobile expected. in than rapidly is if that quite the is I one XG. lot the faster Those And talked amazing hotspot.

much the question. bigger. How that's big? Much, yes. So

Scott Searle

I some if on. to XG kind next When looking engagements on as hotspot you then about and like pass one year? it of would bit little on talked that then sounds well shipments, Dan, sounds XXXX, follow-up front a of mobile multiple And is on that like XG you middle But on could, that transitioning I'll on NR. expect going it the get XG relationship Verizon as or Could is into you look the fixed opportunity pretty when what little quantification a some more that to be able And might color well the of terms details more actively you to opportunities. are engaged on like. we front? of other front provide in bit

Dan Mondor
