Coming soon LTE-A Cat 12/Cat 18.
With the 5G era approaching, increasing number of IoT verticals are requiring higher data rates and lower-latency, with LTE-Advanced technology undoubtedly being the very technology which can perfectly satisfy the requirements.
Currently, Quectel LTE-A modules have entered mass production stage and gained global certifications, and are ready for large-scale deployment in innovative broadband applications springing up quickly in the European countries.
Quectel is offering three LTE Cat 6 modules in different form factors, which are EG06 in LGA form factor, EM06 in M.2 form factor and EP06 in Mini PCIe form factor, respectively.
Adopting the 3GPP Rel. 12 LTE technology, all the three products deliver M2M-optimized speeds of 300Mbps downlink and 50Mbps uplink peak data rates, and can be ideally employed in IoT segments requesting mass data transmission such as gateway, video monitoring and digital signage.
The Cat 12 and Cat 16 modules will be compatible with existing Cat 6 modules, making sure that customers can migrate between different categories in the future.
In the past year, global 4G LTE coverage saw great improvements with more than 200 operators having deployed Cat 6 networks. The wide LTE network coverage and fast connectivity guarantees that IoT devices can connect in many countries even in some remote areas.
