Single LTE Module Enables Global Deployment with Support for Up to 30 Bands

Quectel Wireless Solutions has launched the first LTE Cat 4 module that provides global connectivity on up to 30 bands with LTE, 3G and 2G coverage all from a single Stock Keeping Unit (SKU). The EG25-G is the latest addition to Quectel's comprehensive LTE portfolio based on Qualcomm MDM9x07 chipset. Adopting the 3GPP Release 11 LTE technology, it delivers 150 Mbps downlink and 50 Mbps uplink peak data rates, with an optional GNSS receiver including GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo and QZSS to provide quick and accurate positioning.

The new module supports FDD LTE frequency bands of B1, B2, B3, B4, B5, B7, B8, B12, B13, B18, B19, B20, B25, B26, B28, TDD LTE bands of B38, B39, B40, B41, WCDMA bands of B1/B2/B4/B5/B6/B8/B19 and quad-band GSM/EDGE. This ensures products built with the EG25-G can operate on networks of major global carriers like AT&T, Verizon, Telstra, Vodafone and T-Mobile. Moreover, the EG25-G supports multi-carrier switching by detecting the (U)SIM card.

Designed in a compact LGA form factor measuring 29 x 32 x 2.4 mm, EG25-G is pin-compatible with Quectel's best-selling EC2X family, allowing flexible migration. It also offers Mini PCIe form factor with built-in sim card holder, which will bring better plug-and-play experience.

The EG25-G boasts a rich set of Internet protocols, industry-standard interfaces, abundant functionalities and extended life cycle, and is ideal for verticals including industrial routers, industrial PDA and video surveillance.

Quectel will debut this module at the upcoming MWC Americas. Click here for more information on this module.
