Quectel Unveils Ultra-High-Speed LTE Cat 18 Module

Quectel Wireless has launched an LTE Category 18 module, which is among the first true high-speed modules that offer 1.2Gbps Downlink /150Mbps Uplink peak rates. The EG18 is based on Qualcomm's SDX20 chipset and is fully compliant with 3GPP R12 specification. It supports state-of-the-art wireless technologies such as Carrier Aggregation (CA), 4x4 MIMO technology as well as 256QAM.

Quectel EG18 is a series of LTE Advanced modules optimized specially for M2M and IoT applications which support industrial operating temperature range of -40 to 85˚C. It supports Qualcomm IZat location technology Gen8C Lite (GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo and QZSS). Integrated GNSS technology greatly simplifies product design, and provides quicker, more accurate and more dependable positioning capability.

The EG18 is going to be an ideal choice for ultra-high-speed Industrial Routers, In-Vehicle Video Surveillance Systems, Cloud-based 4K IP-Cameras and many other similar applications, which require very high throughput and low latency.
