Quectel Introduces Commercial 5G Modules Featuring New Snapdragon X55 5G Modem

Quectel has released new commercial 5G IoT modules featuring the Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 5G modem and antenna modules with integrated RF transceiver, RF Front-End (RFFE) and antenna elements from Qualcomm. Compliant with 3GPP Release 15 specifications and capable of both 5G standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) modes of operation, Quectel's newly-launched 5G modules RG500Q/RG510Q and RM500Q/RM510Q are designed for enterprise and mobile broadband applications such as fixed wireless access, mobile hotspot devices, and public safety and surveillance applications.

Designed in an LGA form factor, the RG500Q supports the 5G NR sub-6 GHz while the RG510Q supports both 5G NR sub-6 GHz and mm-Wave spectrum bands. Variants of both modules also support LTE Category 12 or above and embedded GNSS capabilities, and target Asia-Pacific as well as Europe, Middle East and North America regions. Designed in M.2 form factor, the RM500Q supports the 5G NR sub-6 GHz while the RM510Q supports both 5G NR sub-6GHz and mmWave spectrum bands. Both modules also support LTE Category 22 connectivity with integrated GNSS and eSIM. The RM500Q and RM510Q are ideal for globally deployed mobile devices including Always Connected PCs (ACPC), industrial PDAs, mobile gateways and more.

With the great improvement in performance, spectrum efficiency and latency compared to current LTE modules, Quectel RG500Q/RG510Q and RM500Q/RM510Q 5G modules can provide a vastly more responsive connection between field devices and the 5G network, opening up the possibilities of an entirely new generation of high-speed mobile applications and services. As a leader in IoT and mobile module innovations, Quectel has been at the center of 5G technology commercialization and is currently working with global mobile network operators, Qualcomm Technologies and other ecosystem participants in making 5G-NR a reality.

The RG500Q and RM500Q 5G sub-6 GHz modules are being demonstrated at the MWC19 event in Barcelona at Quectel's booth 5C11 and Qualcomm booth, Hall 3, 3E10.
