The EG91 series from Quectel are LTE Cat1 Modules optimized for M2M and IoT applications. They support 3GPP Rel. 11 LTE technology along with an optional GNSS capability. They deliver maximum data rates up to 10 Mbps downlink and 5 Mbps uplink. The EG91 products are available in 6 variants: EG91-E, EG91-EX, EG91-NA, EG91-NS, EG91-VX, and EG91-NAX. These modules are pin-to-pin compatible with Quectel UMTS/HSPA+ module UG95/UG96 and LPWA module BG95/BG96. The modules are backward-compatible with existing GSM/GPRS and UMTS/HSPA+ networks, ensuring that they can be used even in remote areas devoid of 4G network coverage.
These SMT modules (29.0 × 25.0 × 2.3mm) hold carrier certifications from Deutsche Telekom/ Verizon/ AT&T/ T-Mobile/ U.S. Cellular/ Rogers/ Telus/ Sprint and regulatory certifications from GCF/ CE/ RCM/ FAC/ Anatel/ FCC/ PTCRB/ IC. The modules come with a rich set of internet protocols and interfaces (USB serial drivers for Windows 7/8/10, Linux and Android, etc.), which extend their applicability to a wide range of M2M and IoT devices like smart metering, wearable devices, environmental monitoring, asset tracking, fleet management, security, alarm systems, and so on.
