The R7072 from SIMCom is an LPWA Module that supports LTE Cat-NB/GPRS, frequency bands. It delivers an uplink data rate of 15.625 Kbps (Cat-NB), 171.2 Kbps (GPRS), and a downlink data rate of 127 Kbps (Cat-NB), 21.25 Kbps (GPRS). This module requires a DC supply from 3.4 to 4.2 V, consumes 11 mA in GSM mode and 0.7 mA of current in sleep mode. It has PSM and eDRX power-saving features that reduce current consumption to 0.8 mA (eDRX) and 4.5 μA (PSM). This module can be controlled via UART, SIM, I2C, GPIO, and ADC interfaces. It is available in an LCC package that measures 24 x 24 mm and is ideal for metering, asset tracking, remote monitoring, E-health, and other M2M applications.
