Planegg, November 28th, 2018

Atlantik Elektronik, provider of innovative wireless solutions, will present the global LTE Cat. 4 module EG25-G from Quectel to provide global connectivity on up to 30 bands with LTE, 3G and 2G coverage all from a single SKU. This “all-in-one" module EG25-G will massively improve the efficiency of global IoT deployment at optimized cost. It 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.

Atlantik Elektronik introduces with the EG25-G from Quectel another LTE mobile module of Cat 4 category, which is suitable for M2M and IoT applications due to its industrial temperature range of -40°C to + 85°C. 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 150Mbps downlink and 50Mbps uplink peak data rates, with an optional GNSS receiver including GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo and QZSS to provide quick and accurate positioning.

Designed in a compact LGA form factor measuring 29.0×32.0×2.4mm, 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 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 devices with EG25-G inside can operate on networks of major global carriers like AT&T, Verizon, Telstra, Vodafone and T-Mobile. Moreover, EG25-G supports multi-carrier switch by detecting (U)SIM card.

"A growing number of today's IoT developers tend to design and manufacture devices that can operate globally with a single hardware design. The EG25-G was created to address such needs", said Ottmar Flach, General Manager Atlantik Elektronik. "We are pleased to see that customers will achieve simplified production and testing processes, and save distribution costs due to the need for just one single SKU", added Ottmar Flach.

Eval Kits of the LTE Cat 4 module EG25-G will be available in December at Atlantik Elektronik.
