Neoway – N58 LTE Cat.1bis Cellular Module

N58 LTE Cat.1bis

Depending on the application, different connectivity solutions are used in the Internet of Things. NB-IoT and LTE-Cat-M are two of the most common solutions for Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) mobile communications. However, one drawback is network coverage, which isn’t available globally. And it is not clear how the expansion of coverage for these technologies will develop in the future.

For LTE Cat.1 things look different. In the near future virtually every region in the world will be covered. However, standard LTE Cat.1 module have also some disadvantages compared to the LPWA solutions, e.g. in the antenna count, as LTE Cat.1 always needs two antennas.

This is where the LTE Cat.1bis standard comes into play. LTE Cat.1bis requires only one antenna, but apart from that corresponds to the LTE Cat.1 standard. This now brings the advantage of possible smaller devices as well as global coverage to IoT applications.

With the N58, Neoway offers a suitable LTE Cat.1bis module for the IoT sector. It has excellent RF performance and supports low power consumption as well as wide operating temperature range. In addition to LTE also Bluetooth and WiFi capabilities are prepared on board and will be implemented soon.
