Technical Specifications

Integrates a modem and antenna, powered by the USB port >

This means no extra accessories nor power supply are required to get the host device online. Two CRC9 connectors also allow external antenna connection. In a bad radio environment, you may extend out cables and place antennas away from the host device for better connectivity.

Radio-certified as an end product >

The device satisfies all network & RF requirements for cellular connectivity by itself, which makes it radio-certified as an end product. By using the Onyx LTE™ USB hardware, you can avoid getting additional radio certifications and immediately deploy your IoT system in the field.

The device is ready for global use with a Soracom SIM >

The embedded modem features global LTE band coverage and radio certifications for global use. This single SKU + our global SIM can provide connectivity almost anywhere in the world, without having to modify the system.

Please note the end product certification is limited to FCC/TELEC/PTCRB/CE*. Depending on the usage & region, you may need additional certification as an end product.

Natively supports multiple application protocols >
