SORACOM original LTE Cat.4 USB dongle with global band coverage.


SORACOM Onyx LTE USB dongle is a cellular modem providing connectivity on LTE Cat.4 / 3G / 2G networks. It is proven and works smoothly with SORACOM IoT SIM and various SORACOM platform services. The device is suitable for different M2M/IoT applications including smart agriculture, healthcare, tracking and remote management applications.

The device works on Windows/Linux/Android hosts. No driver installation necessary for most Linux system.

The dongle integrates modem and antenna, powered by the host USB port. Which 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.

The device satisfies all network & RF requirements for cellular connectivity by itself, which makes it radio-certified as an end product. Therefore with this dongle, you can avoid getting additional radio certifications and immediately deploy your IoT system on field.

The embedded modem features global LTE band coverage and various radio certifications, which means 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.

Built-in protocol stack supports TCP/UDP (client/server), HTTP, MQTT and others. With these built-in stack, the dongle allows host devices with limited capabilities to communicate with various applications.
