Technical Specification

Connect almost any device to the cloud over cellular

The dongle integrates a modem and antenna, powered by the host 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.

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 in the 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.

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