Product Overview

 

EB has built the LTE Connectivity Module to enable wireless broadband connectivity in almost any customer device or application.

The module supports several commercial frequency bands for global solutions, as well as special frequency bands for dedicated networks, such as LTE Band 14 for Public Safety / US FirstNet markets.

EB LTE Connectivity Module is integrated into an industry standard mini PCI Express form factor (30x51mm), or on a custom circuit board with board-to-board connector.

The module supports 4x2 MIMO technology, which provides data speeds up to 100Mbps in compatible LTE networks.

On top of versatile broadband data capabilities, the EB LTE Connectivity Module offers also support for digital and analog audio on 3G and 2G networks.
