With a range of interface options and an integrated IP stack, the modules are designed to support a wide range of data-centric applications. The unique combination of performance and flexibility make these modules ideally suited for medium speed M2M applications, such as smart energy gateways, remote access video cameras, digital signage, telehealth, and telematics.
The board has a rich set of components to simplify development: two SMA connectors, a MicroUSB port, as well as a SIM card slot.The LARA-R211 module specifies data rates of up to 10.3 Mb/s for Download, and 5.2 Mb/s for Upload. The network protocol stack includes support for TCP, UDP, PPP, MMS, FTP, SMTP, SMTPS, HTTP, HTTPS, PING, and SSL. It covers following LTE bands: 3, 7, 20.
u-blox offers m-centre, a free evaluation software for all their cellular modules. It is an easy to use graphical interface where you can configure the module and save the changes on EPROM. You can also view and edit SIM phonebook entries, send text messages, and communicate with the wireless module using AT commands.
Simply put 4G is the fourth generation of the cellular network standard. This fourth generation does not support traditional circuit-switched telephony service, but all IP based communication such as IP telephony.
LTE or Long Term Evolution, or 4G LTE as it is most commonly called has different categories defined. There are nine different ones so far. LARA-R211 module supports the LTE Cat 1.
