Quectel BG96

Quectel BG96 IoT Modem

BG96 is an LTE Cat M1/Cat NB1/EGPRS module offering maximum data rates of 375 kbps downlink and uplink. It features global frequency bands, ultra-low power consumption, and is compatible with Quectel LTE Standard module EG91/EG95, LPWA module BC95-G/BG95, UMTS/HSPA module UG95/UG96 and GSM/GPRS module M95.

With a cost-effective SMT form factor of 26.5 × 22.5 × 2.3 mm and high integration level, BG96 enables integrators and developers to easily design their applications and take advantage from the module's low power consumption and mechanical intensity. Its advanced LGA package allows fully automated manufacturing for high-volume applications. 

A rich set of Internet protocols, industry-standard interfaces (USB/UART/I2C/Status Indicator) and abundant functionalities (USB drivers for Windows 7/8/8.1/10, Linux and Android) extend the applicability of the module to a wide range of M2M applications such as wireless POS, smart metering, tracking, etc.
