Quectel considers the market potential of Cat-1, some of the use cases it best serves, and how it can be integrated into existing networks.
Quectel’s latest White Paper discusses why LTE Cat-1 is transforming cellular connectivity and how this technology is for all organizations planning global IoT deployment. The 450MHz band has been a sleeping giant, set aside for utilization in critical communications during the 2G and 3G eras. Now, however, interest has re-ignited because the bands around 450MHz support LTE CAT-M and NB-IoT, making this ideal for IoT applications.
This works incredibly well for companies that are looking to upgrade from 2G and 3G who need to select a specific technology or have a range of LTE standards. This also offers variations between these standards in bandwidth, data speeds, power consumption, and more. Helping companies determine the best use cases; between more data-intensive options like LTE Cat-4 and the less demanding NB-IoT sits LTE Cat-1.
By analyzing how Cat-1 compares with similar technologies and which circumstances may make it the best choice, we show how Cat-1 supports an extensive range of applications. From smart grids, connected mobility, and wireless payment. Whatever your organization’s needs, our portfolio of Cat-1 modules can provide you with the optimal link between device and network.
