The two modules are embedded with rich interfaces and incorporate high-speed USB 3.0/3.1, PCIe 3.0, U(SIM), RGMII and more, making them suitable for diversified industrial and consumer 5G applications such as industrial routers, robots, automation, intelligent manufacturing, smart cities, energy distribution, precision agriculture, construction and mining. In addition, the RG500S and RM500S integrate a multi-constellation GNSS receiver, which simplifies the product design and provides accurate positioning services for users.
"Quectel has long been collaborating with Qualcomm Technologies to support the enablement of the 5G market in IoT," said Patrick Qian, CEO, Quectel. "Based on the latest Qualcomm 315 5G IoT Modem, the RG500S and RM500S are able to offer greater possibilities for the industrial and commercial IoT verticals. Features such as high performance and low latency as well as extended life software maintenance address the existing IoT market needs and can power a range of new 5G IoT use cases."
"The Qualcomm 315 5G IoT modem solution was introduced to stimulate and scale the 5G IoT industry and enable the transitions needed to make 5G for IoT a reality. This solution is pin to pin compatible with legacy modules, which can accelerate device development and commercialization and promote growth and expansion in the 5G IoT industry. Integrating Qualcomm Technologies purpose-built modem into Quectel's RG500S and RM500S modules will help deliver 5G to the IoT industry across industrial and enterprise applications," said Jeffery Torrance, senior vice president, product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
