Performance MTC Module (LTE Cat.1) Global

The PLS63-W offers a global approach to cost-optimized IoT connectivity, with 18 Band LTE Cat.1, Eight Band 3G HSPA/UMTS, and Quad-Band GSM for seamless coverage across multiple wireless networks. Alternatively, where a global solution is not required, a variety of regional variants with the latest network banding deliver targeted connectivity for North America, Europe and APAC, Latin America and Japan.

Global and Regional LTE coverage with fallback options:

  • LTE Cat 1, Global and multiple Regional variants with latest network bonds grouping
  • 3G and 2G fallback
