The RAK2013 is a Raspberry Pi 3B+ edition cellular communications module that supports Low-Power Wide- Area (LPWA) technology for networking Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices. It can support optional BG96 / EG91 / EG95 for 4G/LTE, NB-IoT, CAT-M, CAT1 or CAT 4 cellular protocol. The RAK2013 integrates audio codec and audio amplifier on it, with carrier operator’s network, it also supports Voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) for high definition (HD) and uninterrupted voice calls. For easy use, there are earphone connector, MIC connector and speaker connector with audio amplifier.

It also supports a connector to extend sensor board. The sensor board connector follows MikroBus standard, MikroBus has many kinds of the sensor board, such as temperature, humidity, 3 axis sensors, light sensor, etc. It is easy to get sensor data thought MikroBus interface and can transmit the sensor data through a cellular network to your server.

The RAK2013 can connect to RAK2245 Pi Hat board directly, which is RAK’s concentrator module for LoRa® following Raspberry Pi 3B+ edition. It is easy to make a LoRaWAN® gateway by plugging them to a Raspberry Pi board, it can transmit LoRa® data to cloud server by a cellular network.
