With Quectel BG96 and Qualcomm MDM9206 LTE modem chipset at its core, the WisLink Cellular BG96 Arduino Shield is the industry leading compact embedded cellular modem. 

Simultaneously supports the tree cellular standards

  • 2G/EGPRS
  • 4G/LTE Cat-M1(eMTC)
  • Cat-NB1(NB-IoT)
  • GPS

Packed in Arduino shield form factor to leverage well-established Arduino ecosystem, it provides LPWA IoT cellular connectivity for MCU/MPU base boards on the market with Arduino headers. This gives IoT application developers desired flexibility to choose most suitable MCU/MPU for diverse IoT applications that require LPWA IoT cellular connectivity. 

Built-in tri-mode cellular network support allows IoT developers to jump start deployment of IoT applications with 2G/EGPRS network that is mature and widely available to seamlessly migrate to 4G/LTE Cat-M1 (eMTC), Cat-NB1 (NB-IoT) networks that are being deployed and maturing access the globe without any hardware chance. 

Added GPS support to couple with LPWA cellular connectivity allows easy adaption to popular IoT applications such as tracker, location base services (LBS), etc. 

Enhanced AT commands, built-in core protocol support and availability of basic drivers for major operating systems (Windows, Linux, android) significantly facilitate software development and system integration into any IoT applications.
