Quectel launches connectivity module with iSIM support in Asia Pacific


IoT solutions provider Quectel has launched its BG773A-GL LTE Cat M1, NB1 and NB2 module, offering integrated sim support to simplify IoT deployments in Asia Pacific.

Quectel says the iSIM of the newly-launched module provides flexibility for integrators and IoT service providers.

It simplifies customer deployments that previously would have needed to have a local-market traditional SIM card installed and managed.

The module, once powered up, will attach to the best available network, according to Quectel.

“Our focus is on providing commercial flexibility for our customers to ensure they receive high-quality connectivity that enables their IoT solutions regardless of where they are located in the world. Using self-optimising tariffs, we can minimise the risk of additional charges when issues such as over-the-air (OTA) software updates utilise extra bandwidth and therefore prevent bill shock,” comments Quectel director of global connectivity Richard Hart.

Quectel has experience in connectivity as it claims it has global expertise in modules and antennas. Its QuecConnectivity platform manages more than 30 million SIMs in Asia.

“Our module and antenna offering can now be combined with Connectivity-as-a-Service providing customers a single point of entry to Quectel’s full portfolio of products and services,” says Quectel vice president sales APAC and ANZ Michael Wallon.

“By adding connectivity to our capabilities, Quectel is reducing complexity for our customers by simplifying and accelerating IoT device deployment," concludes Quectel CEO Patrick Qian Quectel CEO Patrick Qian.

Quectel is available now in more than 190 countries via over 500 network operators, and currently provides 2G, 3G, 4G, NB-IoT and Cat-M connections.

The company is available to the whole market and will particularly benefit from deployments that can realise accelerated time-to-market and optimised business efficiencies from using a single supplier for module, antenna and connectivity.
