Quectel Wireless Solutions has released their second generation 5G new radio (NR) modules that comply with the 3GPP Release 16 standards. These include the sub-6GHz modules Rx520F and the Rx520N series as well as the RM530x series of mmWave modules.

The 5G NR modules are designed to satisfy the needs of industries that require enhanced mobile broadband and reliable communication capabilities. The modules will also speed up the commercialization of 5G technologies and bring the benefits of mobile broadband to typical scenarios including Fixed Wireless Access (FWA), IIoT, mobile compute, telemedicine, private networks, and more.

Quectel’s latest 5G NR sub-6GHz modules include the RG520F (LGA form factor), the RM520F (M.2) based on Snapdragon X65, and the RG520N (LGA), the RM520N (M.2) based on Snapdragon X62. Supporting sub-6GHz and mmWave dual connectivity, the Quectel RM530F and RM530N modules (M.2) allow 5G IoT users to fully benefit from the large bandwidth of mmWave and the widespread coverage of sub-6GHz networks.

Further, the 5G modules support all three combinations of sub-6GHz time division duplex (TDD) and frequency division duplex (FDD) carrier aggregation (CA), including CA of FDD+TDD, FDD+FDD and TDD+TDD. This ensures greater 5G coverage, capacity and throughput by enabling the combination of available 5G spectrum assets.

Compared with prior modules, Quectel’s new-generation 5G products provide the important foundational enhancements to deliver even better link reliability and ultra-low latency, which is expected to accelerate the commercial deployment of 5G applications such as industrial IoT, factory automation and connected vehicles.

The high-end Snapdragon X65 based modules can support fiber-like peak download speeds up to 10 Gbps. The super-fast speed can address specific 5G eMBB use cases requiring extremely high data rates, such as 4K/8K ultra high definition (UHD) live steaming.

Quectel’s new 5G NR modules are expected to be available around the end of the year 2021.
