Advantech has launched a 5G module to boost the rollout of AI systems in the Internet of Things (AIoT)
The AIW-355 from Advantech Industrial Wireless (AIW) is designed for AIoT solutions that require ubiquitous connectivity, dynamic mobility, and security in edge computing devices, mobile gateways, and diverse globally deployed mobile devices.
AIW-355 uses 5G to provide a ten fold increase in speed of 10 Gbit/s compared to 1 Gbit/s for 4G and supports connection to up to a million devices per square kilometer. In addition, 5G enables a 100 fold increase in capacity, a 10 fold decrease in latency, and drops latency to 1ms compared to 10 ~ 20ms for 4G.

The AIW-355 uses the Snapdragon X55 5G modem and supports 5G NR SUB6 frequencies in both 5G standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) operations. It is compatible with LTE and WCDMA standards; and is backwards compatible with LTE-A and 3G networks. AIW-355 helps optimize customer investment at the initial stage of 5G construction and accommodates emerging market demands.
The module is built with a M.2 3052 form-factor and M.2 Key B USB interface. This M.2 module accommodates most mainstream carriers and eases 5G integration. AIW-355 also integrates a multi-constellation GNSS receiver and USB 3.1 high-speed interfaces.
The AIW-355 provides the 5G capabilities needed to support city-based video surveillance systems that require high-speed transmission and low latency. 5G meets these needs while supporting innovative information technologies that improve government response times. In short, AIW-355 is capable of augmenting the efficiency of public security infrastructure.
The scope of security monitoring applications has expanded to include the use of dimensional monitoring data and real-time vehicle monitoring. The AIW-355 also accommodates these applications while helping enterprises reduce costs by efficiently monitoring restricted, potentially dangerous areas.
Three versions of AIW-355 are available for applications in North America, Europe, and China. Every version supports both 5G SA and NSA network architectures and delivers faster transmission speeds, better carrying capacities, and lower network latency. Each model can operate in broad temperature ranges (-30 ~ 75 °C/-22 ~ 167 °F) and is compatible with Windows and Linux.
