Over the past two decades, we have witnessed the evolution of mobile communications from 1G to 4G LTE. Looking at the entire process, you can see that key communication technologies have changed and the amount of information processed has radically increased. 5G technology will bring users a new experience in the form of even higher transmission speeds (10 times greater than 4G LTE). Such a technological leap places new requirements also for modules designed for 5G.
How fast is 5g LTE?
In addition to providing faster connections and greater bandwidth, a very important advantage of 5G is the short response time known as latency. Latency is the amount of time devices takes to respond to each other on the wireless network. 3G networks had a typical response time of 100 milliseconds, 4G is around 30 milliseconds, and 5G is just 1 millisecond. It is virtually instantaneous opening of a new world of connected applications.
|3G||≈ 100 milliseconds|
|4G||≈ 30 milliseconds|
|5G||≤ 1 milliseconds|
5G modules – choose the perfect version for your application
SimCom offers czfour types of 5G modules. Each of them is a multi-band 5G NR / LTE-FDD / LTE-TDD / HSPA solution that supports data transfers up to 4.0 Gb / s (SIM8200EA and SIM8200G), 7 Gb / s (SIM8300G-M2) and 2.4 Gb / s (SIM8202G-M2).
All modules are highly expandable thanks to rich interfaces, including PCIe, USB3.1, GPIO etc. The modules provide great flexibility and easy integration with customer applications. They are designed for applications requiring high data throughput in various radio transmission conditions. Thanks to their unique combination of performance, safety and flexibility, they are ideal for many applications, including smart city or smart home applications.
SIM8200G, , which is also multi-band, has a number of built-in interfaces and is highly expandable thanks to the LGA housing, and AT commands are compatible with SIM8300 series modules. In SIM8200EA-M2, SIM8300G-M2 and SIM8202G-M2 modules, AT commands are mostly compatible with 4G modules of SIM7912 / SIM7920 series. It also minimizes customer investment and ensures a short time-to-market.
