The LTE Cat4 is, in the same way as LTE Cat1 – 3GPP Release 8, also relying on the existing 4G LTE network, which will not require additional investment on the network operator. The main difference to LTE Cat1, is the data transmission rate, where LTE Cat4 allows higher maximum transmission rates; downlink 150Mb/s and uplink 50Mb/s. LTE Cat 4 will be suitable for devices requiring higher transmission rate; telematics, autonomous driving, drones, V2X, fleet etc.
Amphenol’s high-quality LTE Cat4 module, A5210EA-GVD2A1, ensures the high demand of transmission rate, low power consumption, but still comes in a compact size and affordable price. Chipset is from ASR.
