SHANGHAI, Nov. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Quectel( Wireless Solutions today announced the 
integration of the Qualcomm(R) 212 LTE IoT Modem from Qualcomm Technologies, 
Inc. into Quectel's BC660K-GL( 
high-performance LTE Cat NB2 narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) module. The module, which 
is pending certification with leading global carriers, offers extremely 
low-power consumption and supports multiple frequency bands.

Quectel's module has an ultra-compact profile of 17.7 mm × 15.8 mm × 2.0 mm 
and, because the module is designed to be compatible with Quectel's GSM/GPRS

for migrating from GSM/GPRS to NB-IoT networks.

With NB-IoT networks rolling out globally, a growing number of IoT applications 
are selecting the technology. Quectel has therefore developed the BC660K-GL 
module to address the needs of chipset manufacturers for large-scale 
manufacturing with strict cost and efficiency requirements.
