Base Station Modules for 2/3/4G & Cat-M1

Highly integrated, frequency agile 2/3/4G and Cat-M1 IoT base station modules

The EXSINE range of GSM, UMTS, LTE and Cat-M1 Internet-of-Things base station modules are designed for integration into third-party products and systems including managed access and security solutions, test equipment, production line testing, military communications and conventional 3GPP-compliant cells.

All modules support rapid switching between radio-access technologies and multiple 3GPP frequency bands up to 6 GHz. Variants are available that support all bands and add multi-band filtering.

All signalling and user plane backhaul interfaces are standards-based (3GPP). Simple APIs are provided for management and fault reporting, allowing rapid and reliable integration. The modules may be supplied with on-board core network software for completely standalone operation.

In addition to operating as a base station, each module can run dedicated high- performance cellular network scanning software to provide rapid GSM, UMTS and LTE cell detection and system information decode of local cells. Please refer to the EXSINE Network Scanner Modules datasheet.
