Quectel Wireless Solutions today announced that on September 25, it has completed the industry’s first 5G data call over its 5G millimeter wave (mmWave) module that fully complies with 3GPP Release 15 5G NR standards.
The 5G data call was made over Quectel RM510Q-GL 5G module based on Keysight’s 5G testing device in a lab, which will pave the way for the upcoming 5G mmWave field tests and commercial deployment of 5G IoT projects. In addition, the move is a testament to Quectel’s leadership in 5G R&D capability and IoT innovations.
Tailored for IoT/eMBB applications, Quectel RM510Q-GL features the Snapdragon X55 5G Modem and supports mmWave and Sub-6GHz frequencies in both 5G Standalone (SA) and Non-Standalone (NSA) operations. The M.2 module covers nearly all the mainstream carriers worldwide.
Designed backward compatible with LTE-A and 3G networks, RM510Q-GL integrates multi-constellation GNSS receiver, eSIM, as well as high-speed interfaces such as USB 3.1 and PCIe 3.0, which make it suitable for globally deployed mobile devices including Always Connected PCs (ACPC), industrial PDAs, mobile gateways and more.
AsusTek Computer Inc., a Taipei-based multinational computer company, is planning to use RM510Q-GL for its next-generation 5G mmWave laptops, according to Quectel. Leveraging its industry leading 5G modules and local technical support, Quectel will accelerate the time-to-market for AsusTek to enhance its competitiveness in the 5G era.
