AirPrime® WP8548 IoT Module

Reliable worldwide 3G IoT connectivity with 2G fallback

The WP8548 module is part of the WP Series offering a secure device-to-cloud architecture enabling IoT developers to build a Linux-based product on a single module - reducing overall system complexity and time-to-market.

3G technology is proven, reliable, widely deployed, and offers greater longevity compared to 2G while remaining relatively inexpensive compared to deploying on 4G LTE networks.

This embedded module delivers up to 42 Mbps download speed on any 3G network in the world and is ideal for IoT applications not requiring broadband connectivity such as smart meters, point-of-sale or ATM terminals, building automation, and rugged handhelds to name a few.
