Quectel EC21 Mini PCIe is a series of LTE category 1 module adopting standard PCI Express® MiniCard form factor (Mini PCIe). Especially optimized for M2M and IoT applications, it features cost-saving, low power LTE connectivity, and delivers M2M-optimized speeds of 10Mbit/s downlink and 5Mbit/s uplink. These make it ideal for numerous IoT applications that are not reliant on high speed connectivity but still require the longevity and reliability of LTE networks.

Quectel EC21 Mini PCIe contains 7 variants: EC21-V Mini PCIe, EC21-A Mini PCIe, EC21-AU Mini PCIe, EC21-J Mini PCIe, EC21-KL Mini PCIe, EC21-AUT Mini PCIe and EC21-E Mini PCIe. This makes it backward-compatible with existing EDGE and GSM/GPRS networks, ensuring that it can easily migrate from LTE to 2G or 3G networks.

Quectel EC21 Mini PCIe supports Qualcomm® IZat™ location technology Gen8C Lite (GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo and QZSS). The integrated GNSS greatly simplifies product design, and provides quicker, more accurate and more dependable positioning.

A rich set of Internet protocols, industry-standard interfaces and abundant functionalities (USB drivers for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7/8/8.1/10, Linux, Android/eCall) extend the applicability of the module to a wide range of M2M applications such as smart metering, tracking and tracing, fleet management, wearable devices, smart home gateways, digital signs, and even drones.
