Quectel EC21 is a series of LTE category 1 module optimized specially
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 EC21 an ideal solution for numerous IoT applications
that are not reliant on high speed connectivity but still require the longevity
and reliability of LTE networks.
EC21 is compatible with Quectel UMTS/HSPA+ UC20 module and multi-mode
LTE EC20/EC25 module in the compact and unified form factor. It contains 9
variants: EC21-E, EC21-A, EC21-V, EC21-AUT, EC21-AUTL, EC21-J, EC21-KL, EC21-
AU and EC21-CT and the mini PCI-E card format. This makes it
backward-compatible with existing EDGE and GSM/GPRS networks, ensuring that it
can easily migrate to LTE from 2G or 3G networks.
EC21 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
A rich set of Internet protocols, industry-standard interfaces and
abundant functionalities (USB drivers for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7,
Windows 8/8.1, Windows 10, Linux, Android/eCall*) extend the applicability of
the module to a wide range of M2M and IoT applications such as smart metering,
wearable devices, environmental monitoring, asset tracking, fleet management,
security and alarm systems, and so on..
