To secure a wireless high speed connection without interferences for router and gateways, indoor and outdoor customer premises equipment (CPE), video broadcasting and surveillance, the FN980m is a UK.5G/TLE M.2 card by Telit. It is now available from Rutronik UK.

The FN980 features both the Sub-6 and the mmWave frequency bands with 5G, LTE, WCDMA and GNSS support.

The M.2 card is compatible with the 3GPP Release 15 and supports the common 5G Sub-6GHz frequency division duplexing (FDD) and time division duplexing (TDD) as well as the new mmWave frequency bands. It is also suitable for 5G standalone (SA) and 5G non-standalone (NSA) systems, to build a bridge from LTE to 5G. The M.2 card convinces with 5G downlink/uplink (DL/UL) data rates of 5.5/2.7Gbits per second.

The FN980m has voice over LTE (VoLTE) four voice and sound quality and voice over new radio (VoNR) for 5G standard is currently under evaluation which will facilitate an almost completely distortion-free and realistic transmission of the human voice, says Rutronik UK. The Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver supports the gpsOne Gen9 L1 band, for commercial applications. Four antenna connectors are available for LTE/Sub-6GHz bands and another four connectors for mmWave antennae (Qualcomm QTM525/QTM527).
