The NimbeLink NL-SW-LTE-QBG96 embedded modem offers LTE-M/NB-IoT connectivity for global applications with a fallback to 2G, as well as an integrated GPS/GNSS radio. The NL-SW-LTE-QBG96 is compatible with many of the world’s LTE-M and NB-IoT networks.

NimbeLink embedded modems dramatically reduce the cost, risks and timelines of IoT product development. With known-good RF engineering and fully validated software, NimbeLink allows you to focus on your application and not engineering cellular radios. Standardized connectivity gives you the flexibility to update and alternate radios for new geographies, carriers, and technologies. Further, our embedded modems are “End-Device Certified”, meaning your end product will not need to go through the complex process of carrier certification. This is critical for the first release of your product and each iteration as you obtain market feedback. NimbeLink modems significantly reduce time-to-market and are ideal for product development through large-scale production.
