Quectel Leads Innovation in IoT Connectivity with Advanced Short-Range Modules

In an ambitious move to set new benchmarks in the Internet of Things (IoT) domain, Quectel Wireless Solutions, a forefront runner in global IoT services, has launched an impressive lineup of five cutting-edge modules. Engineered to elevate IoT connectivity through advanced Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies, these modules stand out for their exceptional performance, reliability, and adaptability, addressing the eclectic demands of IoT applications across the globe.

Norbert Muhrer, at the helm as President and CSO of Quectel, expressed his enthusiasm about revolutionizing short-range communication technologies. His vision is encapsulated in the unveiling of various modules, each uniquely designed to harness the power of lightning-fast Wi-Fi and robust Bluetooth connectivity. These innovations are meticulously engineered to drive IoT solutions to unparalleled levels of connectivity and operational efficiency.

The portfolio includes the FCS866R and FCE863R, both Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 enabled modules, boasting 2T2R capabilities and housed in an LCC format. These modules are remarkably compact, measuring 15.0mm × 13.0mm × 2.0mm and 15.0 mm × 13.0 mm × 2.2 mm, respectively, making them ideal for space-constrained applications. They promise rapid data transmission speeds, up to 1201Mbps, aimed at optimizing both size and cost for IoT devices.

The FCS866R is equipped with a dependable SDIO 3.0 interface for WLAN connectivity, guaranteeing both low-power consumption and high-speed data transmission. The FCE863R, on the other hand, employs a PCIe 1.1 interface for efficient and low-power WLAN wireless transmission needs. It’s also built to withstand industrial operating temperatures ranging from -40 to +85°C, ensuring reliability under extreme conditions.

Quectel’s commitment to merging efficiency with innovative design is further embodied in the FGS061N, another WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 module, which adheres to the IEEE 802.11ax standard protocol. This LGA packaged module supports a wide range of MCS rates and is capable of operating within an 80 MHz bandwidth with 1024QAM support, thus ensuring seamless WLAN functionality via a reliable SDIO 3.0 interface.

For applications requiring robust Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.2 connections, the FC906A module is a perfect fit. Packaged in LCC format, it navigates both WLAN and Bluetooth connections under the IEEE 806.11ac mode. With support for multiple MCS rates across various channel widths and a maximum data rate of 433.3 Mbps, this module guarantees compatibility across a broad spectrum of IoT applications.

The suite of modules is rounded off with the FCS945R, a dual-band Wi-Fi 4 and Bluetooth 5.2 module, which not only provides reliable WLAN and Bluetooth connections but does so in an incredibly compact form factor of 12.0mm × 12.0mm × 2.15mm. Designed to thrive in size-sensitive applications, it supports industrial temperature ranges, ensuring operational reliability in a variety of environments.

Together, these modules are designed to seamlessly integrate into size-constrained applications thanks to their LCC or LGA packaging and surface-mount technology (SMT). Quectel has placed a strong emphasis on security in the development of their IoT modules. Through incorporating lifecycle-wide best practices in product architecture and firmware/software development, the company aims to mitigate vulnerabilities effectively. This includes rigorous third-party testing and the integration of robust security measures such as Software Bill of Materials (SBOMs), Vulnerability Exploitability eXchange (VEX) files, and firmware binary analysis.

Quectel’s latest offerings not only underscore its commitment to driving the future of IoT connectivity but also reflect a deep understanding of the evolving needs of a connected world. By focusing on performance, versatility, and security, Quectel continues to pave the way for next-generation IoT solutions that promise to connect and enrich the world in unprecedented ways.
