Quectel Completes 5G mmWave Data Call Over Laptop

Quectel Wireless Solutions Co., Ltd., the leading global supplier of cellular and GNSS modules, has recently achieved the first millimeter wave (mmWave) NSA data call over a RM510Q-GL powered laptop in lab. As one of the industry’s first module vendor having completed successful 5G tests on customer devices, Quectel has proved to be a leader in offering high-quality 5G connections to OEMs throughout the world.

Featuring Qualcomm SDX55 modem, the RM510Q-GL 5G M.2 module supports Sub-6GHz and mmWave bands in both 5G SA/NSA operation modes. It covers nearly all the major carriers worldwide and is backward compatible with LTE-A and 3G networks. The module integrates multi-constellation GNSS receiver, eSIM and high-speed interfaces such as USB 3.1 and PCIe 3.0, and is ideal for globally deployed mobile devices including Always Connected PCs (ACPC), industrial PDAs and mobile gateways.

Besides mmWave, Quectel also completed a series of successful live 5G tests over a laptop on Sub-6GHz bands. At a two-day expo in Hefei during November 25-26, Quectel teamed up with LCFC (Hefei) Electronics Technology, the developer of a world-famous laptop manufacturer, and had multiple tests of a laptop on China Mobile Communications Group’s live 5G NR network. Random tests showed that the laptop delivered a downlink data rate of 649Mbps via Quectel RM500Q module.

“As one of the industry’s first 5G module vendors, Quectel is leading 5G commercialization with continuous breakthroughs in 5G. ACPC is among the first wave of 5G IoT applications and will greatly improve office efficiency. In the future, we will closely collaborate with ecosystem partners to accelerate commercial applications of 5G laptops and cloud office,” said Leo Yao, Senior Product Manager at Quectel.
