Both modules support USB 2.0, full-duplex data rate of 153.6 Kpbs and extended operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C making them suitable platforms for mobile and fixed applications such as vending, point-of-sale (POS), tracking, smart metering, and telematics devices.These modules provide customers with a solid platform to develop, launch and operate new IoT products on Sprint’s proven and reliable CDMA 1xRTT network.
