Description

This LTE Modem Kit is the easiest way to get a mobile LTE connection to Raspberry Pi-based IoT projects. We’ve bundled all the hardware and accessories you need in a single kit! It features a pre-certified carrier board, the Sixfab Base HAT with an industry-proven design, so you can get your product to market much quicker.
Sixfab Cellular Modem Kit is compatible with a variety of Raspberry Pi boards from Raspberry Pi 4 to Raspberry Pi Zero W*. This kit is also available as part of Sixfab’s CORE platform which is designed for IoT applications in which the device’s mobile network connection needs to be constantly available and stable. With Sixfab CORE, no need for external modem protocols and endless configuration. It installs and handles all the settings automatically on the operating system and LTE modem. It can speed up the time it takes for you to launch your product, as well as make integrating WiFi, ethernet and cellular communication easier.
Buying a data SIM card for IoT is a complex task. An average user has to first research different providers, plans, and features and then buy the SIM card from a vendor. After that, a user has to install the SIM card and configure it, has to search for cellular connectivity across the globe and manually set it up. Introducing Sixfab SIM Card, which manages and supports all your cellular connectivity needs. It is for connected applications that can use LTE modem modules with the best global networks. You can activate it in a few seconds and start using it right away. All the settings are automated with Sixfab CORE and you can start using the internet in Raspberry Pi across the world with flexible data rates and plans. The Kit features a $25 data credit to start connection right out of the box without the need for signing contracts or submitting payment methods.

Raspberry Pi 3G/4G & LTE Base HAT

The Sixfab 3G/4G& LTE Base HAT grants your Raspberry Pi or 40-pin Pi compatible single-board-computer a super-simple interface bridge between mini PCIe cellular modems. With the modems you insert into Base HAT, your Raspberry Pi based projects will access data networks all around the world. This Base HAT enables narrow-bandwidth to high-bandwidth cellular connectivity on your remote devices i.e from low-power consumption LTE-M to ultra-high-speed LTE-Advanced mini PCIe modules are supported. Both UART and USB communication with modules is available on the HAT.

Features

  • Fully compatible with Raspberry Pi models that have the 40-pin GPIO header (4, 3, 2, A+). Raspberry Pi Zero may lack performance.
  • Easy-to-use, simple setup.
  • Clip-in Mini PCIe socket is compatible with worldwide LTE, UMTS/HSPA+ and GSM/GPRS/EDGE coverage with regional or global modules which work with different frequencies & carriers.
  • Micro SIM Card socket can easily reachable on the upside of the HAT.
  • It can be used standalone with PC/Laptop over micro USB, without stacking with Raspberry Pi.
  • The HAT can be powered from an external 5V source by exposed power pins, directly from Raspberry Pi 5V GPIO headers, via micro USB, or optional JST connector on the bottom of the board.
  • Efficient and low quiescent current power circuits can hold up to 3Amps.
  • Optional Send/Receive AT commands over Raspberry Pi UART or USB port is available
  • Taking the module into the Airplane mode, resetting module functions can be accessible over GPIO pins.
  • The power of the whole board electronics can be disabled for low-power consumption use cases.
  • The modules have built-in GNSS(GPS/GLONASS) receivers for your location-based applications.
  • Micro USB is used to connect the modem, it transmits data through the cable to the Raspberry Pi.
  • Working temperature range: -25°C ~ 70°C.

    Amazing kit! Assembled in no time (check raspberrypi official tutorial how to setup your rpi board. I have used model 3, but the tutorial is same for model 4: https://projects.raspberrypi.org/en/projects/raspberry-pi-setting-up), run all commands as described in documentation here: https://docs.sixfab.com/docs/raspberry-pi-3g-4g-lte-base-shield-getting-started using QMI interface. And voila – it works!!! My school dream came true – IOT with NO Borders!!!
    I am getting LTE 30/30 Down/Up speed – AMAZING!
    Thank you Sixfab for amazing product and clear instructions! Definitely will look for another cool stuff from you!
    Best,
    Slava

    Great kit. Simple to assemble but SixFab does not provide the standoffs or screws. It’s the little things that make the difference. I highly recommend their Raspberry Pi 4 hats.

    This is a good little kit and works very well. Two things to note:
    1. Use the short, supplied USB cable that comes with the kit. I tried a longer, heavier duty cable and the kernel complained with USB issues. Also, connectivity became intermittent. I tried this with various USB cables (all good quality) and it came down to length.
    2. If using Verizon with the LE910C1-NF, be sure to issue an AT+FWSWITCH=2 to enable the Verizon configuration (it is set up for AT&T by default). You just need to do this once as it is stored in the modem.
    All in all, a nice kit and I like that it doesn’t interfere with other boards on the RPi stack.
