Previously we have used GPRS shield to establish internet connection. Now we will use 3G, 4G/LTE shield for PPP internet connection. In order to make a 3G and 4G connection we will need to use Quectel UC20 and Quectel EC25 modules respectively.
As this tutorial is for 3G-4G/LTE PPP Internet connection, we will use Quectel UC20 3G module or Quectel EC25 4G/LTE module, which are series of powerful function UMTS/HSPA+ module and series of LTE category 4 module optimized specially for M2M, IoT and multimedia applications respectively. Due to rich set of protocols, industry-standard interfaces and abundant functionalities extend the applicability of the module ti a wide range of M2M and IoT applications such as industrial router, industrial PDA, rugged tablet PC, video surveillance and digital signage.
Sixfab GSM/GPRS Shield is using Quectel M66 GSM/GPRS module. It bears the optimal performance in SMS, Data transmission and audio service. Due to the small size(equal to size of raspberry pi zero) it is easily embeddable in any project like video streamer, establishing Internet connection, security systems, tracking system etc.
