The new Telit Module has the following features

  • LTE Bands – B1 (2100Mhz) / B3 (1800Mhz) / B7 (2600Mhz) ¬†/ B8 (900Mhz) / B20 (800Mhz)
  • HSPA (HSDPA) – 21 Mbps
  • HSPA (HSUPA) 5.76 Mbps
  • UMTS – 384 Mbps
  • GSM / GPRS / EDGE – Dual band Europe (900 / 1800 Mhz)
  • UMTS / HSDPA / HSUPA – B1 / B8 (2100 / 900 Mhz)
  • EDGE – 236.8 Kbps
  • GPRS – 85.6 Kbps

Compared to the old Huawei Module

  • LTE (DL/UK) – 100 / 50 Mbps
  • LTE Bands – B1 / B2 / B3 / B5 / B7 / B8 / B20
  • HSPA (HSDPA) – 21 Mbps
  • HSPA (HSUPA) 5.76 Mbps
  • UMTS – 384 Mbps

  • UMTS / HSDPA / HSUPA – B1 / B2 / B5 / B8
  • EDGE – 236.8 Kbps
  • GPRS – 85.6 Kbps

So for 4G connectivity the main benefit is the move to a CAT4 module to hopefully provide better download speeds – of course your maximum download and upload speeds for the RUT950 4G Router will depend upon distance to 4G base Station and the number of simultaneous users and the mobile networks bandwidth and service restrictions.

Once Teltonika start production of the revised RUT950 4G Router then the old barrel style connector will no longer be available.  replacement power supplies will need to be specially ordered and are expected to be more expensive than the normal mains power supplies.
