The Arduino Portenta Cat. M1/NB IoT GNSS Shield allows you to elevate the connectivity features of Portenta H7 applications. The shield utilises a Cinterion TX62 wireless module by Thales, designed for super-efficient, low-power IoT applications to deliver unrivalled bandwidth and performance, while adding global connectivity and positioning capabilities to Portenta and MKR boards, making your applications smarter.
Combining the shield with the robust computing power of the Portenta H7 enables the development of positioning, asset tracking, and remote monitoring applications in industrial settings, agriculture, public utilities, and smart cities. Unleash a world of new opportunities for edge computing!
Add monitoring capabilities to any asset – the shield offers connectivity to both Cat.M1 and NB-IoT networks with the option to use eSIM technology. It’s ideal for monitoring and tracking valuable goods, or entire fleets of vehicles – across the world– with your choice of GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, or BeiDou positioning.
Connect data and automate actions – combine the Portenta H7 with the Portenta Cat. M1/NB IoT GNSS Shield to connect data and automate actions and truly optimise the use of resources, enhance user experience, and provide smart solutions.
Low-power, long-distance communications – designed for edge ML applications, the shield enables low-power, long-distance communications over NBIoT and CAT.M1 networks. Combined with the Portenta H7, the shield greatly reduces communication bandwidth requirements in your IoT applications.
Make your Industrial and agricultural applications smarter – the shield can be used to create solutions to monitor gas detectors, optical sensors, and machinery alarm systems remotely.
