Globallink 520 nb-iot

Is it possible to provision the globallink 520 with a Nb-Iot sim , or even a standard 3G or 4G sim. Can it be bought with no sim ?


I know the sim is user replaceable but will the unit work on a standard 3 or 4G network , I can easily get m2m sims


I am in Greece and cosmote has decided to deploy NB-Iot not Lte-M have I any options ?


Love the product but picking a poorly rolled out specialised Iot modem over a standard 3G or 4G modem was seriously misguided , m2m sims can easily be got for standard 3G and 4G networks , I know cause I have them.

Sorry for the late reply. The internal modem could in theory support NB-IoT but would need a firmware update to do so and a different antenna which is not supported at the moment. I agree that normal 3G/4G has some benefits but also some downsides like frequency / antenna regional support, power usage, and price it is something we are exploring.

It can not be bought without a SIM at the moment but it is possible to replace the SIM but only for LTE-M networks.
