Difference between globallink 520 and GX LTE 4G

I'm using a cerbo GX and I'm looking at a way to connect my system to the cellular network.

In the description of the globallink 520 it says that it comes with a 5 year sim-card.

1. Does the GX LTE 4G come with a similar 5 year sim-card?

Or since the globallink 520 is about the same price as the GX LTE 4G.

2. Can u use the globallink 520 with the Cerbo GX?


Thank you guys in advance for the help!

Thanks for the answers!


As I see it, this way the GX LTE 4G is a way more expensive solution then the globallink. Do you have any clue where this price difference is coming from?

They are completely different devices and can not be compared with each other. Each has its own purpose.

A GX LTE 4G is a modem specifically for GX devices that have no other way to connect to the Internet. In doing so, it does not limit the connectivity of the GX device itself.

The purpose of the GlobalLink 520 is to provide connectivity (via LTE-M - not to be confused with LTE 4G, 2 VE.Direct ports, BLE, VRM) for small off-grid systems without a GX device.
