February 05, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
u-blox’ SARA-U201 is a very compact 3G/2G cellular module: at 16 x 26 x 3 mm, the 96-pin LGA-packaged device is the smallest cellular module supporting both 2G and 3G connectivity. It is also equipped with the latest 3G chipset for IoT applications.

Providing 5-band UMTS, quad-band GSM, and with global radio regulatory approvals, the voice and data capable SARA-U201 can be used in a range of industrial, automotive telematics, and consumer applications that must be able to operate on any 2G or 3G network in the world.

SARA-U201 is pin-to-pin and form factor compatible with its 2G counterpart SARA-G350. It includes UART and USB data communication interfaces and can be seamlessly combined with any u-blox GNSS modules and chips, thanks to its pre-integrated AssistNow client.

Software stack and protocol support includes a dual stack IPv4 / IPv6, embedded TCP/IP, Ethernet over USB and BIP/eSIM support.
