The 5G module range specifications bit more complicated to see the differences in our range, and some of the differences are in the details. For Australia networks then a good starting point is that the following have Telstra certification planned:
Module – Comment:
RM502Q-AE 4G CAT20 (SDX55) Telstra certified (May 2021)
RM500Q-AE 4G CAT16 (SDX55) Telstra certified (March 2022)
RM505Q-AE 4G CAT16 (SDX55) Extra frequency (L5) for GNSS. Telstra certified (March 2022)
RG500Q-EA (voice + data) (SDX55) Telstra certification: waiting for Telstra priority.
RG520N-EU (SDX62) initial stages
RG520N-TL similar to the above but less supported bands – submitted for certification at the same time.
These are all using the lower sub-6GHz bands that are being deployed now. The later mm-Wave bands for 5G have been auctioned in 2021, see separate link for this.
- LGA RG500Q-EA has 8 antenna ports.
- On live network currently only NSA mode is supported. Telstra SA mode is expected to be made live July 2022
