Quectel says that the BG95 is the first cellular module, based on the cutting-edge Qualcomm® 9205 LTE modem, to be integrated with Microsoft's Azure Device SDK. As a result, customers can easily connect their BG95 devices to the Microsoft Azure cloud where they can build, manage, and deploy IoT solutions at scale, significantly accelerating time to market.
Aimed at global markets, the BG95 module is a cost-optimized, highly-integrated variant supporting Cat M1, Cat NB2, EGPRS and integrated GNSS. The module complies with 3GPP Release 14 and delivers improved capabilities in power consumption, data rates and hardware-based security.
By integrating RAM/flash, an ARM Cortex A7 processor supporting ThreadX, the BG95 is engineered to reduce power consumption significantly in idle mode. By doing this the BG95 has the potential to support decade-plus battery life, which is critical for IoT devices serving long life spans, such as asset trackers, smart meters, smart city sensors, home security and wearable trackers.
