5G Modules for Australia

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.

  • Note:
  • 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
