They also have products supporting access to the high performance 4G and 5G networks.”

“This is a great addition to Anglia’s line card and complements our existing activities and portfolio of products. The engagement with a company of SIMCom’s stature and position in the market underlines Anglia’s commitment, strength and credibility in the M2M and IoT space.”

We are looking forward to a successful partnership.”

It has a range of modules covering 2G, 2G+GNSS Combo, 3G and 4G in standard form factors with sizes down to 17.6mm x 15.7mm allowing customers an easy migration path as they require more functionality or need to specify different modules for each territory.
