What you see on the picture above is A13-SOM-LTE shield which enables 100 Mbit 4G Internet access to A13-SOM.

The LTE shield is specially designed for 4G module from partner we work with. This is the first prototype and some tests should be completed but it’s matter of weeks or months these modules to be released. We still have no price on the 4G module as these are very new but we are assured to have them on the very low cost, so with A13-SOM to enable wearable cloud technology.

100Mbit is enough to listen music, watch videos, log large amounts of data to cloud storage.

 

A13-SOM-LTE shield is OSHW, the schematic and CAD files are on GitHub.

The low cost EUR 15 makes all these old GSM/GPRS solutions with Telit/Simcom etc look expensive, slow and obsolete.

Jann Christian made amazing project which could be base for Internet-Of-Things with iMX233-OLinuXino-MICRO and 3G modem  http://www.jann.cc/2012/12/16/using_the_olinuxino_micro_and_a_usb_3g_modem_to_control_something_via_web.html

with the 3G modem you can implement IoT on places where WIFI and Wired Ethernet is missing, i.e. adding remote control to your far away in the mountains summer house and switching on/off things remotely.
