The GW16132 is a Mini-PCIe Radio card that provides cost-effective, low power cellular connectivity and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) for Internet of Things (IoT) networks. The GW16132 features a u- blox SARA-R410M LTE Cat M1 modem for low bandwidth cellular connectivity to the cloud. A nano- SIM socket is onboard. A Hologram IoT starter SIM is sold separately. The GW16132 also features u-blox NINA- B301 Bluetooth 5 Low Energy radio used for communicating with and reading BLE sensors. Both the cellular modem and BLE radio have dedicated separate u.Fl antenna connectors for connection to an external antenna. This radio card operates in any standard Mini-PCIe socket that includes a USB 2.0 interface. This radio card enables a Gateworks SBC as a remote IoT Cellular Gateway with the ability to communicate with BLE sensors.

* Note : GW16132 is a multi-regional version, GW16126 is a North America version (discontinued).
* Disclaimer: This card has only been tested on Gateworks Single Board Computers. Gateworks only provides support when used on a Gateworks SBC.
