Quad-E4G is a universal platform offering wide possibilities thanks to multiple expansion slots
Quad-E4G offers extensive expansion options and decent performance. Three mini PCIe slots with both PCIe and USB buses, equipped with SIM slots, allows assembling a wireless router with multiple WiFi or 4G modules.
An additional M.2 B-key slot makes it possible to create high-performance 4G/5G access point with LTE Cat. 6+. Five Gigabit Ethernet interfaces with hardware offload support will serve many end devices without the need to worry about throughput.
OpenWrt support and USB-based system serial console make development extremely easy.
