Quectel Wireless Solutions, a global IoT solutions provider, announced recently that the firm is working with NVIDIA to integrate its 5G IoT modules with the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin, the global most powerful, compact and energy-efficient AI computing platform at the edge.
This partnership aims to offer global NVIDIA Jetson platform-based devices with a flexible, frictionless pathway to high-speed, reliable, and low-latency 5G communications capability.
Industry sources added that in recent testing based on an edge AI gateway from TZTEK, the integration of Quectel’s RM500Q series 5G Sub-6GHz module with the Jetson AGX Orin was successful, an outcome that will allow developers to significantly reduce development time and cost.
Additionally, the ready-to-use “Quectel 5G module + Jetson AGX Orin platform” combination will help simplify the device development, improve product stability and accelerate the time-to-market of customer terminals.
Industry sources added that the Artificial Intelligence IoT (AIoT) is becoming a new trend in IoT development, and demand for superior wireless connections as well as high compute power continues to surge in many essential sectors of the economy.
Quectel 5G modules and the Jetson AGX Orin platform, enable compute-intensive AIoT applications such as advanced robotics, unmanned ground vehicles, low-speed automated driving systems, and intelligent transportation to achieve multi-Gbps data rates as well as unprecedented edge computing performance of up to 275 trillion operations per second.
Quectel added that as a next step in deepening this collaboration in the AIoT era, Quectel is planning to also integrate its latest 5G Release 16 (R16) modules with the Jetson AGX Orin platform, providing new 5G R16 features of ultra-low latency, network slicing and 5G LAN which enable even higher performance. As such, OEM device makers adopting Quectel 5G and NVIDIA Jetson platform products will benefit from more secure, efficient, and stable mobile communication connections.
