California-based Cavli Wireless plans to introduce a 5G redcap cellular IoT module alongside its flagship Android module at next week’s Embedded World in Nuremberg.

The CQM220 redcap and CQS290 Android modules are said to redefine smart connectivity with high-speed data, graphics and versatile designs for industrial and automotive applications.

Embedded World ( from April 9 to 11 is known for being the largest trade fair for embedded technology, showcasing the latest in electronic systems, distributed intelligence, IoT, energy efficiency and more.

The CQM220 is compatible with 3GPP release 17 standards, designed for IoT and M2M applications. It delivers robust data bandwidth, reaching up to 226Mbit/s in downlink and 121Mbit/s in uplink, facilitating rapid and efficient data transfer. Available in LGA, mPCIe and M.2 form factors, it ensures broad compatibility and flexibility across various industrial applications. Its optional integrated eSIM offers global connectivity through the Cavli Hubble device and connectivity management platform, making it versatile for international deployment.

The CQM220 (, with its in-built GNSS, high data throughput and Linux-based OpenSDK, suits asset tracking, vehicular telemetry, Industry 4.0 and smart city initiatives. Its capability for application-specific coding directly on the device, combined with global operability, positions it for applications requiring speed, accuracy and worldwide functionality.

In Industry 4.0, it enables real-time machinery monitoring and predictive maintenance, while in smart cities, it supports intelligent transportation and public safety networks. For asset tracking, its precise GNSS and robust connectivity offer location tracking, crucial for logistics and theft prevention.

The CQS290 ( is a flagship series of LTE Cat 4 Android smart modules with 2G fallback capability. The module is powered by Arm Cortex A53 quad-core CPU architecture and built-in Adreno 702 GPU that deliver graphics capabilities, image quality and battery efficiency. It supports features such as USB 2.0 with OTG function, Bluetooth 5.0, wifi and FM making it suitable for applications such as automotive instrument clusters, vehicle telematics and PoS terminals.

The CQS290 uses Qualcomm LA2.1 middleware that supports features such as telemetry and device management functions for connected two-wheelers. It is designed in two variants, CQS290-EA and CQS290-NA, with both supporting multi-constellation GNSS with GPS, BDS, Glonass, Galileo, QZSS and SBAS powered by the Qualcomm Location Suite Gen 9VT. The module comes with optional integrated eSIM with global connectivity powered by the Cavli Hubble platform.

The Cavli Hubble stack further enhances the capabilities of both modules by introducing remote diagnosis, monitoring and debugging of the module through Hubble Lens, a component of the Cavli Hubble IoT connectivity and modem management platform ( This eliminates the necessity for physical intervention, simplifying the expansion of IoT. Through alliances with operators worldwide, Cavli has established a presence, delivering connectivity that sets standards in service quality and cost-effectiveness.

“At Cavli Wireless, we stand at the forefront of smart connectivity, striving to transform global connectivity with our state-of-the-art CQM220 and CQS290 modules,” said John Mathew, CEO of Cavli Wireless. “These modules represent our commitment to advancing the IoT industry, ensuring businesses worldwide have access to the most efficient, reliable and seamless connectivity available. We are excited to lead the charge in ushering in a new era of smart connectivity, where the possibilities for our partners and their applications are limitless.”
