Shield for Raspberry Pi is based on system LARA-R211 used as a modem of mobile phone designed for LTE network and in case of emergency - 2G network. It supports, i.a. TCP / UDP / HTTP. It has two interfaces, UART and USB. The Raspberry is connected with the shield via UART using AT commands without any additional drivers.
The set includes two antennas, main and DIV, the main is used both for transmission and reception. DIV antenna is used only for reception and improves receiver's sensitivity.
The manufacturer has prepared a short guide about how to prepare and program the shield so that it functions correctly.
