How to select the chinese GSM modules?

Electronicman Duff Newbie

Hi Guys,

 

I m rookie in M2M field, need some help from you. We are considering to use low cost modules in our tracking device.

 

Anyone had experience in using chinese modules? I know there are several  module manufacture like simcom,quectel and fibocom.

 

I want to find some cheap price modules with long life cycle. I heard that simcom's firmware always updating, i dont like this.

And I read some news that simcom chipset supplier STE had split, does it mean their chipset will not exist for long time??

Is it an end of life product?

 

And quectel is using MTK chipset, but MTK start in consumer side, does it support well in industrial usage?

 

how about others?

 

how about the chinese  support?

 

anyone have experience with chinese modules?
