Cellular Modules vs GPS and Timing Modules vs Hybrid Modules vs Short Range Wireless Modules


Cellular Modules 
are components that are placed onto the systemboard of your device to provide cellular connectivity.  They are used in a wide variety of devices, from smartphones, to smart garbage cans to many of the wearables used by people to monitor activity.

GPS and Timing Modules are components that are placed onto the systemboard of devices to both provide an accurate location of the device, or in some cases, to allow the device to synchronize with an important network (such as a TV broadcast network)

Hybrid Module Devices
 are a hybrid of a cellular modem and a cellular module.  It offers some of the lower cost benefits of a cellular module with the ease of use of a cellular modem.

Short Range Wireless Modules are components that are placed onto the systemboard of your device to allow for short-range communication between devices.  This may include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or private-radio based offerings.
