The Fx30-CatM is the choice to deploy products in Asia, however for Europe, the Fx30-Cat1 may be a better choice. In France, Orange is the only operator having deployed the LTE-M, so if the LTE-M of this operator is not good enough, we are going to fallback in 2G. It would be nice to fall back in 3G, which is possible with the Fx30-Cat1.
I am using a custom Linux where I have my own applications built on top of the Yocto layers provided by Sierra Wireless. Can the Linux part be identical on the Fx30-CAtM and the Fx30-Cat1, … or with a minimal number of modifications?
I would like to avoid having to maintain two very different build environments. Do you have some developments done in this direction?
