HL7800 on non-M1 LTE network

We are considering the HL7800 for a future project. I was wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to use the HL7800 on a standard LTE network if M1 is not yet available in the area we’ve deployed our device?

No. HL7800 only supports LTE Cat-M1 and Cat-NB1. You cannot use it on a standard LTE network.
