LTE Band 68 on EM7565?


Could the band 68 be enabled by firmware on the EM7565 modem?


There is no such band in this module

Thanks for the quick reply!
I see it isn’t, but can it be added into a future firmware release?

Both bands are kind of overlapped:

Band 28: UL–> 703-748 / DL–> 758-803
Band 68: UL–> 698-728 / DL–> 753-783


i don’t even see B68 here:

And I don’t see any module is supporting this B68:

It’s a band that has recently been added for Public Safety applications

Please, any update on the possibility to enable EM7565 to support B68?

not sure how to support this if there is no such radio option
you need to contact distributor to start the feasibility study

Hi again,

I know that band 68 is currently not supported, but that band 68 is actually overlapped from upper and lower frequencies band 28 (which is supported!)

Band 28 Supported : UL–> 703-748 / DL–> 758-803
Band 68 NOT supported, but overlapped by 28: UL–> 698-728 / DL–> 753-783

Please, how can I do for you to start a feasibility study?

We have an opportunity for hundreds of devices.


Have you contacted distributor?

Enabling Band 68 on the EM7565 modem via firmware update depends on several factors. First, it’s essential to check if the modem’s hardware supports Band 68. If the hardware supports it, then the possibility of enabling it through firmware becomes more viable.
I recommend reaching out to Sierra Wireless support or checking their official documentation
