BPI-4G LTE module for banana pi (USB interface)

Is this module available for sale in market?.

will public sale soon , about one or two weeks .

Does it support Linux like Ubuntu/Debian?.

yes, we have test it on linux and lede.

Can I interface Quectel EC25 MiniPCIe (http://www.quectel.com/product/ec25minipcie.htm1) module directly on BPI-R2 board since it has onboard MiniPCIe slot?.

this module is USB interfact for M.2 ,so can not use onboard slots. you also can use it with BPI-4G extension board . BPI-4G usb

Thanks for the info. Looking forward to get one extension board soon for testing.

I am also interested in this product. At this present moment I am using a Huawei E3372 USB LTE interface and want something that I can place within the BPI R2 (using the R2 existing interface), I think that this could be a good solution (I would rather purchase some device that was produced by the manufacture of the R2 board instead of using something that was manufactured by a 3rd party).

I am interested to know if this product will support the British LTE frequencies (800 MHz, 1800 MHz, 2600 MHz) and when this product will be available for purchase.

BPI-4G LTE module for banana pi (USB interface) public sale:


@sinovoip what kind of pin headers would I need to buy so I can solder the 14 pins myself?

which module are you used ?

It says “BPI-EC25-V1.0” it’s not on one of the pictures above, it has 2 micro-b USB ports.

From the this picture

it would be the left one, it’s the closest.

@sinovoip I measured the holes they seem to be 1mm wide and the pitch is 2mm (center hole to center hole) is that correct?

you can contace [email protected]

2mm pitch two row headers 14pin. For anyone else who may want to solder them on themself.

Hi @sinovoip, I bought this 4G modem from Amazon for my BPI-R3 based on the generic guidance from posts of you that “Quectel EC25E” is the modem which is compatible.

https://wiki.banana-pi.org/Banana_Pi_BPI-R3#Accessories https://wiki.banana-pi.org/Getting_Started_with_BPI-R3#4G.265G

The product images are not correct but these are are matching the modem and extension board I have:


Question is, I plugged the modem into the mPCIe and inserted the SIM on the respective card slot of the BPI-R3 too. However, OpenWrt constantly complaints that the SIM was not found. Can you provide some guidance if and how to get the modem running in the mPCIe slot?

I open this thread too to resolve the SIM Card not found issue.:

Thanks Mike

Is this model is compatible with Banana Pi R2 Pro ??? to connecting with mPCIe interface
