WWAN and Fibocom L850-GL 4G LTE CAT9

Hello, 

 

 

I consedering buying a THINKPAD X1 CARBON (GEN 7), the Fibocom L850-GL 4G LTE CAT9  is included in the price, I guess it is used to acces 4G network with a SIM card exactly like a smartphone.

 

But in this case what is the use of the wwan option ? As far as I understand it is also used to acces  cellular network ?

What is the difference ? 

Please feel free to explain if I got this wrong Smiley Wink

 

Thx

Hi axel321, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!

 

The Fibocom L850-GL and WWAN option are one and the same thing.

I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!

Thx 

Then it is wierd to have the two separate options when configuring the computer...

I can select both and the price grows accordingly....

I just looked at the option in the Lenovo France store. It doesn't explain itself very well. When you add WWAN, it automatically adds the L850-GL.

I think Lenovo 2019 models are supposed to use both L860-GL(cat16)  and L850-GL(cat9). You can see both WWAN cards are listed in Lenovo parts catalog(01AX792, and 01AX796),  probably this is the reason why the webpage is design in such a way.

 

But Intel dropped the cellular business all of a sudden, which makes the future of L860-GL very much unclear. That's why all current models are only shipped with L850-GL card, and the webpage options  show redundancy.

I am considering purchase of Lenovo X1 Carbon Gen 7 with Fibocom L850-GL 4G LTE CAT9.

Does this work with SIM cards in Asia? Singapore?

titan77,

L850-GL has global certification, is suitable to work in the LTE networks in Singapore either, supports all LTE frequency bands cellular operators in Singapore operate in.
