BEAM iSERIES Supported Frequency Bands


A frequency band is a specific range of frequencies in the radio frequency (RF) spectrum.


Summary

Different countries and network operators use different frequency bands for communication in their respective mobile networks. Therefore, in order to communicate within an operator's network, the mobile equipment to has to support the frequency bands used by that operator.

This page contains information about mobile frequency bands supported by the BEAM iSeries routers.


Supported Bands

Devices ordered under different product codes may support different frequency bands. Specifically for the BEAM 5i and BEAM 8i routers, the seventh symbol of the product code indicates the intended region of operation.

The table below displays bands supported by the BEAM iSERIES router based on its product code:
