RM500Q-GL on Mofi4500

Post by DTG_Dios » Sun Dec 27, 2020 5:33 pm

Hello, I’m wanting to replace my mc7455 on the mofi and upgrade it to a RM500-GL. Is this possible? The RM500-GL has 5G with LTE-A, I’m wanting to know how many carrier aggregations can it have?

You can do it, but you'd have to get a pcie to m.2 adapter, get the firmware to work, then be stuck with the 100mbps max throughput of the mofi router. I'd get a wg1608v2(that already has the m.2 interface, plus gigabit throughput), and sell the mofi whole, after you get the 1608+RM500 running.

The RM500Q-AE is the version you need, anyway.

Dr Broadband- I plan to use the goldenorb which I think for the Mofi is WE826-T2. I plan on buying the RM500 on eBay which I think are $380-$500.

ylrkdr- that’s awesome! I may end up doing that in the future. Appreciate it!

So the RM500 has the x7 carrier aggregation with LTE correct? Where I live there’s no 5G yet but there is a near by tower that may end up having 5G in the future. So for right now I want LTE. I was going to go for the EM20 but still thinking about it.

I think the RM500Q only does 3xCA, the RM502Q-AE is the one that can do 7xCA.
