Although it has been possible to via wifi hook up their Raspberry Pi 3. But it has not so far been the talk of the to check enkortsdatorn on some longer distance. Until now. The soon to be launched namely a chipp that just open the door. A chipp that makes it possible to communicate through the LTE network. And thus over longer distances. Not, however, in particular, the high speed should be noted, writes IDG News.
Tests of an LTE-chipp, category 1, from the manufacturer, Altair, has recently been completed. And seems to have given good results, as the company is now releasing the product as an option to the popular enkortsdatorn. Something that has long been requested by developers.

the Raspberry Pi is used today in everything from hobbyhackare to professional programmers. It is being built robots, drones, and other smart devices. But so far, they have been referred to the wi-fi solutions for wireless communications.
Now you should be able to control stuff from the lower distance, if not in the very highest speeds. The transmission speed is 10 Mbps. This is significantly lower than, for example, today’s modern smart phones, like the Galaxy S7 and Iphone 7.
For example, it will now be possible to control a robot, several kilometres away, or get access to a camera via the cellular network. However, it is good to remind that it is good to see the robot check, for safety’s sake. Even the founder of Raspberry Pi, Eben Upton see the advantages with LTE connectivity. As it is possible to control the connected equipment in the industry.

But the users are so far referred to the solutions of other actors. LTE will not be built into the actual the Raspberry Pi board in the near future.
"for reasons of cost and design, there is currently no plan to integrate an LTE function in the product’s core", says Eben Upton.
