RAK5010 NB-IoT Tracker
The RAK5010 is a tracker, which integrates LTE CAT M1 & NB1, GPS, BLE, and sensors. It is built on the Quectel BG96 LTE CAT M1 & NB1 module, which has an integrated GPS receiver. The MCU running the board is a Nordic nRF52840 controller.
As it has both GPS and BLE it can be used for outdoor and indoor scenarios, where location-based services need be present.
There are four sensors onboard: humidity and temperature sensor, pressure sensor, 3-axis motion sensor, and ambient light sensor. The extension IOs allow adding more sensors in addition to the on-board ones.
This board is particularly suitable to be used as a quick testing and prototyping tool for applications requiring NB-IoT connectivity.
Application development supports the GCC environment.

Questions and Answers
What is the quantity pricing for this board? 50+, 100+, 500+?
You can mail Nancy Wang (email@example.com) for a price list.
Hi, is this Arduino IDE friendly? Thanks.
At this point, there is no Arduino IDE compatibility. You could try the forums, perhaps someone in the community has contributed something I am not aware of, that might be of help: https://forum.rakwireless.com/
Hi, Does this board have FCC certification to be used in the USA? Otherwise, what documents do I need from you to make the presentation to the FCC agency?
No FCC certification. We can not say when this will be done, as for what you need to do it yourself I would advise talking to the FCC directly.
does it works in india?
Yes, it has worldwide band support.
Where do you get the JTAG mentioned in https://doc.rakwireless.com/rak5010-wistrio-nb-iot-tracker/burning-of-firmware-into-the-device? Also, is there a need to burn the firmware when we receive the unit from RAK?

What is the iPEX connector on the back side for?
This port is for an External BLE antenna, however, you have to rework the board.
Support GPRS comunicaciones?
The module supports EGPRS.
