The 3G shield will turn your Arduino or Raspberry Pi into smartphone device. The 3G shield kit includes video camera (OV7670) for video telephony features. The communication module is specially oriented to work with Internet service implementing internally several application layer protocols which make easier to send the information to the cloud.
The 3G shield is using Simcom SIM5216 series Multi Band HSDPA/WCDMA/GSM/GPRS/EDGE module solution which supports HSDPA up to 3.6Mbps for data transfer. We can make HTTP and HTTPS (secure mode) navigation, downloading and uploading content to a web server.
Other interesting accessories which can be connected to the module are an audio components including microphone, speaker, hands free and headphones sets and a SD socket to save directly all the data coming from the 3G network or recorded from the video camera. You can even reproduce audio files stored in the SD card (like a mp3 player!). You can also use it as a standard 3G modem at full speed just connecting it through its specific mini-USB socket to your laptop (Linux, Windows, MacOS)
The 3G shield has wide range of rich application features such as supporting embedded LUA script, or TCP/ UDP/ FTP/ HTTP/ HTTPS/ SMTP/ POP3/ MMS and other software features, provide customers with worldwide interactivity projects inside the "Internet of Things" era.
