    550x Module with Antennas

    BA2

      According to our local distributor, in mass production, when we purchase this module, i will come with matching antennas. Is this really the case? Could we get confirmation from Intel?

       

       

      Thx

            Question is regardig just module purchase via distributors. We understand eval kit comes with antennas but does the modules come with antennas when we purchase Bulk. According to our distributor it does but I want to make sure.

              Hi BA2,

              It’s hard to say, I’d guess it depends on the Joule module format you bought from your distributor. Let us investigate further on your request to see if there’s anything we missed. We’ll contact you soon.

              Thank you for your understanding.

                Hi BA2,

                Thank you very much for your patience. 

                The Joule module sold in bulk may come with antennas depending on the quantities, or bulk package purchased. How many units have you bought? 
                The bulk modules are sold in two quantities:
                -- 10 Pack, which includes 2 antennas per module (20 total)
                --30 Pack, which includes no antennas

                Please let us know which package have you bought and if this answers your questions.

                Regards,
