This is the newest version of our Raspberry Pi 3G – 4G / LTE Base Shield, the smallest, most easy-to-use, and most versatile Cellular Communication Shield we ever designed. ... pre-order/

-There is a clip-in Mini PCIe socket for your communication need.
-With the 4G/LTE Module(EC25) you can reach 150Mbps downlink and 50Mbps uplink data rates and the 3G Module(Quectel UC20) delivers the maximum data rate of 14.4Mbps downlink and 5.76Mbps uplink, and – The modules have built-in GPS/GLONASS for your location-based applications.

I have purchased Raspberry Pi Cellular IoT Application Shield – LTE-M & NB-IoT & eGPRS, and going through instructions in web I have been able to send UDP message. Now I am trying to configure Shield and Raspberry Pi to be able to open a socket TCP and send messages to server. I can do that with Raspberry Pi and LTE telephone giving access to raspberry pi throught LTE phone server, and, on this way, I can see an interface in my Pi with command ifconfig. I was wondering if it would be possible make same config: have an interaface in raspberry pi towards Shield, that permit make ping from Pi console and open TCP sockets and send/receive messages to server.

Thanks for help
