XMM7260 supports more LTE bands than XM7160 and also supports LTE carrier aggregation. It conforms to LTE Cat.6.

The following LTE bands supported: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 29, 30, 38, 41

The following LTE bands supported with carrier aggregation: 1+5, 8, 18, 19, 26; 2+4, 5, 13, 17, 29; 3+5, 8, 19, 20, 26; 4+5, 13, 17, 29; 7+20; 4+4
