Arduino GSM Shield
Product Code : AGS 01
Product Description

Powered by latest techniques, we are engaged in offering the supreme quality Arduino GSM Shield. The provided shield  allows an arduino board to connect with internet for sending and receiving SMS, and make voice calls by utilizing GSM library. This shield is manufactured by our dexterous professionals using supreme quality components and pioneering techniques. Beside this, our valuable clients can avail this Arduino GSM Shield in different technical specifications at the most negotiable price.


  • Trouble free functioning

  • Easy to use

  • High durability

  • Excellent performance

  •  Specifications:

TheArduino GSM Shield connects your Arduino to the internet using the GPRSwireless network. Just plug this module onto your Arduino board, plug in a SIMcard from an operator offering GPRS coverage and follow a few simpleinstructions to start controlling your world through the internet. You can alsomake/receive voice calls (you will need an external speaker and microphonecircuit) and send/receive SMS messages.

As alwayswith Arduino, every element of the platform – hardware, software anddocumentation – is freely available and open-source. This means you can learnexactly how it's made and use its design as the starting point for your owncircuits. Hundreds of thousands of Arduino boards are already fueling people’screativity all over the world, everyday. Join us now, Arduino is you! 

  • Requires an Arduino board (not included)

  • Operating voltage 5V (supplied from the Arduino Board)

  • Connection with Arduino Uno on pins 2, 3 (Software Serial) and 7 (reset).See these notes for working with a Mega, Mega ADK, or Leonardo.


The Arduino GSM Shield allows an Arduino board to connect to the internet,make/receive voice calls and send/receive SMS messages. The shield uses a radio modem M10 by Quectel (datasheet).It is possible to communicate with the board using AT commands.The GSM library has a large number of methods for communication with the shield.

The shield uses digital pins 2 and 3 for software serial communication with the M10. Pin 2is connected to the M10’s TX pin and pin 3 to its RX pin. See these notes for working with an Arduino Mega, Mega ADK, or Leonardo. The modem's PWRKEY pinis connected to Arduino pin 7.

The M10 isa Quad-band GSM/GPRS modem that works at frequencies GSM850MHz, GSM900MHz,DCS1800MHz and PCS1900MHz. It supports TCP/UDP and HTTP protocols through a GPRS connection. GPRS data down link and up link transfer speed maximum is 85.6kbps.

Tointerface with the cellular network, the board requires a SIM card provided by a network operator. See the getting started pagefor additional information on SIM usage.

The mostrecent revision of the board uses the 1.0 pinout on rev 3 of the Arduino Uno board.

Notes on the Telefonica/Movilforum SIM included with the shield

The GSM shield comes bundled with a SIM from Telefonica/Movilforum that will work well for developing machine to machine (M2M) applications. It is not necessary to use this specific card with the shield. You may use any SIM that works on a network in your area.

The MovilforumSIM card includes a roaming plan. It can be used on any supported GSM network.There is coverage throughout the Americas and Europe for this SIM, check the Movilforumservice availability page for specific countries that have supported networks.

Activation of the SIM is handled by Movilforum. Detailed instructions on how to registerand activate your SIM online and add credit are included on a small pamphlet that comes with your shield. The SIM must be inserted into a powered GSM shield that is mounted on an Arduino for activation.

These SIM card come without a PIN, but it is possibleto set one using the GSM library's GSMPIN class.

You cannot use the included SIM to place or receive voice calls.

You can only place and receive SMS with other SIMs on the Movilforum network.

It's not possible to create a server that accepts incoming requests from the public internet. However, the Movilforum SIM will accept incoming requests from other SIM cards on the Movilforum network.

For using the voice, and other functions of the shield, you'll need to find a different network provider and SIM. Operators will have different policies for their SIMcards, check with them directly to determine what types of connections are supported.
