Current waveform for LTE transmit

by Bill Mahoney   Last Updated October 20, 2019 00:25 AM - source

I am designing an IoT system which uses the SIM7000A. In the SIM7000 series datasheet it says that the highest possible current for LTE is under 200mA. However, it provides no other information - like what the waveform will be or its duration.

I am transmitting an HTTP GET. For how long will this consume 200mA of current? Will the waveform be a constant 200mA during the transmission or will it be a series of square waves? I don't have an oscilloscope so I can't check for myself.
