2016 has been a busy year for telecoms operators in the Internet of Things (IoT) market, most notably in low-power, wide-area (LPWA) technologies as narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) and LTE-M (long-term evolution to 4G, machine to machine) approach full commercial deployment.
KPN has successfully trialed the new Internet of Things (IoT) technology LTE-M (also known as LTE Cat-M1), claiming the first operator in Europe to do so.
Smart cities promote numerous advantages for the public and organisations alike, improving communication response, remote control potential and innovative interactive experiences for public and private services.
Engineers from Vodafone and Huawei have completed the first over-the-air connection on a live network using standardised NB-IoT. The commercial trial took place in Madrid, Spain.
On August 31, 2016, Ericsson announced the launch of its new AIR 6468 cellular radio. Ericsson stated that together with the 5G Plug-Ins announced in June, and the (already available) Radio System Baseband 5216, it now offers all the components of a 5G access network.
Four new LTE Cat M1 modules are to be launched for the U.S. and one LTE Cat NB1 for Europe at CTIA Super Mobility 2016, according to Telit.
As the IoT unfolds it’s critical, says Tony Milbourn of u-blox, not to lose track of what really matters and to provide the technologies, modules and security to keep them robust and reliable.
u-blox has announced forthcoming availability of its SARA-N2 Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) module, the world’s first cellular radio module compliant to the 3GPP Release 13, Narrowband IoT (LTE Cat. NB1) standard.
Berg Insight estimated that global cellular M2M module shipments increased by 19.4% in 2015 to a new record level of 96.0 million.
