"NB-IoT technologies fully meet the LPWA market requirements for deep coverage, mass connectivity, ultra-low power consumption, and ultra-low costs,” said Zhu Cheng, General Manager of Huawei’s Cellular IoT product line. “With this leading NB-IoT solution, Huawei will continue working together with carriers and vertical industries to promote the implementation of commercial NB-IoT applications. Besides technological innovation and product development, Huawei will proactively and relentlessly promote construction of the NB-IoT ecosystem and boost incubation of NB-IoT applications for a prosperous future for the NB-IoT industry."
Huawei NB-IoT Solution Won the Gold Medal at WIOT
Huawei provides an industry-leading E2E NB-IoT solution
After the NB-IoT 3GPP standards were officially frozen in June 2016, Huawei released the E2E NB-IoT solution in September of the same year. Meanwhile, Huawei launched the world's first dedicated NB-IoT chip, supporting all deployment modes defined in 3GPP standards. This E2E solution covers chips, access network devices, and a cloud IoT platform.
Huawei provides an industry-leading developer-oriented open platform
The IoT field requires not only solutions for carriers but also an open platform for developers. Huawei provides an E2E open scheme and environment for developers, including various terminal development tools (the EVK test board, test terminal, and USB dongle), LiteOS terminal exposure capability, NFV-based IoT platform, and the SoftRadio development environment. This comprehensive platform facilitates NB-IoT application development.
Huawei proactively promotes construction of the NB-IoT ecosystem
Huawei, together with GSMA and other partners, initiated the founding of the NB-IoT forum. Currently, this forum has attracted 41 members and will open to vertical industries. Huawei and partners worldwide have established seven NB-IoT Open Labs, where smart parking, smart water and gas meter reading, smart street lamp, and other NB-IoT applications have been incubated.
This gold medal marks a new start on the road for Huawei to pursue higher achievements with the NB-IoT solution. Huawei has started deploying pilot NB-IoT sites with world's leading carriers. It is expected that 20 commercial NB-IoT networks will be deployed by the end of 2017.
The Seventh Annual Mobile Broadband (MBB) Forum will be held in Tokyo, Japan on November 23 to 25, 2016. The world's top operators along with key industry decision-makers, policymakers and influencers will attend to discuss the hottest trends in the MBB ecosystem, and explore the future of mobile broadband.
