Ericsson builds end-to-end NB-IoT system for Chunghwa Telecom

Chunghwa Telecom will use the system to trial a range of IoT devices and applications in its laboratory Parties continue to work together to identify 5G use cases and applications for the digital transformation of industry verticals such as transportation and utilities Ericsson demonstrates end-to-end NB-IoT capabilities in support of Chunghwa Telecom Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) will build a NarrowBand IoT (NB-IoT) system for Chunghwa Telecom, Taiwan’s largest integrated telecommunications services company, enabling the island to take its first steps toward joining the Internet of Things. Chunghwa Telecom will use the system to trial a range of IoT devices and applications in its laboratory. NB-IoT is a 3GPP standards-based Low Power Wide Area technology that offers significant improvements in areas such as deep indoor coverage, power consumption, device complexity, system capacity and spectrum efficiency. The end-to-end NB-IoT solution developed for Chunghwa Telecom will comprise a range of Ericsson offerings including the Ericsson Radio System, Massive IoT radio access network (RAN) software, virtual Evolved Packet Core (vEPC), virtual Subscriber Data Management (vSDM), and the IoT Smart Device and Application service on the AppIoT platform. The vEPC is deployed as a dedicated IoT Packet Core, using network slicing functionality, enabling Chunghwa Telecom to explore massive machine type communications use cases and rapidly bring new services to market. Chen Shyang-Yih, Executive Vice President of Chunghwa Telecom and President of Telecommunication Laboratories, says: “Ericsson...

Keysight Technologies’ SystemVue 2017 Simulation Platform Effectively Lowers ASTRI’s NB-IoT Transceiver Cost, Power Requirements

Highlights: ASTRI experts identified an issue with an NB-IoT standard parameter that would have driven up NB-IoT transceiver cost and power Keysight’s SystemVue software and NB-IoT library provided proof of parameter issue, enabling ASTRI to officially request a standard change 3GPP Release 13 and 14 to contain official parameter change   SANTA ROSA, Calif., July 13, 2017 – Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) today announced that its premier simulation platform for system design and verification, SystemVue 2017, significantly contributed to an improvement to the narrowband internet of things (NB-IoT) standard. SystemVue enables users to combine existing baseband, RF, and channel models together for evaluation of the entire system. The improvement realized using SystemVue, optimizes the NB-IoT user equipment (UE) standard to facilitate the implementation of low-power NB-IoT terminal chips and will be incorporated in Release 13 (revised version) and 14 of the 3GPP standard. NB-IoT is an emerging narrowband wireless communication standard developed to enable a wide range of new IoT devices and services. The standard specifies low-cost and low-power implementation for massive deployment and long battery life.   While designing an NB-IoT terminal transceiver, experts from Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (ASTRI) discovered an improper definition in the NB-IoT standard’s receiver wideband intermodulation requirement. The requirement was more stringently specified than that in the LTE standard, which runs counter to the promise of offering low-cost/low-power...

Neousys Announces IGT-20, An ARM-based IoT, IIoT and Automation Gateway

Neousys Technology today announced the launch of IGT-20, an industrial grade ARM-based gateway. Unlike System on Module (SoM) that’s commonly provided as a barebone component, IGT-20 is based on AM3352 from Texas Instrument’s Sitara AM335x family and will be shipped as a ready system pre-installed with Debian. The industrial nature of IGT-20 means it is in compliance with common industrial certifications such as CE/FCC, shock and vibration. Another distinction IGT-20 has over SoM is that it accepts a wider range of power inputs ranging from 8 to 25 VDC (SoM usually accepts 5 VDC). IGT-20 has I/Os that are applicable to a range of industrial grade sensors. It features one USB2.0, one 10/100M LAN, two configurable COM ports (RS-232/422/485) and an optional CAN bus port. In addition to the ports mentioned, there are 4 built-in isolated digital input channels that accept discrete signals from various sensors or buttons/ switches. There are also four built-in isolated digital output channels to control actuators and indicators. Communication wise, IGT-20 has a mini PCIe slot and a USIM holder allowing it to transmit acquired data and system status via 3G, 4G or WiFi (mini PCIe WiFi module). There is an opening on top of IGT-20 for users to mount the SMA connector of the wireless module. In terms of storage, IGT-20 has dual microSDHC slots, one internal and one external. This design allows...

Ericsson launches network services for massive IoT

Packages broad range of radio network services together to enable operators to smoothly introduce Internet of Things applications on their networks Ericsson also introduces new IoT software features such as Voice over LTE support for Cat-M1, enabling voice services for IoT devices Introduces automated machine learning to Ericsson’s Network Operations Centers, helping manage delivery cost and enabling proactive incident management As the first commercial Internet of Things (IoT) networks are being introduced, Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) complements its cellular IoT software and IoT Accelerator offerings with a complete set of network services. These services enable service providers to efficiently address the deployment and operation of the massive number of IoT devices being introduced to LTE networks. Applicable for Cat-M1 (also called LTE-M) and Narrow Band IoT (NB-IoT) technologies, these services include IoT network design and optimization, deployment, operation and management, and are supported by the recently expanded Support Services offering. Peter Laurin, Head of Business Area Managed Services, Ericsson, says: “We anticipate IoT devices will surpass mobile phones as the largest category of connected devices as early as 2018 and, according to Ericsson’s latest Mobility Report, there will be 18 billion connected IoT devices in 2022. This massive uptake requires a different approach to network planning, design, operations and capabilities than traditional mobile broadband networks.” Ericsson is also introducing new IoT software features, such as Voice over LTE (VoLTE) support...
