Telit NB-IoT Modules Integrated in Multiple Demonstrations at MWC 2017

Telit is showcasing six deployment-ready narrowband IoT (NBIoT) applications demos on a live network along with its ecosystem of technology partners and customers at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona.

NB-IoT is a tremendous opportunity for Telit as this new cellular standard is targeted at segments that Telit has been successfully serving for many years. NB-IoT also brings the potential to enable new segments and application areas that are now possible to address with it and other upcoming cellular technologies.

At MWC 17, Telit is exhibiting its range of new IoT Modules for NBIoT applications. It is offering fully compliant LTE- Cat NB 3GPP Release 13 products in two form factors: The NE910C1 in the popular xE910 28.2x28.2mm module family and the NE866B1 in the 15x19mm miniature series of the xE866 module family. NBIoT products are optimized for power consumption compatible with battery powered applications, delivering enhanced coverage for better wireless reach into deep indoor environments. They also boast high reliability and SIM-based security as they run on the cellular licensed spectrum.

They are quite active at the MWC 2017 this year. Telit together with, Telefonica as mobile network operator and Ericsson as infrastructure provider, is contributing to a number of live applications around narrow-band IoT. At the Ericsson booth (Hall 2 / Stand 2N62), the Telefonica booth (Hall 3 / Stand 3K21) and the GSMA booth (Hall 4 / Stand 4A15), Telit is enabling narrow-band connectivity to an ecosystem made by devices such as a “manhole monitor”, a car detector for smart parking management, personal trackers, CO2 sensors or gas tank monitoring. All these deployment-ready concepts are end-to-end “sensor-to-cloud” solutions and demonstrate the business case of NBIoT, leveraging features like low battery power, low data rates, extended coverage and pure data-only applications with a fixed installation.

At the Nokia booth (Hall 3 / Stand 3A10), Telit is featured in a gas metering application that monitors and analyzes gas flow and usage, powered by its customer Shitek. The narrow-band IoT modules with embedded NBIoT chipset send data through the Nokia end-to-end LTE network to the cloud, demonstrates how NB-IoT technology can be used to manage an integrated network comprised of components from multiple vendors in a smart and cost-effective way.
