Example of partners with established interoperability in the IoT Accelerator ecosystem
Qualcomm’s MDM9206 global multi-mode LTE IoT modem and Ericsson’s IoT Accelerator platform is interoperable using the OMA LwM2M protocol, complementing the interoperability on connectivity level with Ericsson RAN. This brings a set of benefits out of the box, including zero-touch onboarding to the IoT Accelerator for IoT devices using the MDM9206, as well as device management and data management functions. The MDM9206 LTE IoT modem is designed as a global multi-mode connectivity solution and purpose-built to provide reliable, optimized cellular connectivity for the next-generation of IoT products and services requiring low bandwidth and years of battery-life. The MDM9206 global multi-mode LTE IoT modem combines the high reliability, low latency, and voice support of LTE Cat-M1 (eMTC) with the extended coverage and delay tolerance of Cat NB-1 (NB-IoT). It is engineered to allow device manufacturers to support ultra-low power consumption and cost-optimized solutions that cover full range of low data rate IoT applications.
Sequans’ Monarch - Narrowband LTE-M (Cat M1) and NB-IoT (Cat NB1) Single Chip for the Internet of Things and Ericsson’s IoT Accelerator platform is interoperable using the OMA LwM2M protocol, complementing the interoperability on connectivity level with Ericsson RAN. This brings a set of benefits out of the box, including zero-touch onboarding to the IoT Accelerator for IoT devices using Sequans Monarch, as well as device management and data management functions. Monarch is a single-chip LTE Cat M1/NB1 solution designed specifically for Narrowband IoT applications, including sensors, wearables, and other low data, low power M2M and IoT devices. Monarch complies with the ultra-low-power and reduced complexity feature requirements of the 3GPP release 13 LTE Advanced Pro standard. Monarch achieves a very high level of integration whereby baseband, RF transceiver, power management, and RAM memory are integrated into a tiny 6.5 x 8.5 mm package, running Sequans carrier-proven LTE protocol stack, an OMA lightweight M2M (LwM2M) client, and a rich set of AT commands.

Disruptive Technologies’ sensing solution makes IoT simple and scalable, interoperable with Ericsson’s IoT Accelerator platform. At the core of the sensing layer is the world’s smallest IoT sensor; Disruptive Technologies’ smart wireless mini-sensor is the size of a postage stamp, lightweight and without compromising range or battery life. The mini-sensors can be positioned exactly where needed to gather the most accurate data, directly from the source. The sensors collect and aggregate granular data in real time to enable advanced analytics, trigger automated actions and help customers make informed decisions.
Interoperable with Ericsson’s IoT Accelerator Flashnet has its Flashnet inteliLIGHT®, a street light remote management system that enables automatic ON/OFF and dimming control of every street light fixture in a city. Using LTE NB-IoT and Cat-M1 the solution provides in-depth grid awareness and real-time feedback of any change occurring along the grid. Through dimming and smart scheduling, the system can reduce the energy costs with up to 80% (with LED lamps). Real-time malfunction monitoring and maintenance optimization tools increase light service satisfaction and can cut operational costs with up to 42%.
Interoperable with Ericsson’s IoT Accelerator using the OMA LwM2M protocol, Leikr brings a health, security and tracking application. LTE NB-IoT ensures secure reliable connection even where 3G and normal LTE has given up. Whether it is a temporal issue, a chronical decease or close monitored health improvement, the Leikr A.L.L. (assisted ambient life) watch can provide a secure and reliable monitoring of your Life. The Liker A.A.L can connect to virtually any wireless sensor to monitor a specific sets of bio markers.
Quectel’s BG96 module has support for Cat-M1, NB-IoT and EGPRS, as well as an integrated LwM2M client interoperable with Ericsson’s IoT Accelerator platform and LwM2M server. The interoperability brings a set of benefits out of the box, including zero-touch onboarding of IoT devices using the BG96, as well as device management and data management applicable for a wide range of devices for IoT use-cases covering areas like water/gas metering, smart parking, asset tracking, smoke alarms, etc.
