China Mobile, Ericsson and Intel complete the world’s first application demonstration based on latest cellular IoT technology at MWC Shanghai 2016

On June 29, 2016, China Mobile, Ericsson and Intel will complete the world’s first application demonstration based on latest Cellular IoT technology at Mobile World Congress (MWC) Shanghai 2016.
Jun 27, 2016

With Ericsson‘s RBS6000 multi-mode base station and the pre-commercial software based on the latest Cellular IoT technology, the Intel® XMM™ 7115 modem solution, as well as China Mobile’s environment monitoring application and platform, the joint demonstration achieve end-to-end interconnection and application of the world’s latest Cellular IoT technology. During the demonstration, multiple sensors based on environment monitoring application capture temperature, humidity, brightness, PM2.5 and other data. Using Intel’s XMM™ 7115 modem and Ericsson’s network with pre-commercial software to support the latest Cellular IoT technology, the data is sent to China Mobile’s environment monitoring platform.

The demonstration indicates the rapid evolvement of the latest cellular IoT technology from standard to products. As products mature, the cellular IoT technology will be broadly adopted in areas like smart meters, smart wearables, smart home, municipal IoT, smart building, logistics tracking, wide area IoT, industrial IoT to address the increasing demands of IoT application.

The latest cellular loT has been completed by 3GPP recently. This technology is expected to meet the demands of LPWA (Low Power Wide Area) IoT applications with advantages including low cost, low power consumption, wide/deep coverage, massive connections, and high reliability of transmission.

To promote the cellular IoT industry and improve the celluar IoT ecosystem, China Mobile established a Cellular IoT Open Lab in China Mobile 5G Innovation Center to provide complete testing environment for industry partners and facilitate system equipment providers, chip providers, module providers, device providers, operators and developers to test and develop products in the lab such as end-to-end interoperability testing, device and module testing, application testing, product conformance certification. In addition, the lab is an open industry collaborative platform and provides developers with the standard API calling basic communication capabilities, helping developers rapidly enable various innovations in service, application and business model.
