Ericsson, Sony Mobile, Qoitech and Altair Semiconductor are partnering to deliver over five times longer battery lifetime to a connected wearable prototype for diabetes monitoring.

The concept is a result of a continuous collaboration of leading mobile technology providers in exploring the Massive IoT ecosystem, looking into simplifying the ecosystem communication and extending the battery life of the devices for better user experience and reliability.

Marie Hogan, Head of Broadband and IoT RAN, Ericsson, said: “A large, global ecosystem of partners is key to cater for different customer needs in IoT. Furthermore, end-to-end capabilities based on standardized solutions are crucial to enable scalable, competitive and efficient IoT services. This second-generation e-health demo with significantly improved power efficiency enabling long battery life on low-power devices is really encouraging for the IoT market. It enables mass adoption of Massive IoT and paves the way for a wide range of industrial and consumer IoT applications.”

The Cat-M1/NB-IoT connected e-health concept platform for diabetes monitoring will be demonstrated at Ericsson booth in Hall South Stand S.1724 at MWC Americas (Los Angeles, September 12-14 2018).
