At today's Internet of Things (IoT)
Summit during Mobile World Congress Shanghai (MWC Shanghai) 2016, Huawei
launched its end-to-end Narrow-band IoT (NB-IoT) Solution to help global
operators expand their IoT services into new markets. Huawei is committed to providing
comprehensive technologies and business support services for the upcoming
large-scale commercialization of IoT, and enabling telecom operators' to turn
IoT into a basic service in the future.
The NB-IoT Solution will be
available in September 2016. Huawei plans to conduct a large commercial trial
in the fourth quarter of this year and release the solution for large-scale
commercial use in late December of 2016.
The end-to-end NB-IoT Solution
includes: Smart Device Solution enabled by Huawei LiteOS and NB-IoT Chipset;
eNodeB base stations that can smoothly evolve to NB-IoT; the IoT Packet Core
that supports flexible deployment of Core in a Box and network functions
virtualization (NFV); and a cloud-based IoT Connection Management Platform with
big data capabilities. This solution is designed to meet operators'
requirements for IoT services with low-power and wide-area (LPWA) coverage.
Developed based on 3GPP standards, the solution underpins flexible networking
under various industry and use scenarios. In addition, the solution's devices
and platform can be made easily accessible to NB-IoT device and application
partners, which makes it possible to rapidly achieve business innovation and
