Comments Off on Ericsson and Orange Trialing IoT on Cellular Network 11

Ericsson and Orange announced a trial of cellular IoT over GSM and LTE, the trial aims to improve indoor coverage, reduce cost of device and extend battery life. EC-GSM (Extended Coverage) trial will be conducted in France using the 900 MHz band, with the aim to enhance device reach-ability by up to 20dB or a seven-fold improvement in the range of low-rate applications. In partnership with Sequans and Ericsson will demonstrate LTE IoT and energy efficient GSM and LTE networks.

Alain Maloberti, SVP of Orange Labs Networks says, “IoT is a key area in Orange’s Essentials2020 strategic plan, and France should play a key role in IoT takeoff in Europe. In order to extend our connectivity offer, we are currently deploying a LoRa network. At the same time, we are preparing the future of cellular networks and we are happy to collaborate with Ericsson to be the first operator to demonstrate IoT over GSM and LTE in order to roll it out ahead of 5G availability in the market.” Read more
