Shenzhen China – Nov 13th, 2020 - Fibocom (Stock Code: 300638), a leading global provider of IoT (Internet of Things) wireless solution and wireless communication modules, recently worked with Endrich, a leading electronic spare part distributor in Europe, to complete a narrowband-communication-based IoT ecosystem concept, which has won the Grand Prix of the Industry Days 2020 Exhibition in Budapest few weeks ago.
The concept illustrates the process of sensor readings being collected from diverse microcontroller-based electronics, forwarded to the cloud for Endrich Cloud Database Services via LPWA communication channels, and finally visualized on connected devices like smartphones and tablets. The concept application can be adopted in various IoT scenarios including smart home, smart manufacturing, smart city, smart energy, and smart security to achieve intelligent remote monitoring. By digitalizing sensor readings and aggregating scattered data into a central database, it allows real “Big Data” to permeate every part of ourlife. The IoT Ecosystem concept, after a period of developing and testing, now has reached the ready-to-market status.
The entire IoT ecosystem concept is based on LPWA communication technology, in which wireless communication is supported by the Fibocom LTE Cat M Module MA510. LTE Cat M is a member of the LPWA family, which is ideal for IoT applications like smart metering, in which only small amount of data transfer is required. LPWA, Low Power Wide Access narrowband IoT communication, thanks to its extremely narrow carrier bandwidth, it can penetrate deeper into the interior of buildings and making connectivity possible in extreme difficult reception conditions. It also comes with the advantages of low power consumption, extending the battery life of electronics.Moreover, its low deployment cost makes it ideal to be deployed in everyday IoT applications. As the world's leading supplier of wireless communication modules and solutions, Fibocom has the experience and technical advantages in LPWA communication technology. In cooperation with Endrich, Fibocom can provide cost-efficient solutions that can be quickly implemented and commercialized, shortening the customer's product development cycle.
Fibocom LTE Cat M Module MA510
Fibocom MA510 LTE Cat M module belongs tothe LPWA module family. It is a series of multi-mode LTE Cat M1/Cat NB2/EGPRS module with global bands and GNSS integrated. It has passed PTCRB, AT&T, Verizon, ANATEL, JATE, TELEC, KDDI, DT, VDF certifications, and on the processof applying for Softbank, DoCoMo and Telefonica certifications. It is fully compliant with 3GPP Rel-14. Also, MA510 is pin-to-pin compatible with Fibocom LPWA module 510 family, allowing customer applications to immigrate easily between different technologies without hardware changing. With small size and ultra-low power consumption, rich set of internet protocols, industry-standard interfaces and features, MA510 is suitable for IoT industry applications such as smart metering, smart parking, smart home, wearable devices, wireless POS, trackers, etc.
