LAGOS – Ericsson has launched new solutions to enable service providers to address a larger part of the IoT market.

The solutions would cater to use cases across verticals including automotive, manufacturing, and utilities.

The company has further outlined cellular IoT evolution in four market segments including massive IoT, broadband IoT, critical IoT, and industrial automation IoT. Two of these segments are new – broadband IoT and industrial automation IoT.

Ericsson in a news release said that the company is launching enhanced functionalities for massive IoT and new solutions for broadband IoT.

One example of massive IoT enhancement is the NB-IoT extended cell range 100km, which stretches the standards-based limit from around 40km to 100km through software updates without changes to existing NB-IoT devices, the statement mentioned.

The broadband IoT solutions being launched include drone detection and link control, radio access network (RAN) slicing, Advanced Subscriber Group Handling, and Multi-Gigabit LTE for 2Gbps data throughput and around 10 millisecond latency.

The new solutions will enable use cases in automotive, drones, AR/VR, advanced wearables, smart manufacturing, and smart utilities.

“Cellular IoT is moving from early adoption with Massive IoT to global rollout. We are now describing ‘what’s next?’ for our customers and how they can make the most out of their 4G and 5G investments on the same network and address more advanced IoT use cases across industries,” said Fredrik Jejdling, Executive Vice President and Head of Networks, Ericsson.

With effective use of techniques such as network slicing, service providers can support all four segments in a single network, Ericsson mentioned.

The number of cellular IoT connections is expected to reach 4.1 billion in 2024 – increasing with an annual growth rate of 27 percent, according to the Ericsson Mobility Report.

“Ericsson’s cellular IoT evolution concept will support service providers to incrementally allow add-on use cases even within a single vertical,” Senior Research Analyst, IoT and Mobile Network Infrastructure at IDC said.
