Narrowband – Internet of Things (NB-IoT)

Narrowband-Internet of Things (NB-IoT) is a standards-based low power wide area (LPWA) technology developed to enable a wide range of new IoT devices and services. NB-IoT significantly improves the power consumption of user devices, system capacity and spectrum efficiency, especially in deep coverage. Battery life of more than 10 years can be supported for a wide range of use cases.

New physical layer signals and channels are designed to meet the demanding requirement of extended coverage – rural and deep indoors – and ultra-low device complexity. Initial cost of the NB-IoT modules is expected to be comparable to GSM/GPRS. The underlying technology is however much simpler than today’s GSM/GPRS and its cost is expected to decrease rapidly as demand increases.

Supported by all major mobile equipment, chipset and module manufacturers, NB-IoT can co-exist with 2G, 3G, and 4G mobile networks. It also benefits from all the security and privacy features of mobile networks, such as support for user identity confidentiality, entity authentication, confidentiality, data integrity, and mobile equipment identification. The first NB-IoT commercial launches have been completed and global roll out is expected for 2017/18.

From the technical specifications, we can see the two Gigabit LTE routers have very similar functions. The supported LTE frequency bands are different for various LTE networks in different areas. Here now, the Netgear Nighthawk M1 is available in the market and has gained very good reputation. The Huawei E5788u-96a(first released model) is not yet available. But we suppose it would be available son around the beginning of 2018. And who will be the winner, the market will tell.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset will Be Available in 2018

Qualcomm has announced the Snapdragon 845, a new high-end chipset for smartphones, tablets, notebooks and other mobile devices. The successor to the Snapdragon 835 comes with improved processor performance, a faster modem and a better graphics unit. It is expected that the Snapdragon 845 will be used in various flagship smartphones with Android OS from 2018, for example, in devices such as the LG G7 or the Samsung Galaxy S9.

Octa-core processor

The heart of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 is an octa-core processor. This consists of two quad-core processors, each with up to 1.8 GHz or 2.8 GHz clock power. The associated main memory is clocked up to 1866 MHz (Dual Channel LPDDR4x). The performance should be well above that of the predecessor Snapdragon 835, so the chipset now supports, for example, the encoding or decoding of videos with 2160p resolution at 60 fps and 10-bit color depth in H.265 format.

 

LTE Cat18: Modem for up to 1.2 GBit/s

Of course, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 also has an integrated modem. While the predecessor Snapdragon X16 modem with LTE Cat16 installed, the Snapdragon 845 is now the Snapdragon X20 modem with LTE Cat18 on board. The maximum LTE speed is 1.2 Gigabit per second in the downlink and 150 MBit/s in the uplink (UL Cat13). The downlink supports 5CC CA, which is a fivefold channel bundling. In addition, the modem can downlink the 256QAM modulation as well as 4 × 4 MIMO on up to three carriers simultaneously. A maximum of 2CC carrier aggregation is possible in the uplink, and 64QAM modulation is also available here.

 

Of course, the speeds that can be reached on the end device depend not only on the modem, but also on the mobile network. In many coutries, few provider currently offers 1.2 GBit/s in its LTE network.

Snapdragon 845: more features

Other features of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 include display resolutions of up to 4K Ultra HD, both on the integrated display and on a possible external display. As a graphics processor, an Adreno 630 is used, compared to the Adreno 540 from the Snapdragon 835. In addition, the chipset offers native support for biometric authentication as well as secure mobile payment.

 

Huawei Shows LTE and 5G antenna

External LTE antennas have usually been noticed as rather large and not very shapely. The Chinese network supplier Huawei has now for the first time demonstrated a transparent LTE antenna at its Global Mobile Broadband Forum in London, which can be comparatively inconspicuously integrated into a window. The antenna is not ready for market yet, but it is worth taking a first look, especially as the frequency range is also supported by 3.5 GHz planned for 5G.

 

Of course, Huawei’s antenna is not completely invisible, but it can still be better attached to a pane of glass than the usual black or gray “antenna box”, which is customary with external LTE antennas. At least the antenna should be relatively inconspicuous. The antenna shown at the Global Mobile Broadband Forum and is still 450 x 240 x 0.11 millimeters in size, the final version will be significantly more compact with 300 x 200 x 0.11 mm.

 

The antenna amplifies a fairly wide frequency spectrum between 1710 and 2690 MHz and thus also covers the frequency bands B1 (2100 MHz), B3 (1800 MHz) and B7 (2600 MHz) used in Europe for UMTS and LTE. The gain is up to 5dBi. In addition, the frequency range between 3.4 GHz and 3.8 GHz is supported. The so-called C-band is regarded as the worldwide base spectrum for the next generation of mobile communications 5G.

When the LTE antenna will be available, what it will cost and whether a market launch is planned in Europe, cannot be know now.
