The Internet of Everything in the Internet of Things era will bring huge imagination to future life. Industry insiders expect that 50 billion devices will be interconnected by 2020. The application scenarios of these devices are different from those of smart phones. The comprehensive performance of traditional short-range wireless access technologies in terms of coverage, power consumption, and system capacity cannot meet the needs of the Internet of Things era. To achieve the connection between all things, Support for many heterogeneous connectivity technologies is needed to meet the needs of different scenarios and applications.
Among the many connectivity technologies supporting the development of the Internet of Things, Qualcomm, the global leader in wireless technology, believes that cellular technology will play a key role in the next 10 years or even longer. Recently, at Qualcomm's LTE IoT product dynamic small media communication meeting, Qualcomm product marketing director Ma Jinwu said that the current LTE IoT has begun to connect massive IoT, more than 50 commercial Cat-M1 and / have been deployed in more than 30 countries// Or the Cat-NB1 network, the actual number will be even higher globally.
Qualcomm has invested a lot of energy in this area. Qualcomm's LTE IoT chipset supporting the Cat-M1, Cat-NB1 and E-GPRS - MDM9206, is currently used in the US, Australia and Europe, and has received numerous The recognition and favor of module manufacturers at home and abroad. In this communication meeting, Qualcomm introduced the next-generation IoT dedicated modem 9205. The modem supports several low-power WAN standards, including LTE-M, NB-IoT and 2G/E-GPRS connections, which consume 70% less power than the previous generation MDM 9206 and is only 50% smaller than the MDM 9206.
Ma Jinwu said that the 9205 modem is the latest generation of Qualcomm specifically designed for low-power wide-area IoT, and has made many optimizations for the Internet of Things. Compared with the previous generation, it has more leading features and is the most integrated in its class. It integrates flash memory, RAM and RF front-end, and is more cost-effective.
