Huawei’s cellular IoT leadership

  • As a pioneer in cellular IoT technologies, Huawei is a top contributor to LTE Category NB (NB-IoT), LTE Category M, and other 4G IoT Standards.
  • For NB-IoT, Huawei is a prime contributor to numerous key technologies such as three operation modes (i.e., in-band, guard-band, and standalone), narrowband design, and data-over-NAS, which allow data to be transmitted over unused, shared, and scattered spectrums of existing cellular networks, reducing cost for IoT services significantly.
  • As an exemplary contribution to Category M, Huawei’s Coverage Enhancement technologies help IoT terminals reduce unnecessary transmissions, greatly extending battery life.
