Home Internet of Things NetComm Wireless in IoT tie-up with Ericsson

Industrial Internet of Things developer NetComm Wireless has joined the Ericsson IoT accelerator to help in the adoption of Massive IoT, a solution devised by Ericsson to address the emerging low power wide area market.

A statement from the company said its industrial grade 4G LTE machine-to-machine devices would integrage lightweight M2M and inter-operate with the Ericsson platform to make it possible for devices to work globally.

Ericsson's Massive IoT solution meets requirements for low-cost devices, extended coverage and long battery life and makes it possible for mobile networks to support applications like smart cities, smart metering, smart agriculture, logistics and transportation.

LwM2M is a management protocol that allows transfer of small amounts of data between devices and their management platforms.

NetComm Wireless' LwM2M devices simplify remote management and make the connection and managing of remote sensors, pumps and other assets that need to run at a low cost a commercially viable proposition.

"We're in full progress of expanding the IoT ecosystem of device and application partners interoperable with the IoT Accelerator platform, and we see this collaboration with NetComm Wireless and the portfolio of IIoT devices that they bring as a great contribution to that ecosystem, unleashing opportunities on the Internet of Things for operators leveraging cellular connectivity," said Steffen Conradsen, head of Device and Application Partner Ecosystem, IoT, at Ericsson.

"The new collaboration will help to address the fragmentation challenges that the IoT ecosystem has faced from the outset and we're pleased to join Ericsson in enabling the uptake of IoT by operators and enterprises more seamlessly," said Timo Brouwer, chief operating officer, NetComm Wireless.

"Operators and other ecosystem players now have global access to tools that eliminate the high development costs and proprietary restrictions that stand in the way of large-scale IoT deployments."

NetComm Wireless' LwM2M devices can be used in Europe, the US, Canada, the UAE, South East Asia, Japan and Australia.
