Licensed and Un-licensed spectrum options supported, including NB-IoT, LTE-M, LoRa and Sigfox
FAIRFAX, VA., USA – 8 November 2016 - TEOCO, the leading provider of engineering, assurance and analytics solutions to communications service providers (CSPs) worldwide, today announced comprehensive support for the planning of next-generation IoT networks. TEOCO’s market-leading network planning solution, ASSET Radio, now supports emerging IoT standards including NB-IoT, LTE-M and unlicensed LPWA technologies such as LoRa and Sigfox. These capabilities are available to all existing ASSET Radio 9.0 customers with no additional modules required. Additionally, through the ASSET Design module, TEOCO customers can use automatic planning and site creation capabilities to evaluate deployment scenarios and create designs that meet their strict coverage and server redundancy requirements.
Support for both licensed and un-licensed IoT standards will offer greater flexibility to IoT service providers looking to build highly efficient IoT networks that support a wide range of current and emerging services and devices. These could range from Industrial applications to wearables, traffic management systems, healthcare and smart appliances. With TEOCO’s ASSET suite, IoT service providers will be able to deploy unlicensed LPWA networks now and later integrate licensed IoT technologies, such as LTE-M or NB-IoT when they become commercially available, ensuring seamless service provisioning across the entire range of IoT applications.
Thanks to the ASSET suite’s flexible and forward-looking technology modeling, its customers can now benefit from these new IoT design capabilities without having to acquire new modules. This is in line with TEOCO’s philosophy of delivering products and services that provide continuous value to customers and ensure the highest ROI.
“IoT represents a significant commercial opportunity for mobile operators around the world,” said Daniel Ramirez, Director of RAN Products at TEOCO. “Each IoT service provider will have its own path, depending on their existing infrastructure and competitive pressures. Both licensed and unlicensed IoT technologies have a valuable role to play in helping operators monetize the IoT, but, to realize this, service providers must be able to model the costs and benefits of each option. The ASSET suite now offers this capability.”
