Bournemouth, UK, 25th Sep 2017 – Communications Consultants Worldwide Ltd. (CCww), global innovator of 3GPP technologies has licensed its
NB-IoT protocol-stack software to a leading Shanghai and Silicon Valley based developer of highly integrated and unique mixed-signal SoC solutions. This relationship, catalyzed by T2M, will enable the production of the highly integrated NB-IoT SoC chipset targeting IoT, Logistics, Smart metering, Health and Fitness markets.
NB-IoT (Narrow-Band Internet-of-Things) is the future global solution to low-cost and low-power for cellular machine-to-machine connectivity, for use in metering, telematics, security… where very low maintenance and up to 10-years battery-life are required. CCww’s NB-IoT R13 Protocol-stack SW is enabling chip manufacturers and module manufacturers to rapidly enter the market with small-footprint, broadly-tested, and stable SW. R14 is under development, and will be available in 2Q18.
CCww’s CEO, Richard Carter, said, "NB-IoT is CCww’s latest cellular Protocol-stack SW, in a long history of protocol-stack development. We are excited to be working with our latest licensee to enable a sector-leading NB-IoT SoC, which will push back boundaries of performance and efficiency for the next generation of IoT.”
Nigel Dixon, CEO of T2M, remarked “Our global relationships in the semiconductor market coupled with our extensive expertise in wireless semiconductor technology enabled us to join the latest licensee with a leading NB-IOT protocol-stack SW and support provider, to take them through integration, certification and mass deployment. We are excited to be enabling companies to build leadership products with our clients’ state-of-the-art technologies”.
CCww has been developing, licensing and supporting embedded 3GPP protocol stack software to leading global mobile players since 2000; more than 3 Billion devices have been manufactured using CCww technology.
