Telenor India and Huawei have jointly conducted trails of Lean Broadcast Control CHannel (BCCH) solutions in Bharuch, Gujarat.
According to Telenor, the technology can help in addressing spectrum scarcity and broadening the future of Narrowband-Internet of Things (NB-IoT) ecosystem in the country. Solutions based on the Lean BCCH technology will allow Telenor India to offer affordable mobile broadband services without any additional investment.
Lean BCCH compliments Lean GSM technology and uses GPS-based synchronisation andadvanced intelligent interference control management based on real time network conditions.
The technology can help the telecom industry in preparing their spectrum re-farming strategies and enable operators to deploy NB-IoT applications like smart parking, smart metering, watermeter, gas meter, electric meter and path tracking.
