Qualcomm Technologies and Alibaba announced that they have ported Alibaba Cloud Link One to run on the Qualcomm MDM9206 global multi-mode LTE IoT modem.

This effort showcases how, by pre-integrating the Alibaba Cloud Link One on to the MDM9206 modem, module manufacturers and IoT developers can quickly develop and deploy solutions that connect with the Alibaba Cloud using LTE IoT connectivity and client software running directly on the LTE system-on-chip (SoC).

Tight and cost-effective integration between edge devices and the cloud, exemplified by this demonstration, helps address a vast array of the existing and emerging LTE IoT use cases, including smart transportation (e.g. bike sharing), smart cities, as well as industrial IoT applications in areas such as smart grid, smart metering (e.g. electricity, gas, water), asset tracking and more.

The MDM9206 LTE IoT modem is purpose-built to support global multimode capabilities, supporting both eMTC (Cat M1) and NB-IoT (Cat NB-1), as well as 2G/E-GPRS, and enables the development of cost-efficient, low-power devices with multi-year battery life and greater coverage for the next-generation of IoT services as compared to traditional LTE connectivity, said Qualcomm.

Ku Wei, VP of Alibaba Group and GM of Alibab Cloud IoT
Integrated cloud-to-device solutions using the Alibaba Cloud Link One and Qualcomm Technologies’ LTE IoT modems have the potential to help accelerate development of a broad range of commercial and industrial applications such as smart biking, home smart locks and smart energy in China.

Sun Gang, VP of Sales and Product Marketing 
We are excited about the new solutions that manufacturers and IoT developers can create with the power of LTE IoT connectivity providing access to the Alibaba Cloud.
