Telenor Myanmar recently conducted trial of Narrow Band Internet of Things (NB-IoT) technology on 4G LTE network with Ericsson.
The successful trial was conducted in Mandalay in early November with a scope to test and highlight the NB-IoT capability of the Telenor Myanmar LTE Network with the initial focus being to demonstrate the capability of NB-IoT devices on IoT platforms. Devices and use cases were tested on infrastructure such as transport vehicles for mobility and business establishments for ambient sensors within the trial zone.
The advanced NB -IoT network technology once deployed, will help accelerate the proliferation of IoT devices, said Ericsson. It will further develop the IoT ecosystem in the country by offering superior coverage, long battery life and cost-effective solutions to enterprises. The NB-IoT network will amplify opportunity for solutions such as Smart Metering for utilities, Smart Parking, Smart Bins, smart environmental sensors for smart cities, logistic solutions as well as other applications in environment management to name a few.
