Along with Telstra, Ericsson has deployed and tested network functionality that enables NB-IoT data connections up to 100km from a base-station in Telstra’s commercial network. The technology breakthrough, designed by Ericsson, extends the 3GPP standards-based limit from around 40km out to 100km and is activated entirely through software upgrades, with no changes required to NB-IoT devices. The innovation opens up the huge opportunities that IoT represents in rural and regional areas for both Australia and globally, particularly for logistics and agriculture.
By launching the world’s first 5G service through smartphone in 2019 April, all customers will be able to use 5G and the 4th Industrial Revolution will accelerate further.
