MegaFon signs IoT agreement with Huawei, moves forward with NB-IoT


Russian cellco MegaFon and Chinese technology giant Huawei have signed an agreement on cooperation in implementing Internet of Things (IoT) platforms.

A press release also claims that MegaFon is the first Russian company to begin developing integrated solutions via the Narrow Band-IoT (NB-IoT) standard. MegaFon adds that the first devices with support for NB-IoT technology are expected to become commercially available in late 2016 to early 2017.

NB-IoT technology works in LTE networks and will be relevant in further transition phases to fifth generation (5G) standards. MegaFon is a member of the worldwide GSMA NB-IoT Forum, which includes the world’s largest mobile groups (e.g. China Mobile, Deutsche Telekom, Vodafone) working with leading technology providers (e.g. Huawei, Intel, Qualcomm).
