MediaTek announced its MT2625 NB-IoT chip has been validated for LwM2M over NIDD on SoftBankCorp.’s cellular network across Japan.
This achievement marks the first global commercial readiness of LwM2M over NIDD; a secure, ultra-efficient IoT communications technique that is being adopted by operators worldwide. The benefits of LwM2M over NIDD include security improvements, cost-efficient scalability and reduced power consumption.
This collaboration builds a firm foundation for the IoT industry in Japan to embrace new IoT applications and services, accelerating market growth in the country.
IoT (mMTC) is driving over 50% of 5G use cases through devices such as smart meters, smoke detectors, logistics trackers, home appliances, smart city applications and much more. NB-IoT (Narrowband IoT) plays an important role in the IoT ecosystem, by connecting a wide range of data-efficient IoT devices. MediaTek is enabling the 5G IoT revolution that will connect billions of devices with its MT2625 chip, which offers leading NB-IoT capabilities and global operator support.
LwM2M standard is widely used in Asia, Europe and the United States by major operators, with NIDD (Non-IP Data Delivery) providing a highly data- and power-efficient communications protocol and an additional layer of security through pre-defined routing.
The MT2625 is a leading NB-IoT chip with wideband support for up to quad-band operation, allowing a single design to address worldwide markets, reducing cost and development time. The ultra-efficient MCU provides extensive peripheral I/O in a tiny package size for a wide variety of device possibilities. It is available now for NB-IoT device makers and commercial application developers.
