Telefónica Group awarded certification to an Internetof Things (IoT) module from Chinese supplier Quectel Wireless Solutions. The pair have engaged in collaborations to develop the narrowband IoT (NB‑IoT) module BC95‑G, which can be used in smart meters and smart city management use‑cases. Its low‑energy consumption enables an operating life of up to 15 years, and is compatible with a number of other Quectel modules. Norbert Muhrer, Quectel President, noted that the product was the result of “close collaboration with Telefónica”, and that it will be used to “accelerate worldwide IoT deployments”. The supplier is working with Telefónica to deploy the module in smart city developments.
