Qualcomm and Alibabahave joined forces to boost LTE IoT deployment in China by pre-integrating the Alibaba Cloud Link One on to the MDM9206 multi-mode LTE IoT modem. The move enables module manufacturers and IoT developers to quickly develop and deploy solutions that connect with the Alibaba Cloud using LTE IoT connectivity and client software running directly on the LTE system-on-chip (SoC). The integration also helps address a vast array of the existing and emerging LTE IoT use cases, including smart transportation (e.g. bike sharing), smart cities as well as industrial IoT applications in areas such as smart grid, smart metering (e.g. electricity, gas, water), asset tracking and more, Qualcomm said in a statement.
ZTEhas released a new generation of its ThingxCloud IoT platform products. Based on oneM2M's technology architecture and ICT PaaS/AI & Big Data, ZTE’s ThingxCloud includes IoT devices, connection management and application enabling management. It adapts to various bearer networks, and shields differences among different bearer network technologies so as to make the upper applications transparent on the underlying bearer network.
