MediaTek has completed validation (interoperability tests) of NB-IoT connectivity with SoftBank to support future commercial NB-IoT applications within Japan.

As a result of these tests, MediaTek's NB-IoT chipset has been validated for use on the SoftBank network, the company said. MediaTek unveiled its MT2625 NB-IoT System-on-a-Chip (SoC) for light and small IoT devices.

The MT2625 chipset supports a full frequency band (from 450MHz to 2.1GHz) of 3GPP Release13 (NB1) and Release14 (NB2) standards for a wide range of IoT applications including smart home control, logistics tracking and smart meters.
