Quectel Wireless Solutions announced that its NB-IoT modules BC95-G and BC68 have received certifications from SoftBank, one of the three main telecommunications carriers in Japan.
The two certifications will give IoT integrators, developers and OEMs ability to deploy both fixed and mobile IoT applications leveraging SoftBank's stable network in Japan.
Designed for global markets, BC95-G and BC68 are multi-band NB-IoT modules, both of which work on LTE FDD bands of B1/B8 on the carrier's network. They provide ideal solutions for a wide range of IoT applications such as smart metering, bike sharing, smart parking, smart city, security and asset tracking, smoking detectors, home appliances, agricultural and environmental monitoring, etc. Features like Power Save Mode (PSM) and Discontinuous Reception (DRX) give them potential to enable devices which require low power and long battery life.
BC95-G is pin to pin compatible with Quectel NB-IoT BC95 and Quectel GSM/GPRS M95 while BC68 is compatible with Quectel GSM/GPRS M66, which ensure customers to achieve smooth migration and upgrading by a simple drop-in replacement, cutting the design costs and development time as well as accelerating time to market for customers' products.
