Effnet Licenses NB-IoT Compression Tech to US Company | Light Reading
Lule� — Effnet AB, a subsidiary of Effnetplattformen AB and the premier provider of header compression software for wireless and fixed networks, announces that it has licensed its header compression technology to an US based company for use in Narrow Band-IoT (NB-IoT) and Cat-M terminals.
The number of NB-IoT and Cat-M devices and networks are growing steadily. These 3GPP IoT technologies are set to become the dominant low power wide area (LPWA) technologies globally. It is expected that they will enable a huge IoT market growth. Some of the application areas of NB-IoT and Cat-M are; autonomous vehicles, smart homes, agriculture, robotics, smart industry, smart cities and smart energy. As the number of connected devices and the amount of data transferred on these networks increase, the need for efficient use of radio spectrum becomes more obvious.
