Large North American network operators are starting to deploy Cat-M1 from this April and further introductions in Japan, Europe and North America are expected during 2017. In addition, NB-IoT is announced for services in Europe, China and South Korea.
For the future, these IoT communications technologies are expected to see active adoption in various fields, including smart meters, home-security systems, lighting, freight tracking, vending machines, health care appliances, and many more.
With this GCF certification, the unit is world leader with more than 70 test cases for frequency bands in Japan, North America, and Europe.
Anritsu also expects the tester to lead GCF/PTCRB certification for NB-IoT alongside Cat-M1.
The company is continuing to focus efforts on developing conformance test systems to assist further development and deployment of IoT technologies.
