Telefónica Certifies Quectel's NB-IoT Module with Subscription Swap Capabilities

Release time: January 15, 2020  Source: Quectel  Click: 805 times


Quectel Wireless Solutions, a leading global supplier of Internet of Things (IoT) modules, has been collaborating with Telefónica, one of the largest carriers in the world who has been recognized for its vision and execution capabilities in IoT.


As a result of the collaboration, Quectel has recently received certification of its LTE Cat NB2 (NB-IoT) module BC95-G from Telefónica, which includes subscription swap capabilities based on GSMA V3.2 standards.

These subscription swap capabilities are useful in Smart Metering (water, gas, electricity) and Smart Cities (waste managedent, parking, streetlight, pollution monitoring and more). For example, smart meters need to be deployed for 10-15 years and are often located in hard to reach locations, typically making the service cost of replacing subscriptions high. Additionally, subscription swap technology can help simplify the deployment, management and security implementation of future-proof smart meter devices.

Norbert Muhrer, Quectel's President and CSO, commented that,“after close collaboration with Telefónica teams, our BC95-G module is reliable, well tested and proven in its capabilities for operating on Telefónica's NB-IoT network. Now customers can accelerate their IoT deployments worldwide.”




The Telefónica-certified BC95-G is a high-performance NB-IoT module that supports multiple frequency bands of B1/B3/B5/B8/B20/B28 with extremely low power consumption. Designed for size sensitive applications and compatible with Quectel GSM/GPRS M95 and LPWA BC95 modules, it provides a flexible and scalable platform for new NB-IoT use cases. 

Telefónica is currently working with customers on Smart Metering and Smart City projects to be deployed as a result of this achievement in Quectel BC95-G module.
