SHENZHEN, China -- ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, was the first in the industry to demonstrate the verification based on Narrowband-Internet of Things (NB-IoT) standards in China Mobile (CMCC)’s 5G innovation laboratory on the 31st May 2016 during the 1st Global 5G Event. Since the 3GPP NB-IoT standards are expected to be frozen late June, ZTE is following the 3GPP standardisation carefully and is ready to launch a series of new technologies and products. This demo supports the coming CMCC IoT Developer Conference that will occur early June. And this demonstration also showed ZTE’s innovation capability in IoT, which will enable the company to promote the rapid development of the NB-IoT ecosystem.

The network functions virtualization (NFV)-based virtual core network was used in this NB-IoT demonstration. ZTE’s mature 4G base station simulated the real commercial environment, and demoed the basic NB-IoT services and some crucial features. This demo indicates that the NB-IoT system is maturing.

As the NB-IoT technologies and ecosystem are developing quickly, the MIIT held an NB-IoT conference mid-April 2016 to promote NB-IoT standards and the industry’s maturity. Looking ahead, the NB-IoT technologies will deliver ubiquitous cellular IoT coverage by 2020. The commercialisation of NB-IoT greatly expands the possibilities of the communications industry. Together with its global partners, ZTE has been promoting and validating the NB-IoT technologies development, and has witnessed the large-scale commercialisation of NB-IoT technologies.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
