Deutsche Telekom is currently testing for NB-IoT the Sequans NB01-Q reference module from Sequans. The plan is complete activities within the coming 4-5 weeks. Once all protocol stack issues are fixed, we will work with OEMs, such as Pycom to ensure that the certified protocol stack release from Sequans is integrated into their products.
Pycom’s G01, gpy and fipy modules will thereafter be tested and certified. We will then be able to provide you with documentation and support on these certified products.
It is true that there is no time synchronization in Germany. The CCLK feature does not work on the network in Germany. The manual of the n211 says it comes back with a +CCLK measage but in practice it only gives OK when this feature does not work on the network.
Unfortunately, there is no app for the iPhone because the iPhone would have installed an NB-IoT-capable modem upfront. The iPhones do not have it. The easiest way to check the data reception level is to use an NB-IoT modem.
I heard that a couple of improvements, including lower battery consumption, are part of the 3GPP release 14.
Did I understand correctly? If so:
What are T-Mobile’s timelines on this release?
If current boards are bought with formal support for Release 13, can they be upgraded if the manufacturer delivers new firmware or are these changes also hardware related so new hardware is needed?
