According to a recent announcement, CEVA, a licensor of wireless connectivity and smart sensing technologies, has earned certification from Deutsche Telekom, integrated telecommunications company, for its Dragonfly NB2 NB-IoT solution. The company said that this milestone will help Dragonfly NB2 IP licensees to simplify and accelerate their NB-IoT chipset certification for use on Deutsche Telekom’s networks.

“Achieving certification from a reputable and stringent operator like Deutsche Telekom is a crucial milestone for the maturity of our DragonFly NB2 solution,” said Ange Aznar, VP and GM, Wireless IoT Business Unit, CEVA. “Licensable, certified NB-IoT solutions play a critical role in the mass adoption of NB-IoT by lowering the cost and entry barriers for semiconductors and OEMs to include cellular LPWAN connectivity in their chip designs. We are very proud of our engineering team for delivering a fully qualified turn-key solution, including baseband, protocol stack and RF. The Deutsche Telekom operator certification is another major step in our mission to help our LPWAN customers get to market faster with low risk and we look forward to seeing CEVA-powered NB-IoT devices running on Deutsche Telekom’s networks.”

CEVA-Dragonfly NB2 is designed to be cost- and power-efficient , and includes modem DSP, baseband, embedded RF and power management together with on-chip SRAM and Flash memories within a System-on-Chip (SOC) architecture, according to the release. The modem firmware reportedly is compliant with 3GPP Release 14, Category-NB2, and the platform is ready to support release 15 via a firmware upgrade. To maximize battery life, CEVA says modem supports Extended DRX, PSM, and NIDD (Non-IP Data Delivery) communication protocol to improve data and power efficiency for low throughput devices.

“Deutsche Telekom is pleased to certify CEVA’s Dragonfly NB2 IP solution,” said Uday Patil, Head of IoT Devices, Deutsche Telekom. “The certification of the Dragonfly NB2 platform secures out-of-the-box interoperability and higher connectivity quality for the next generation of modules and devices being developed to operate on our networks.
