Nurlink Technology has successfully completed the first OTA call on China Telecom’s NB-IoT network using the company’s NK6010 NB-IoT SoC.

The test was carried out in Nanjing, China, with the Nurlink SoC connecting to China Telecom’s Cloud IoT Platform over the NB-IoT network. The test represented an important milestone towards the mass market production of Nurlink’s CEVA-Dragonfly NB2 based SoC.

NK6010 is a low cost and low power NB-IoT SoC for narrowband connectivity in mass market IoT devices. Built using the CEVA-Dragonfly NB2 solution, the SoC incorporates RF front-end, RF transceiver, cellular baseband, power management unit and application processor, to minimise the chip size and cost of the solution. It supports full NB-IoT frequency bands with major global carriers. The SoC also includes an extremely low-power multi-GNSS subsystem, which supports GPS/Beidou/Galileo/GLONASS global navigation systems. This subsystem allows fast positioning while also supporting accurate device tracking.

The CEVA-Dragonfly NB2 IP solution is composed of the CEVA-X1 IoT processor, an optimised RF Transceiver, baseband, and a protocol stack to offer a complete Release 14 Cat-NB2 modem IP solution that quickens time-to-market and lowers entry barriers. It is a software-configurable solution and can be extended with multi-constellation GNSS and sensor fusion functionality. The IP includes a reference silicon of the complete modem design, including an embedded CMOS RF transceiver and PA, an advanced digital front-end, physical layer firmware, and a protocol stack. (MAC, RLC, PDCP, RRC, and NAS).
