Espoo, Finland, Feb. 6, 2018:  French power utility EDF’s R&D unit has selected Nokia to test the performance of LPWA wireless networking technologies – key emerging standards for Internet of Things (IoT) device connectivity – to support critical operations for industries.

A statement said the two companies will engage in a comprehensive testing regime, among the first of its kind in the industry, exploring the capabilities of LPWA technologies to support real-world industrial applications. Nokia is EDF R&D’s exclusive partner for this effort.

EDF R&D will utilize Nokia TestHub Services in Nokia’sDevice Testing Lab in France – which gives customers access to state-of-the-art, carrier-grade wireless infrastructure – when testing IoT/M2M objects, chipsets, modules and user devices across all wireless technologies and frequencies. This enables devices to be tested on real network infrastructure rather than a simulated network, which reduces guesswork in testing and analysis and minimizes risks in advance of widespread commercial introduction.

The testing will compare IoT technologies recently standardized by the 3G Partnership Project (3GPP) – including NarrowBand-IoT (NB-IoT) and LTE-Machine (LTE-M) (also known as enhanced Machine-Type Communications or eMTC) – with other emerging, largely unlicensed IoT technologies.
