L&T Technology Services (LTTS) has partnered with California based Cadence Design Systems to launch its new NB-IoT (Narrow Band – Internet of Things) protocol stack nB-on.
nB-on will be hosted on Cadence’s Tensilica platform and is an innovative offering from LTTS utilizing NB-IoT designed with low memory and low power footprint enabling easy integration to custom target platforms.
Cadence’s Tensilica solution can be integrated into system-on-chip (SoC) devices to deliver fast time to market with low risk through pre-verified and pre-certified intellectual property (IP).
LTTS is a prime mover in India leveraging its IoT, IIoT and NB-IoT prowess for developing smart cities under the Smart Cities Mission by the Indian government. The company is contributing significantly to the L&T Group’s asset management projects and turnkey solutions for smart cities, smart communication systems and security solutions.
Ashish Khushu, Chief Technology Officer at L&T Technology Services said, “Our partnership with Cadence Technologies involves integrating nB-on with Cadence’s popular Tensilica platform, which will result in cost effective use cases for a multitude of functions ranging from smart parking management, smart meters to modern fleet and waste management. Our combined NB-IoT package will provide enhanced IoT connectivity, lowering deployment & maintenance costs while supporting a large number of devices.”
Gerard Andrews, director of marketing for Tensilica products at Cadence said, “From wearables to smart city to industrial applications, this new class of IoT SoCs will require solid modem IP and a strong engineering services partner. With L&T Technology’s fully tested NB-IoT modem IP and proven engineering team, they can reduce risk and time to market for companies looking to enter the emerging NB-IoT SoC market.”
