Singtel trials RedCap technology for IoT devices

RedCap technology reduces power consumption by 60% and device production costs by 50% to 70%.

Singtel, with Ericsson and MediatEK, has completed Singapore's first trial of “RedCap" on a live 5G network.

RedCap can support mid-tier Internet of Things (IoT) devices, like smartwatches and industrial sensors.

RedCap technology provides IoT devices with lower data flow and reliable connectivity, which reduces power consumption by 60%.

Through RedCap, businesses can address the challenges of battery replacements in IoT devices and lower device production costs by 50% to 70%.

It will also help facilitate the transition of IoT devices from Long-Term Evolution (LTE) to New Radio (NR) for better connectivity and more reliable user experiences to develop more innovative use cases.
