"In order to become a 3GPP standard, an initiative has to graduate from being a study item to a work item. Traditionally, 3GPP requires four companies to support an initiative for it to become a work item. PolicyTracker understands that Nokia Networks supports GSM Evolution but is focussing its cellular IoT efforts on the LTE-M programme. Whether GSM Evolution can become a work item in time for 3GPP Release 13 is unclear." "There was consolidation among advocates for a clean slate approach to the IoT in September as telecoms giant Huawei acquired UK-based Neul for a sum that PolicyTracker understands to be in the r"
