LTE M simcards

Connectiviteit LTE M

LTE M subscription

With LTE M it is possible to connect installations, equipment and sensors remotely via LTE M simcards. The LTE M network has been specially developed for IoT applications and is based on the reliable and secure 4G networks of the providers. The coverage of LTE M is stronger than a 2G network and has a deeper penetration in buildings. LTE M allows fast data transmission in an energy-efficient way and it is suitable for various applications that now work with 2G.

Frequently asked questions about LTE M

What is LTE M?

The LTE M network has been specially developed for Internet of Things applications and is based on the reliable and secure 4G networks of the providers. The coverage of LTE M is stronger than a 2G network and has the advantage of a deeper penetration rate, which means that the coverage in mainly buildings is many times better. LTE M allows fast data transmission in an energy-efficient way and it is suitable for various applications that now work with 2G.

How does it exactly works?

With LTE M communication, data is accessed from a device. A secured LTE M simcard is placed in a device. The APN provided by us must be configured in the device settings. The intelligent LTE M simcard then has access to the LTE M network. The device can then establish a successful connection and is assigned an IP address.

What are the benefits of LTE M?

Firstly, LTE M is based on the GSMA's global 3GPP standard, which offers possibilities for roaming abroad. The available cellular modules for LTE M are also relatively inexpensive, because of half duplex and a narrower bandwidth. The LTE-M connected devices can also go into a so-called 'deep sleep' mode or only periodically wake up while connected, which ensures a longer life for devices that depend on a battery.

LTE M examples

Practical examples of customers who implement LTE M simcards from Thingsdata for: remote reading of temperature, humidity, light intensity and CO2 values ​​by means of innovative sensors in greenhouse complexes in the agricultural sector, unlocking valuable data about the indoor climate with sensors that are installed in offices and schools and collect measurement data from inverters that are linked to solar systems.
