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, so that the coverage in mainly buildings is many times better. LTE M enables fast data transmission in an energy-efficient manner and is suitable for various applications that now work with 2G.

How exactly does it work?

With LTE M communication, data is accessed from a ‘device’. A secured LTE M SIM card is placed in a ‘device’. The APN provided by us must be configured in the settings of the ‘device’. The intelligent LTE M SIM card 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?

First, LTE M is based on the global 3GPP standard of the GSMA, 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 devices connected to LTE-M can also go into a so-called ‘deep sleep’ mode or only wake up periodically while connected, this ensures a longer lifespan of devices that depend on a battery.

LTE M examples

Practical examples of customers who implement LTE M SIM cards 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 of the indoor climate with sensors that have been placed in offices and schools and collect measurement data from inverters that are connected to solar systems.
