What is NB-IOT?

Narrowband IoT, also known as LTE Cat NB1, is an LPWAN technology that is on the rise. It connects devices more easily and more efficiently on the already established 4G (LTE) mobile network. NB-IoT is designed to receive and send small amounts of data and is completely secure and reliable. NB-IoT uses a specific frequency that is strong enough to pass through thick walls and can even be used underground. As a result, it offers coverage in challenging situations.

How exactly does it work?

With NB-IOT communication, data is accessed from a ‘device’. A secure NB-IOT simcard is placed in a ‘device’. The APN provided by us must be configured in the settings of the ‘device’. The intelligent NB-IOT simcard then has access to the NB-IOT network. The ‘device’ can then establish a successful connection and is assigned an IP address.

What are the benefits of NB-IOT?

NB-IoT is designed to keep the costs pro ‘device’ as low as possible. It is expected that the costs will be lower in the future than with other connectivity options. Due to a small memory and the use of only one antenna, NB-IoT is cheaper than, for example, M2M. There is no need for full duplex operation. Duplex operation means that information is received and sent simultaneously.

NB-IOT examples?

Practical examples of customers who implement NB-IOT simcards from Thingsdata for: remote reading of groundwater or surface water level by means of innovative sensors, unlocking valuable data with sensors placed in homes and collecting measurement data from inverters that are connected to solar systems.
