Low power consumption

NB-IoT’s low power attribute makes it perfect for connecting battery-powered smart devices.

Low frequency, high penetration

NB-IoT is a low power wide area network (LPWAN) technology that offers low frequency connectivity for long-range communication with better penetration capabilities than 2G. Narrowband IoT is designed to keep your devices connected in hard-to-reach places such as underground locations and deep urban infrastructure.

LPWAN technology

LPWA networks communicate wirelessly over long distances whilst maintaining low power consumption. Due to its wide signal coverage and maximised energy-efficiency, LPWAN is shaping the future of IoT connectivity. In fact, the number of devices connected via LPWAN is increasing at a rate of 109% each year.

  • LPWAN devices can run on batteries for 10 years+ without a single charge
  • Receive long-range connectivity, even in underground locations such as car parks and basements
  • LPWAN is low-bandwidth – most applications only require a few bytes per day

How does NB-IoT stack up against the competition?

NB-IoT technology utilises the licensed spectrum for device connectivity, meaning it comes with the security features used by MNOs. Competitors of NB-IoT, Sigfox and LoRaWAN, use the unlicensed spectrum where interference and security vulnerabilities are much more likely to occur, limiting the quality of service. NB-IoT gives you peace of mind when it comes to network and data security.
