Trailblazing for the Internet of Things

Networked objects are the foundation of an intelligent world. But what will the basis of this Internet of Things be? The right network. Many IoT applications only send small amounts of data occasionally, making the networking standard NarrowBand IoT ideal for them. Simple wireless modules providing stripped-down and focused functionality makes NarrowBand IoT affordable and energy efficient. This, in turn, will enable IoT applications in many areas where networking was previously too expensive and difficult.

Your benefits with NarrowBand IoT in overview

Icon low energy consumption

Low energy consumption
NarrowBand IoT chips concentrate on wireless functionality for specific applications and have energy-saving capabilities like standby mode, tracking area updates and extended discontinuous reception, which ensure optimal energy efficiency.

Icon extensive range

Extensive range
NarrowBand IoT provides a link budget of +20 dB over the GSM wireless standard. Narrow-band modulation allows repeat broadcasting depending on the reception situation, ensuring better signal penetration deep inside buildings.

Icon low cost

Low cost
The industrial price target for end customers is under $5 for an NarrowBand IoT module. This is possible due to a simple chip design forgoing unnecessary LTE functions and high production volumes.

Icon LTE Basis

LTE basis
NarrowBand IoT is based on LTE and can be integrated in preexisting LTE infrastructure with a software upgrade. Since NarrowBand IoT can operate within both GSM and LTE spectrum, no new spectrum licensing is required.

Icon simple installation

Simple installation
Unlike sensors that can’t communicate over long distances, NarrowBand IoT works on a plug-and-play basis. This means sensors are connected directly to the NarrowBand IoT network, making the installation of local networks and gateways unnecessary.

Icon extremely secure

Extremely secure
NarrowBand IoT is a globally standardized technology using LTE security measures approved by 3GPP. NarrowBand IoT benefits from a large pool of international experts, who are constantly monitoring and improving its security functionality.
