Choose your ideal tariff

To give you suitable options for the most important use cases, we offer you two tariff variants: on the one hand, Business Smart Connect LPWA for IoT scenarios that require low data volumes and long battery runtimes, such as trackers, and on the other hand, Business Smart Connect M2M for typical machine-to-machine applications in production and logistics.

1. For IoT solutions with minimal data consumption –
Business Smart Connect LPWA

Do you want to transmit data directly from the sensor? Then the best building penetration and extremely long battery runtimes are important to you – this is what our Business Smart Connect LPWA tariff is optimized for. The abbreviation LPWA stands for "Low-Power Wide-Area" and refers to mobile network technologies that operate with extremely low power consumption. This tariff provides the NB-IoT, LTE-M and 2G radio networks. It is suitable for connecting IoT sensors that need to work with little power consumption and data volume, such as low-cost trackers, networked smoke detectors or sensors in water tanks. As a pure IoT tariff, it does not support voice telephony.

Details on the tariff

Business Smart Connect is a prepaid-like LPWA offer from Telekom Deutschland. The offer is aimed exclusively at business customers with a registered office and delivery address in Germany. By paying the one-time fee, delivery cost and SIM material cost (if appropriate) all costs are compensated. The SIM cards are provided pre-activated with a predefined inclusive volume (depending on the package: S, M, L) for a usage period of 60 months.

The inclusive volume includes a fixed SMS quota. SMS is often used for the so-called Wake-Up or Shoulder Tap, whereby SMS communication is only possible between the application server and the device (Mobile Terminated SMS = MT).

The respective contractual relationship for the SIM card has no minimum contract term and can be terminated on a monthly basis.

Due to the lower bandwidth of NB-IoT as a narrowband network as well as the special characteristics of NB-IoT modules, which are optimized for smaller data volumes, the data volume per SIM card is limited to 500KB per month when using NB-IoT. This restriction applies regardless of the booked data volume in the tariff. If this guideline value is exceeded, Telekom reserves the right to restrict the connection performance for NB-IoT.

Details on the order process

By clicking the order button, you are submitting a binding order and confirming the details in the order form. The contract is concluded upon receipt of the order confirmation or with delivery of the service at the latest. Upon payment of the amount due, you will receive an invoice via e-mail along with a link to log in to our Business Smart Connect Portal, where you can manage your SIM cards. Please note that the SIM cards will only be delivered when your payment has been received and the legitimacy check has been completed. At this time, you will receive a shipping confirmation.

2. For IoT applications in production and logistics –
Business Smart Connect M2M

You don't have any particular restrictions on your IoT application in terms of power consumption and data transmission? Then our Business Smart Connect M2M rate is the best choice. Optimized for machine-to-machine solutions in production and logistics, it uses our fast and reliable LTE and LTE-M networks and provides sufficient data volume. It is ideal for gateway solutions and for monitoring vehicles, goods or machines, for example. As it is a pure IoT tariff, it does not enable voice telephony.
