NB-IoT & LTE-M

Get your product directly on the mobile network

NB-IoT & LTE-M is a data network designed for Internet of Things and built into the existing mobile network worldwide.

 

Connect your products via the mobile network with NB-IoT & LTE-M

Our NB-IoT & LTE-M platform supports the standard technologies NB-IoT and LTE-M (CAT-NB2 / CAT-M), which are integrated into the customer’s products or design new Smart IoT products according to the customer’s needs.

The two technologies each have their field of ​​operation where NB-IoT is designed for the battery to last for many years with low data consumption which makes it suitable for Smart City sensors, energy meters and tracking devices. If a larger amount of data is required and power consumption is not so critical, LTE-M is better suited as with surveillance cameras and ‘voice’ products.

Our NB-IoT & LTE-M platform does also has Bluetooth Low Energy integrated, which enables you to connect directly to an app on a smartphone. This allows us to activate the device via an app and configure direct or read log files.

NB-IoT & LTE-M platform main features:

  • Wireless technologies; CAT-NB2 / CAT-M /Bluetooth Low Energy
  • Production tool, i.e. we have the equipment and IT systems to put products, based on our platform into production
  • Firmware-update over the Air
  • Geo-position at GNSS (GPS)
  • Integration of a wide range of sensor types such as temperature, humidity, vibration and more.
  •  API for customer software
  • Design-in on the customer’s products
  • Development of complete new IoT products
  • Primary battery pack designed for longevity (up to 10 years, depending on use cases)
  • Possibility of rechargeable battery, wireless charging (Qi) or fixed power supply (12 – 24 V)

Martin explains what NB-IoT is

NB-IoT & LTE-M technologies

Versatility:

Supports many different use cases: mobile/desktop products with low and high data speeds.

Scalability:

Based on the standard 3GPP-licensed frequency band, which provides universal accessibility with mobile networks supporting 2G, 3G, 4G and future 5G.

Power consumption:

Low power consumption – up to 10 years of battery life on each sensor.

Price:

Low cost compared to current modem technologies.

Range:

Expanded range compared to current 4G mobile phones.

eSIM:

With eSIM, you no longer have to worry about handling the physical SIM card as this is a software SIM card.

Based on current network infrastructure:

The latest standards (3GPP) only need SW updates to be supported on the current mobile network.
