Narrowband-IoT: pushing the boundaries of IoT

White Paper

White Papers | February 2017

Narrowband-IoT (NB-IoT) is a new standard connecting internet of things projects.

This paper gives technical decision-makers an overview of NB-IoT, the communications technology that will underpin industrial-grade internet of things deployments.


What you will learn in this white paper

The right connectivity can make or break your IoT project. We believe that NB-IoT is the right option for most low-power, wide-area (LPWA), business IoT use cases.

A number of different technologies have been developed to fulfil LPWA requirements. Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) not only offers enterprise-grade technical specifications, but is also the practical choice for carriers, device manufacturers and ultimately enterprise users. To understand why NB-IoT is uniquely suited to business IoT deployments, we compare NB-IoT against two LPWA alternatives, LoRa and Sigfox.
