NB-IoT is designed to send small packets of data ensuring long battery operation. The key advantage of this communication technique is that the user does not need to build infrastructure that allows sensors to transmit data to a server – it can use the connectivity provided by the network operator. As a result, the installation and maintenance of sensors is much simpler and cheaper – the user takes the sensor out of the box, registers it on the server platform, and starts monitoring the selected parameter.
THE Application benefitS & customers benefit of nb-iot
Using NB-IoT in environmental condition monitoring systems, greatly reduces the cost of implementation and use of the system by about 30-40% compared to traditional sensor solutions.
The key advantage of this communication technique is that the user does not need to build infrastructure needed for a sensors to transmit data to the Cloud – sensors use connectivity provided by the network operator (telcos).
As a result, the installation and maintenance of sensors is much simpler and cheaper.
Another benefit is that NB-IoT sensors are optimized to operate effectively on battery (up to 5 years maintenance-free operation – depending on the configuration). NB-IoT has been designed for deep penetration of walls and concrete well and to provide connectivity in places which are hard to reach (e.g ceilings and basements) which allows users to monitor conditions basically anywhere.
