Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) is a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) radio technology standard developed for a wide range of cellular IoT devices and services.
NB-IoT focuses specifically on indoor coverage, low cost, long battery life, and high connection density. NB-IoT uses a subset of the LTE standard, but limits the bandwidth to a single narrow-band of 200kHz.
NB-IoT provides very good coverage in dense areas and deep inside buildings or underground with very low power consumption. In many cases, battery life is over 10 years. Supported by a massive number of devices and a very cheap devices NB-IoT technology promises to provide a cost-effective solution for years to come.
LPWAN is a category of wireless communications with technologies like LoRaWAN, Sigfox, NB-IoT, LTE-M, and more. It is used in places, where the situation needs a low-energy cost solutions and small data transfers. This way of communication is suitable especially for battery-powered devices. A good example could be a device that sends readings from a sensor.
NB-IoT Antennas are designed and constructed for narrowband technology. They are precisely tuned to a narrow frequency. Good choose of right NB-IOT antenna can bring smooth running of your IoT service.
