Worldwide Rollout of Cellular IoT
April 08, 2019 / Peder Rand
The global rollout of cellular IoT networks is gathering pace to support new NB-IoT and LTE-M solutions. We’ve rounded up many of the important announcements. The latest mobile network to support Internet of Things implementations consists of two new communication technologies: NarrowBand IoT (NB-IoT) and LTE-M. NB-IoT provides excellent coverage and is ideal for things that run on batteries and only occasionally send data via the network. LTE-M has much in common, but can send more data faster and offers end-to-end TLS security, so it’s best suited to mobile sensors or those that send data more frequently.
