Smart meters, which may be located deep inside a building, can benefit from the enhanced sensitivity of NB-IoT, as it is designed to support low-power IoT applications that only require small data transfers with long latencies.
NB-IoT is well-suited for a variety of settings, including smart cities, industrial, agricultural, and residential areas, especially when monitoring attributes that change slowly, such as temperature and humidity. In such cases, NB-IoT's low-power, low-bandwidth capabilities enable long battery life and efficient data transfer.
Secure connectivity with NB-IoT
NB-IoT relies on the same security features as LTE based networks, making it ideal for applications that require secure communication. Its advanced security features ensure that data transmitted between devices is protected and secure.
