Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) at a glance

Low cost, low power and excellent range

Excellent Range and Penetration

With a maximum theoretical link budget of 164 dB, NB-IoT offers the best range and penetration capabilities, making it ideal for applications in remote areas or inside buildings where signal strength can be a challenge.

Low Power Consumption

Power Saving Mode (PSM) and Extended Discontinuous Reception (eDRX) features drastically reduce energy usage and enable longer battery life for your IoT devices. These are critical features for devices intended to operate for long periods without the need for frequent battery replacements or recharging.

Low Cost

The reduced complexity of radio signal processing simplifies chipset design, leading to module costs that can be as low as 20% of traditional LTE module prices.

All you need to know about NB-IoT

Global Roaming

NB-IoT roaming is currently limited, with only a few providers offering multi-network NB-IoT access for global IoT deployments. As the industry shifts from a purely volume-based intercarrier billing model to one incorporating base pricing per device, we anticipate a broader global reach.

PSM and eDRX Availability

PSM and eDRX are essential for maximizing power efficiency in cellular LPWAN. It’s vital to ensure they are compatible with your NB-IoT network services, particularly in use-cases where low power consumption is paramount.

Technology Adoption

Although the NB-IoT standardization process was finalized in 2016, the technology roll-out has been slow. To date, NB-IoT has been deployed in fewer than one-third of all countries.

NB-IoT Hardware Recommendations

Given the current state of global NB-IoT deployment, we recommend utilizing cellular LPWAN modules that not only support NB-IoT but also offer fallback to common RAT types. Contact one of our experts to help you with your module selection.
