NB-IoT Devices: modems, routers, DCUs, gateways
Narrowband-IoT (and LTE Cat.M, Cat.NB) are a fast-growing industrial Low Power Wide-Area Network (LPWAN) technology classified as a 4G/5G technology, and very well suited for applications that require small data transfers over a long period of time.
Low amounts of transferred data results in lower operation costs. Some NB-IoT devices are designed to consume significantly less power resulting in a significantly longer battery life (10 years), which alllows for autonomous operation in remote locations with limited access power sources.
4G LTE IoT devices are considered future-proof, as LTE-M and NB-IoT devices are expected to work with 5G networks using the non-standalone (NSA) architecture.
Why choose us:
Advantages of NB-IoT:
WM Systems has years of experience in developing NB-IoT devices. We offer a wide range of M2M product for this cellular network:
Most industrial IoT (IIoT) solutions need only a low bandwidth, reliable connectivity, and extended battery life. Price is also an important factor: NB-IoT devices have a significantly lower price point than 3G/4G devices.
