Narrowband-IoT (NB-IoT) is a type of Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) radio technology that connects devices to the Internet of Things (IoT). Things that could never be connected before are now part of an LTE-based network with excellent coverage, running on a licensed spectrum. Vodacom NB-IoT offers deep coverage, low-cost hardware, and long battery life.
The key benefits of Narrowband IoT
Strong coverage over large areas, even underground or deep within urban infrastructure over a massive scale and a low bandwidth.
Long battery life
Great power efficiency and devices can run on batteries for 10 years or more without a recharge.
Significantly reduced device complexity, functionality, and capability, thus lowering costs.
