Use the NB-IoT coverage of the 1NCE IoT SIM as a smarter connectivity solution for your IoT application. commonly rely on such mobile radio standards as 2G, 3G, 4G and LTE-M, there are also other use cases where NB-IoT is more suitable because of its key properties.
These two properties of NB-IoT are its high range and penetration rate as well as its energy-saving features. NB-IoT coverage means it should be used for devices that are located far below the earth’s surface and for which no mobile radio connection could otherwise be established via the common radio standards. Furthermore, NB-IoT is also suitable for cases where devices are expected to have a long service life and they only need a connection to the network every now and then. With NB-IoT, devices can be put into a deep sleep during the times when they do not need to measure, send and receive data, in the so-called “power saving mode”. This saves the device battery consumption, which means that the device can remain connected to the network and in use for a long time without external power supply or maintenance.
The big advantage of choosing the 1NCE IoT SIM is that you do not have to decide on a single radio standard for your IoT application. The 1NCE IoT SIM card has an innovative multi-mode functionality. This allows the SIM to connect to all available wireless standards (2G, 3G, 4G, LTE-M) in addition to NB-IoT and seamlessly switch between them as needed. All with a single SIM card and at a single price.
