While many IoT use cases commonly rely on such mobile radio standards as 2G, 3G, 4G and LTE-M, there are other use cases where NB-IoT is more suitable.
Two properties of NB-IoT in particular are significant here: its high range and penetration rate as well as its energy-saving nature . NB-IoT coverage should therefore 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 areas where devices are expected to last a long time and only need a connection to the network every now and then.
