NB-IoT available in many countries
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.
Shape the future with the help of NB-IoT
With the help of NB-IoT, a large number of sensors can be easily integrated into smart cities applications. Whether these are used on intelligent street lights or in multi-storey car parks, NB-IoT is the perfect solution for various IoT projects in smart cities thanks to its low power consumption and large area coverage.
NB-IoT properties are well-suited to smart metering in electricity, gas and water networks. Smart meters measure the near real time consumption of electricity, gas or water within these networks. These connect to the central system and can thus send power-saving, efficient measurements at pre-configured time intervals, receive information and ultimately greatly increase network efficiency. These smart meters provide grid operators with near real time insights to improve their network efficiency as part of their smart grid initiatives.
Sentinum has developed a Smart Corona alarm connected by NB-IoT. After scientists discovered that the Corona virus is most likely to be transmitted through the air we breathe, Sentinum developed the Febris CO2 sensor to measure the quality of the air breathed based on the levels of CO2. When CO2 levels exceed a predetermined limits, the sensor triggers an alarm to allow uses to manage their desired ventilation levels.
To meet the challenge of collecting and analysing data as quickly as possible, Sentinum needed an energy-saving mobile connectivity solution with good building penetration. NB-IoT is the perfect solution for this. Sentinum uses our 1NCE IoT Flat Rate as an Industrial IoT eSIM for their CO2 sensor and thus has the mobile connectivity soldered directly onto the sensor’s PCB. The transparent connectivity costs could be calculated directly into the sale price of their solution.
Our 1NCE IoT Flat Rate is available at a one-time cost of 10 Dollars for 10 years. It can be offered as IoT FlexSIM, Industrial IoT eSIM, Blockchain on a SIM and China+. Let us convince you of the included features and our worldwide country coverage and use our IoT Flat Rate as a solution for your IoT projects.
