For many years, smart meter rollouts have been ongoing throughout the world, and millions of devices have already been installed. As utility firms look for more precise, granular, and reliable data to conduct their businesses more efficiently, significant and sustained growth is anticipated. A smart meter must be linked by definition to transmit data, making connectivity a crucial necessity. A novel method of connecting with "things" that need to send short bursts of data over long distances and in remote locations is called NB IoT (Narrowband Internet of Things).

What is Narrow Band IoT?

The Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technology known as NB IoT, commonly referred to as LTE Cat NB1, operates almost everywhere. NB IoT speed efficiency handles tiny amounts of infrequent two-way communication safely and reliably and links IoT devices more quickly and effectively over established mobile networks. The best part is that it offers:

Outstanding prolonged range in buildings and basements

Very low power consumption

Easy implementation into the established cellular network architecture

Network security and dependability

Lower component cost.

How does it meet the challenges?

NB IoT speed contributes to a wireless future with strong, reliable connectivity. Numerous potential "connected things" are situated in difficult-to-reach places, far from the nearest cellular base station, or in shielded locations, like underground or deep inside buildings. Even when there is coverage, it is frequently insufficient and necessitates the device transmitter to run at a high power, which depletes the battery. Besides, cellular networks are not designed to support apps that only send sparse, irregular quantities of data. Also, the current cellular standards do not offer power-saving features, making them unsuitable for low-cost devices that need batteries to last for several years.

The Internet of Things will include many more devices thanks to NB-IoT, enabling a tonne of brand-new applications. Applications that must transmit little amounts of data over extended periods benefit from its optimization. Since it uses a licensed spectrum, it is safe, dependable, and offers service with a guarantee of quality. Because NB IoT speed applications don't require all of the capabilities of other cellular air interfaces, using them would be prohibitively expensive for a typical NB-IoT application. Applications for the NB-IoT place a strong emphasis on low speed, reliable data transfer, and a suitable level of reliability. A cheap gadget lowers the cost of installation and lessens the chance of theft.

What is the future of NB IoT?

Smart Metering: Gas and water meter monitoring can be accomplished with the NB IoT speed concept using frequent, tiny data transmissions. Rollouts of smart meters face significant network coverage challenges. Meters frequently appear in challenging locations, such as cellars, subterranean tunnels, or isolated rural areas. To solve this problem, NB-IoT has brought up outstanding coverage and penetration.

Smart City: Local government can use NB IoT speed and power consumption to manage street lights, decide when trash cans need to be emptied, locate open parking spaces, keep an eye on the weather, and assess the state of the roads.

Consumers: Wearable technology will receive long-range connectivity through NB IoT speed devices, which is especially useful for tracking people and animals. Similar to this, NB IoT can be used to track the health of people with age or chronic diseases.
