The Internet of Things (IoT) promises unlimited opportunities and possibilities for almost every industry. However, to provide optimum value, IoT devices must be connected to the right network infrastructure.
Until recently, there was no reliable infrastructure available offering low-power, low-cost and long-range capabilities. For smart meters deployed in challenging locations with little or no wireless connectivity, this was a problem. Without reliable connectivity, customers and utility companies are unable to experience the many benefits these devices offer.
The answer to the problem is Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT). So much more than just another radio standard, NB-IoT provides extended battery life, extended range and the ability to install and maintain smart meters at a much lower cost. For utility companies that need every single smart meter they own to connect, regardless of where they are deployed, NB-IoT is the perfect solution.
Watch the video to see how NB-IoT is changing the game for Sweden’s utility companies and helping them to experience reduced costs, greater flexibility and enhanced operations.
