GSA Snapshot: 3GPP IoT Global Status

The third quarter of 2017 saw momentum continue to build behind cellular IoT networks based on NB-IoT/Cat-NB1 and LTE-M/Cat-M1: most activity involved NB-IoT/Cat-NB1. Activity worldwide is indicated in Figure 1. The latest numbers of commercially launched services and trials as of 6 January 2018 are:

  • 91 operators investing in NB-IoT in 52 countries, including
  • 39 commercial NB-IoT networks in 28 countries and a further 52 networks in 36 countries trialling, demonstrating or planning to deploy NB-IoT/Cat-NB1.
  • 34 operators investing in LTE Cat-M1 including
  • nine commercial LTE-M networks and 25 other networks in 16 countries trialling, demonstrating or planning to deploy LTE-M/Cat-M1.
