    Low Cost Narrow Band IoT

    Low Cost Narrow Band Internet of Things  As part of Release 13, 3GPP has specified a new radio interface, the Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT). NB-IoT is optimized for machine type traffic. It is kept as simple as possible in order to reduce device costs and to minimize battery consumption. In addition, it is also adapted to work in difficult radio conditions, which is a frequent operational area for certain machine type communication devices. Although NB-IoT is an independent radio interface, it is tightly connected with LTE, which also shows up in its integration in the current LTE specifications. In…
