Great power efficiency

Devices can run on batteries for up to 5 years as they can remain in a deep sleep mode and woken up when required

Strong coverage

Signals extend 20% beyond normal mobile phone coverage, and it also extends underground and deep within buildings

Massive Scale

Billions of IoT devices from smart lights, to smart meters and smart locks can connect to the internet on global NB-IoT networks

Trusted partners to help you  connect with confidence

Today, about 6.5 billion ‘things’ are connected to the internet. Yet, we are still only connecting less than 1% of what could be potentially connected to the internet. This is because these items are either too remote, too inaccessible, or there are simply too many to make it economically viable to do so. NB-IoT partners are changing all that.
