Where is NB IoT at in 2018?

NarrowBand IoT(NB IoT) is a new technology standard developed to enable efficient communication and long battery life for mass distributed devices across wide geographical footprints and deep within urban infrastructure. The NB-IoT is currently supported by over twenty of the world’s largest mobile operators, cumulatively worth over $578 billion, who provide communications to over 2.9 billion customers and geographically serve over 90% of the IoT markets in 79 countries. Our company uses NB IoT in access control. We have been working tirelessly with Huawei and Vodafone over the last year, to configure the NB IoT network for use in access control. The NB IoT was not originally designed for th

Smart home promises have dominated the Consumer Electronics Show(CES) in Las Vegas again this year. Leading technology companies including Samsung, LG, and Panasonic revealed plans to add artificial intelligence to a host of unexpected devices from washing machines to air purifiers, cars to cooktops, to let them anticipate your needs. So, why is it that builders are still not including smart home infrastructure as a standard inclusion in new home builds?

NB IoT in access control - a brief history

NB IoT was originally designed with smart metering (water, gas electricity, parking), smart lighting and asset tracking as the main applications. For example it's rumored that a large Chinese utility company had placed orders for tens of millions NB IoT electricity units early on in NB IoT’s development. In 2017, many new products and applications were built and tested in NB IoT labs and with telco’s support. Some of these products are currently in pilot projects in Spain, Germany, China and other countries. Two examples of new ‘creative’ products built with NB IoT that have received a lot of publicity recently are the ‘connected cow’ and the ‘connected bee hive’. Other examples of new devic
