This article will give you a detailed introduction to this brand-new technology, NB-IoT, from the value of its significance, characteristics and advantages, the industry chain it drives, the path of the company's development, and future investment opportunities.


In September 2015, the global communications industry reached consensus on a low-power, wide area coverage (LPWA) IoT standard. The NB-IoT standard came into being. This year, as NB-IoT is about to complete its testing and officially entered the commercial phase, the industry’s attention and discussion about it is gradually heating up.


NB-IoT, what do you think is the Niubility the Internet of Thing? No, NB-IoT refers to Narrow Band - Internet of Things technology.


On June 16, 2016, the NB-IoT technology agreement was approved by the 3GPP Radio Access Network (RAN) Technical Specification Group meeting. It took less than eight months from project approval to agreement freeze to become one of the fastest established 3GPP standards in history. After the completion of performance standards in September and the completion of compliance tests in December, NB-IoT can enter the commercial phase.


First, why does NB-IoT appear?

According to Gartner, a market research institution, 6.4 billion IoT devices will be used worldwide in 2016, and 5.5 million devices will be connected every day. One of the foundations of the “Internet of Everything” is the transmission of data and different types of the Internet of Things. Businesses have different requirements for data transmission capabilities and real-time performance.


According to different transmission rates, the Internet of Things service can be differentiated by high, medium, and low speeds:


High-rate services: Mainly use 3G and 4G technologies, such as vehicle-mounted IoT devices and surveillance cameras. The corresponding service features require real-time data transmission.


Medium-rate services: The GPRS technology is mainly used, such as the storage cabinets of residential communities or supermarkets. The use frequency is high but not real-time. The requirements for network transmission speed are far lower than those for high-rate services.
