In 2020, almost half of the globally LPWAN connected devices consisted of NB-IoT connections. Its wireless communication enables connecting trackers that need small amounts of data, low bandwidth, and a long battery lifetime.
Combined with the fact that the network roll-out is backed by large telecom players, it is an excellent option for industrial IoT applications.
Today, live asset location updates for traveling assets are a must at times. For example, when a high-value container crosses a border.
An NB-IoT tracker can send information to the cloud within (milli)seconds. Furthermore, it can check anytime if messages are transmitted, providing regular asset location updates.
Update NB-IoT firmware from behind your desk or at your home office. Product features improve over time. And so does firmware, a set of instructions programmed on a tracker.
With NB-IoT, you update firmware remotely. Leave complex logistics operations gathering trackers to update firmware behind you.
