NB-IoT developer kits

27 March 2019 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

At Mobile World Congress, Libelium presented the integration of NB-IoT connectivity into its wireless sensor platform. To this end, it teamed up with Ericsson to showcase different development IoT kits to enable proofs of concept.

In a market context that demands greater maturity and homogeneity in communication protocols, the integration of NB-IoT technology in Libelium’s sensor platform is part of the company’s new strategy to offer customised projects that require specific configurations. The kits allow developers to easily test this technology thanks to its open source API.

The NB-IoT connectivity, integrated in a module manufactured by Quectel, offers high reliability by including global coverage for all geographies and by its compatibility with three types of network: NB-IoT, LTE-Cat-M, and even current GPRS networks so fall-back is ensured in case NB-IoT coverage is not possible at some point.

Thus, for IoT projects deployed in rural areas where there is still low coverage of the NB-IoT network, this device will allow the use of alternative communication technologies in addition to the possibility of location through the GNSS module included.
