Commercial Use of NB-IoT Rises

The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology recently announced China’s intent to speed up the commercial use of NarrowBand Internet of things (NB-IoT). NB-IoT, a narrowband radio technology designed for IoT, can allow a broad range of low-power devices and services to connect via cellular telecommunications bands on the Wide Area Network. Compared to similar services such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi technology, NB-IoT is cheaper, covers more, has a longer battery life and is believed to have great potential in application.
