What is NB-IOT?
Narrowband Internet of things is a low-power wide-area network radio technology standard developed by 3GPP for cellular devices and services.
The specification was frozen in 3GPP Release 13, in June 2016. Other 3GPP IoT technologies include eMTC and EC-GSM-IoT.
NB-IoT significantly improves the power consumption of user devices, system capacity and spectrum efficiency, especially in deep coverage. ONE.
5G is the fifth generation of cellular network technology, offering higher speed, lower latency, and more efficient IoT connectivity compared to its predecessors.
How Does 5G Work?
5G operates across a broad spectrum of frequencies, using new radio technologies and advanced antenna techniques to deliver high-speed, low-latency connections.
Range and Speed
5G's speed can reach up to 10 Gbps in optimal conditions. The range depends on the specific frequency band used, with higher frequencies providing faster speeds but shorter ranges.
