Verizon Launches Near-Nationwide NB-IoT Network | Light Reading
Narrow-band Internet of Things (NB-IoT) shares bandwidth with LTE to enable machine-to-machine communications, for devices such as alarm panels, factory equipment, parking meters, and more. The low-battery power technology is designed to use 100 Kbit/s, or less.
Unveiled at this week’s IoT World show in Santa Clara, the Verizon plan costs $1 a month for downloads of 50KBs. The data bucket can be shared amongst devices, Verizon says.
