What is Narrowband IoT?
NB-IoT is a new technology developed for IoT devices that send small amounts of data irregularly and require long periods of usage time. The technology offers several significant advantages such as improving the power consumption of devices and providing lower component cost using secure and reliable networks. Verkotan provides narrowband IoT Measurements to optimize the performance of your product.
NB-IoT is appropriate for e.g., smart metering (gas, water and electricity) and smart city infrastructure (street lamps and waste bins). It can be beneficial for facility management services and tracking of persons, animals or objects.

- Frequency range of 400MHz – 6GHz
- Large chamber with capability to measure all kinds of IoT devices
- Accurate measurements with R&S®CMW500
NB-IoT uses existing cellular network infrastructure to deliver excellent coverage and reliable connectivity. This approach is becoming adopted by major worldwide operators. The OTA test is critical for operators to qualify the interoperability and compliance of their NB-IoT devices. This is particularly important when a third-party enclosure is used with the device since the antenna coverage effects could be limited. The testing is especially required for US and Australian markets.
