NB-IoT Use Cases

NB-IoT is best suited for stationary applications with hourly data transfer frequency or a few times per hour and low to medium transmission rates. The most common NB-IoT use cases are:

  • Meters
  • Parking
  • Street lights
  • Smart home appliances
  • Environment management devices

CAT-M1 Use Cases

CAT-M1 is best suited for non-stationary applications with one every few minutes data transfer frequency and transmission rates in the high kbps to low mbps levels. The most common CAT-M1 use cases are:

  • Rental vehicles
  • Fleet management
  • Cold chain monitoring
  • Asset Tracking

Connect LPWA as a great alternative to global 2G/3G sunset.

As a result of the rapid transformation of the cellular IoT technology landscape, 2G/3G networks are being depopulated of IoT devices and eventually will be shut down completely. While IoT businesses should be concerned and fast-acting regarding the sunsetting of 2G/3G, the situation isn’t wholly without opportunities. Newer LPWAN connectivity technologies like CAT-M1 and NB-IoT are becoming the most affordable and suitable replacement for 2G/3G networks, making them more accessible to various IoT businesses. 

To be prepared, businesses can make critical progress while upgrading to these newer networks as earlier as possible. Follow our recent global 2G/3G sunset updates page to plan your alternative replacement.
