What is NB-IoT
A narrowband radio technology for M2M, IoT devices and applications, which require wireless transmission over a more extended range at a relatively low cost and using little power for long battery lives, is known as NB-IoT.
For NB-IoT applications, a small data volume amounts need to be transmitted unusually, it became a standard for this type of wireless communications in 2016, and in recent time mobile operators are deploying network capabilities enabling narrowband-IoT coverage for their customers.
