Tuesday 23 February 2016 | 16:26 CET | Author: Bart Garvelink | Background
2016 will be the year of NB-IoT, according to network vendors. Existing LTE networks are being made ready for Narrow-Band IoT: a new wave of machine-to-machine applications with very low bandwidth. While relatively simple to implement in the network, the success will depend on the price of the IoT modems. The aim is to get to a price per unit of around USD 5, but this is still a ways off.
