Tuesday 13 December 2016 | 10:59 CET | News
Dish Network announced that the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), the global wireless standards body, formally approved narrowband internet of things (NB-IoT) support for Band 70. 3GPP specifications will enable the development of NB-IoT devices and network infrastructure using Band 70, among other potential uses for the band. 3GPP's NB-IoT standards create a foundation for the development of wireless infrastructure and devices that support extended coverage for low-cost and densely deployed devices that can feature a battery life of up to 10 years.
