T-Mobile starts NB-IoT services in Las Vegas

Monday 17 July 2017 | 12:26 CET | News
T-Mobile has claimed a first in the US with live field tests of NB-IoT on its commercial network. Conducted with Qualcomm and Ericsson, the tests took place across multiple sites on T-Mobile’s LTE network in Las Vegas and used 200 KHz of T-Mobile’s AWS spectrum. 

T-Mobile and the City of Las Vegas also announced a new partnership to deploy IoT technology throughout the city — including Narrowband IoT. They are piloting several IoT projects starting in the city’s Innovation District, an area just off the Las Vegas strip that is dedicated to developing emerging technologies. The IoT projects include flood and storm drainage sensors to provide early warning and fault detection for Las Vegas residents, smart LED lighting and environmental sensors atop city light poles to monitor temperature, humidity and environmental gases.
