Vodafone activates NB-IoT network in Frankfurt

Tuesday 17 April 2018 | 13:49 CET | News

Vodafone Germany has activated its Narrowband machine-to-machine (M2M) network in Frankfurt as part of its wider initiative to build up the Internet of Things (IoT) in cities across Germany. The city of Frankfurt, as well as companies, residents and visitors, can now benefit from Smart City applications like intelligent street lights, electricity meters and trash containers, said Vodafone. Vodafone said its M2M network is now active in 99 percent of the city area of Frankfurt and is ideal for transmitting smaller amounts of data for free and on a regular basis, using up to ten times less energy than previously.

Vodafone’s M2M network should be activated across all of Germany by September, enabling up to 4 billion networked devices to communicate with each other.
