Vodafone demos NB-IoT with Nokia, Telit in Germany

Thursday 22 December 2016 | 14:01 CET | News
Vodafone Germany has partnered with Nokia and Telit to develop a Narrowband-IoT system, which was recently demonstrated at its Open Lab in Dusseldorf. The system uses an Intel chipset integrated into a NB-IoT module. In the trial, it was embedded into a Shitek ultrasonic gas meter to transmit data on gas flow over a 4G Vodafone test network. This technology enables radio signals to reach further inside buildings to connect sensors and encourages lower power consumption, with battery life prolonged for up to 15 years.
