T-Mobile will compete with KPN’s network for Internet-of-things




T-Mobile, KPN will compete by vehicles on its own network for the Internet-of-things. The origin of German provider chooses na-iot, a network that 3GPP, known from the 3G and 4G standards, adopted as standard.

T-Mobile has partnered with the administrator of its network, Huawei, Wednesday nb-iot demonstrated . Nb-iot need for the downlink and uplink 0,18MHz, so it fits easily into an existing frequency band for 4g, 3g or 2g. T-Mobile wants nb-iot activate 12,000 of his mast in the Netherlands in the 900MHz band, which now provides inter alia 4g.

With the use of NB-iot goes T-Mobile hopes to achieve to compete with KPN, which this month nationwide coverage with its Lora network. Lora is a network that is just meant as nb-iot for the Internet-of-things , such as sensors. In the Netherlands, in some places also range from free open source network of The Things Network.

Nb-iot is designated a standard 3GPP, the umbrella organization of providers that previously include mobile as 2G, 3G and UMTS and LTE as 4G. Nb-iot that processor maker Qualcomm developed, favored by some providers because it requires no new frequencies and thus works on existing poles with no hardware modifications.

Networking for the Internet-of-things have a low bandwidth, as sensors and other devices that are connected to it, the connection often rarely needed and then need to send enough data. The resulting batteries of such devices can be much longer than if they are connected to 4G, 3G, 2G or Wi-Fi.
