T-Mobile now has a plan for narrowband IoT (NB-IoT). The company says it has also certified new NB-IoT modules from u-blox and Sierra Wireless for use on its network.
Built on the 3GPP standard, NB-IoT is an LTE-Advanced technology, says the company, and offers capabilities to connect massive numbers of devices with small and steady streams of data at low cost.
“The number of connected devices already outnumbers the worldwide population, and it’s only getting bigger. So, of course, T-Mobile is taking advantage of the latest IoT tech to make it simpler – and massively more affordable – for businesses and cities to connect things,” said Mike Sievert, Chief Operating Officer for T-Mobile.
The NB-IoT plan is available for $6 per year up to 12 MB per connected device for a limited time, says T-Mobile.
