What distinguishes NB-IoT from regular LTE?


  • Deutsche Telekom IoT

    NB-IoT is based on the LTE technology, but some features of LTE have been stripped out to optimize costs and battery lifetime, e.g. Voice, SMS and handover support. Moreover, data transmission was simplified to run via the control plane and only single-stream (half-duplex). User equipment only requires a single antenna.
