NB-IoT’s Role and Capabilities in Transforming Industries in Indonesia

There is a communication technology surge going on, made possible by wireless connections such as WLAN or LTE. As time goes by, cars, machines, even household appliances are becoming more interconnected. But what about the connected devices in many industry sectors in Indonesia where big, reliable connections often needed? 

For many applications in the Internet of Things, sometimes traditional mobile technology for business isn’t efficient enough. Thankfully, this is where Nb-IoT comes in to give businesses a number of benefits like power efficiency, cost savings, reliability, wider deployment and even global reach. Let’s see how Narrowband-IoT (Nb-IoT) filled the gaps and make way for mass applications in Indonesia’s IoT-supported industries.

Fishery - Jala

Using the Nb-IoT network and water quality sensor from Telkomsel IoT, JALA can now produce the first management data that is beneficial for the farmer. This comprehensive online management system also makes data-based shrimp cultivation a more advanced way to harvest better. From the gathered data, the fishery startup is able to know the condition of pond water quickly and precisely, achieving better crops, save the cost of feed up to 11% to increase crop yields up to 25%.

Agriculture - Habibi Garden

Habibi Garden is a precision farming device that allows users to communicate with their crops. Utilizing Nb-IoT’s real-time sensors, they can monitor plant conditions anywhere and monitor light intensity, humidity, and nutritional plants. The installed devices also collect information and process them so they can send useful information to the farmer, help them increase productivity, reduce costs, and reduce the likelihood of crop failures.

Transportation - Banopolis

Banopolis is an innovator specialized in planning, designing, and implementation in non-motorized transportation technology. On its application-supported bike-sharing services, Banopolis implements mobile app, sensor-equipped bikes, SmartLock, and RFID Parking Pole. These four major components are supported by Telkomsel Nb-IoT, enables each smart bike to communicate efficiently with the server.

Nb-IoT is massive and greatly improves business performance in many industry sectors. Using Nb-IoT, it will be easier than ever for customers, companies, and industrial firms to use the power of IoT connectivity to their advantage and change our world for the better.
