NB-IoT: The Future Industrial Advancement Solution

NarrowBand Internet of Things (NB-IoT) is an advanced technology that allows the companies to use batteries on their devices that can have up to 10 years. NB-IoT is the right choice to be implemented, considering its low data rates, small bandwidth, and its lot of sensors. 

NB-IoT has used a licensed frequency which can guarantee that there will be no interruption during the data transfer process. Compared to the other cellular connectivity, the wider reach of NB-IoT which can penetrate through buildings and basements makes this technology suitable for sensors in industry, agriculture, and smart cities with lower operational and maintenance costs. 

In Asia, countries such as China, Singapore, and Thailand have implemented massive use of NB-IoT. Specifically in China, it has built more than 100 million NB-IoT connections and leveraged this technology for intelligent fire suppression systems, city facility management, and smart homes. One company in China even has more than 30 million consumers using smart NB-IoT gas and water services, making it the world's largest provider of gas and water metering services.

In Singapore, the NB-IoT is implemented to drive their digital economy progress. This project will be a turning point for Smart Nation and digital transformation that enables businesses and consumers to detect energy consumption, such as flood monitoring, fleet management and waste management. According to Analysys Mason, Singapore's total IoT revenue is projected to be $714 million by 2025. Connectivity and services will reach $95 million and app usage will reach $349 million.

In Indonesia, the NB-IoT has been used for PLN's Smart Metering System. The utilization of this smart metering allows companies to control costs, monitor energy consumption, and prevent damage and leakage. Also, their accurate and real-time data reports will also help companies save data recording costs. It's not just a matter of work effectiveness, but in terms of cost efficiency and resilience, NB-IoT technology can make the battery use on the device last up to 10 years. 

 

Of course, the wider use and implementation of NB-IoT is Telkomsel IoT's commitment to supporting the industrial 4.0 development. In terms of transformation that urgently needs at this time, Telkomsel IoT also supports the business and industry in Indonesia to transform today, adapt, and strive for sustainable innovation in the future ahead.
