Narrowband IoT (NB‑IoT), also known as LTE Cat NB1, is a standards-based Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technology that works virtually anywhere. It simply and efficiently connects devices on already established mobile networks, and securely and reliably handles small amounts of fairly infrequent two‑way data. It provides very low power consumption, excellent extended range in buildings, easy deployment into existing cellular network architecture, network security & reliability and lower component cost.
NB-IoT Shield is an expansion board for Arduino to add NB-IoT, LTE Cat.M1 & EGPRS technology.
This shield uses Quectel BG96. This module is certified by most European mobile operators, like Deutsche Telekom.
NB-IoT and LTE-M are very new services. Ask your mobile operator about availability of SIM cards, coverage, frequencies used and login procedures before you buy the shield. See for example Deutsche Telekom IoT.
An antenna is included.
