The plan of both NB-IoT LTE CAT-M1 is a less complex version of the well known and widely used 4G standard. Compared with 4G, LTE CAT-M1 attributes lower power pulls on batteries and more economical modem costs compared to 4G, as a result of its design simplification. It supports downlink and uplink speeds around 1 liter using a latency of 50 to 100 ms and consequently may be used quite elastic and also for realtime-communication.

What’s Narrowband-IoT?

Narrowband IoT is part of the approaching 5G standard and has been brought forward from the sector due to its specific benefits. It comprises 10 decades of battery life, building penetration, and also for below five US-Dollars GSM modules could be created. NB-IoT allows use instances potential that couldn’t be addressed until today. But, those benefits come at a cost, with a latency of 1.5 to 10 minutes a maximum of 62.5 kbps it does not allow real-time or voice-communication and therefore are best fitted for detectors

Narrowband-IoT vs. LTE CAT-M1

Both NB-IoT LTE CAT-M1 radio technology criteria are defined as LPWANs (Low Power Wide Area Network) and therefore are of great significance about Machine to Machine Communication with various benefits and disadvantages. If it comes down to that standard should be used to get a use situation, keep these standards in mind.
