NB-IoT vs LTE-M: Which is the best choice for your IoT application?

NB-IoT vs LTE-M

Time is running out as 2G and 3G networks gradually sunset across the world, forcing many legacy use cases to be transferred to new connectivity technology.

NB-IoT and LTE-M have entered the market as two new network technologies created for enabling global IoT connectivity and capable of supporting LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Networks) technology.

As they steadily become available across the world, LTE-M and NB-IoT are viable options for industries looking to future proof their IoT devices and offer better coverage, longer lasting batteries and lower device cost.

But which of the two is the better choice for your IoT application? How are they different and how will they affect the market?

At the core of every successful IoT application is a carefully considered connectivity strategy.
