Development Guide: NB-IoT for Industrial Applications
The GSMA Internet of Things (IoT) programme helps mobile operators add value and accelerate the delivery of new connected devices and services in the IoT. The programme supports industry collaboration, appropriate regulation and the optimisation of networks, as well as developing key enablers to support the growth of the IoT in the longer term. The vision is to enable the IoT to deliver a world in which consumers and businesses enjoy rich new services, connected by an intelligent and secure mobile network.
This document, covering the features standardised in 3GPP Release 13 and focusing on the key features that will be deployed over the next 12 months, provides guidelines to agricultural device manufacturers on the set up and configuration of key NB-IoT features for Smart Industrial Factory Monitoring, Industrial Goods Trackers and other connected equipment. The features specified in 3GPP Release 14, published in the summer of 2017, are not included in this document.Back
