GSMA

“NB-IoT” stands for “Narrow Band-Internet of Things”. It is a low power wide area radio technology standard published by 3GPP in Release 13 that addresses the requirements of the Internet of Things (IoT). The technology provides improved indoor and outdoor coverage, supports massive numbers of low throughput IoT devices, low delay sensitivity, ultra-low device cost, low device power consumption and optimised network architecture.

The NB-IoT ™ logo is designed for network operators and device, module & chipset manufacturers to market and promote NB-IoT technology and product. The NB-IoT    logo has been developed for the GSMA NB-IoT Forum to enable members and other technology users to demonstrate their support for a unified global technology and to clearly label products and services using NB-IoT . https://www.gsma.com/iot/narrow-band-internet-of-things-nb-iot/

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can use this logo?

Anyone using NB-IoT technology, as detailed in the 3GPP specification, http://www.3gpp.org/ftp/Information/WORK_PLAN/Description_Releases/ may use this logo designed to increase global recognition of NB-IoT. This logo may be used by companies promoting products and services which utilise NB-IoT technology.

Who owns this logo?

The NB-IoT ™ logo is owned by the GSM Association (“GSMA”), the global trade association for the mobile industry whose registered office is at GSMA Head Office, Floor 2, The Walbrook Building, 25 Walbrook, London, EC4N 8AF, UK.

What is the purpose of the logo?

The GSMA NB-IoT Forum agreed that multiple NB-IoT logos may confuse end users. It would be far better for the industry to support the notion of one NB-IoT ™ logo. Furthermore, one logo, supported by the GSMA, has the potential to become a universally recognised symbol which easily identifies NB-IoT enabled devices and services. The logo is designed to be suitable for promoting & marketing NB-IoT on an international basis.

Where might you expect to see the logo in use?

Network operators and device manufacturers will determine how and where the logo is deployed. Typical usage includes outer device packaging, in-box literature, online and offline marketing collaterals and events, online service and device communications, service and device advertising.

Can a network operator or a device, module, chipset manufacturer use the logo independently?

The NB-IoT ™ logo is intended to be used by either network operators or device, module, chipset manufacturers  For example:

  1. A device, module, chipset manufacturer can market a device using NB-IoT ™ logo provided that the device, module, chipset supports NB-IoT in 3GPP Release 13 and supports any of the NBx categories; i.e. Cat NB1, Cat NB2, etc.
  2. A network operator can market their network using NB-IoT ™ logo provided that the networks are supporting NB-IoT technology.

Is there a cost associated with using the logo?

No. A royalty free license is granted to users who complete the user registration process as outlined below. This allows the use of the NB-IoT ™ logo with all products and services that comply with the 3GPP NB-IoT specifications.

What does use of the NB-IoT ™ logo mean?

The permission to use the NB-IoT ™ logo does not involve or imply any certification by the GSMA or the GSMA members that the products or services of manufacturers or service providers actually comply with the 3GPP NB-IoT specifications. It is intended simply and only to provide a basis of reference for users, network operators and other manufacturers and service providers. The NB-IoT ™ logo may be used to show a general or specific compliance with the related specifications. The NB-IoT ™ logo shall not be used for products and services that are not in general or specific compliance with the 3GPP NB-IoT specifications.

Application for permission to use the NB-IoT ™ logo

Manufacturers and service providers wishing to declare conformity to the NB-IoT specifications are given permission to use the NB-IoT logo to mark their equipment and documentation. This arrangement is entirely voluntary and is one of self-declaration by the manufacturer, supplier, etc. Additionally, any use of the NB-IoT logo is subject to

  1. Acceptance of the Logo Guidelines [and Terms of Use]
  2. Registration of the manufacturer, supplier, etc.
