NB-IoT Smart Meter Solutions

Enabling Remote Monitoring and Control for Energy Infrastructure and Utilities

SRP-E2i130

NB-IoT Smart Meter Solutions

NB-IoT is a wireless communications protocol designed by 3GPP. It accommodates massive deployment by leveraging 4G LTE networks provided by regional telecom operators. NB-IoT’s wireless module solutions, together with the telecom SIM card, Arm Pelion device management platform, and WISEPaaS application server, easily enable a range of smart city applications such as smart street light control, smart meters, and smart parking. Furthermore, 3GPP specifically designed the NB-IoT protocol with a low power consumption mode to fit specific smart city application scenarios.

Advantech's NB-IoT solution ready platform is designed specifically for smart meter systems through a data communication interface allowing for seamless communication with the NB-IoT wireless module. A telecom SIM card is inserted into the module, allowing for the easy transmission and reception of data to/from Arm Pelion and the WISE-PaaS Smart Meter Service. Device-to-cloud solution ready platforms provide remote wireless monitoring and control for hundreds of millions of smart meter devices.
