Many off-the-grid IoT solutions rely on low-bandwidth cellular protocols (e.g. NB-IoT and LTE-M) for communications. While there are numerous advantages to these protocols, as they consume less power and are more cost-effective, they are typically limited to infrequently relaying small packets of sensor data.
However, what if we took an outside-the-box view of cellular IoT and exposed what we actually could do with NB-IoT and LTE-M by…
- Remotely controlling machines
- Transferring large binary files
- Updating Machine Learning models remotely
- Performing cloud-based firmware updates
Normally we’d delegate these tasks to Wi-Fi, but this is where the Blues Wireless Notecard cellular system-on-module and its accompanying cloud service, Notehub.io, can help!
Join us as we will dive into all of these topics and see how we can efficiently and securely use narrowband cellular to its full extent.
