Programming Narrowband IoT Applications
Programming Narrowband IoT Applications

After looking into some of the details of NBIoT modules an LTE Cat NB as a technology itself, it’s now about time to get started with programming Narrowband Modules such as the BC68/BC95 from Quectel or uBlox’ SARA N410. Looking at the spec sheets of these modules can be a bit overwhelming, so what’s really necessary to connect an IoT device to a backend service? In this series we’re showing how to get started!

As long as we are dealing with NB-IoT, we considered of being more specific about real life examples using our Grove connector and narrowband protocol. Today we will be programming by using an MCU from Adafruit, NB-IoT module, OLED screen and some sensors in order to show the capabilities of our new hardware on a real life NB-IoT task. Please remind that, using these modules and sensors will give you a fresh start, then you can easily customise this setup with desired sensors, actuators or protocols.

For the past four months, we’ve been taking a deeper look into Narrowband as a mobile/M2M technology, some of the modules currently available and its applications in general. From the perspective of boards and modules, we’re really excited about Arduino’s offering of their new MKR 1500, a small but powerful board combining a 32bit Cortex M0+ MCU and an radio module for LTE Narrowband and LTE-Cat M.

In our last blogpost, we laid out the foundation of Narrowband IoT knowledge, what it's about and what kind of IoT projects it might be used for. NB-IoT is a new way of communication for the “things” which use the subsets of LTE standard, and which carry small volumes of data transmission over long periods. In the past few weeks we've been working intensively with chips from Quectel, and we're happy to share our insights!

An Introduction to Narrowband Iot
An Introduction to Narrowband Iot

Welcome to our new blogpost series about one of the recent LPWA technologies, Narrowband-IoT. This blog post gives an overview of NB-IoT technology and its specifications, as well as a discussion of the reasons for choosing NB-Iot instead of current protocols. This post, along with our other upcoming blog posts, will give you some additional knowledge about NB-IoT applications, hardware selection, shields and programming it for NB-IoT.
