From 35 billion devices today, the number of networked devices will grow to more than 75 billion by 2025.*
NB-IoT works with very small amounts of data using low amounts of energy. Battery runtimes of more than 10 years are possible.
With pre-installed SIM cards, Narrowband IoT enables intuitive plug-and-play applications.
Low costs per networked device coupled with reduced complexity provide high scalability, even internationally.
High building penetration makes NB-IoT the ideal transmission standard for use cases inside buildings.
Unlike other LPWA networks, NB-IoT has all the security and privacy features of cellular networks, including strong transmission quality.
Stiegelmeyer, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of hospital and care beds, has also recognized the potential that lies in the networking of its products. In collaboration with grandcentrix and Device Insight, it has developed a digital out-of-bed system based on Narrowband IoT. This relieves the nursing staff and significantly improves safety and comfort for residents and patients.
When a patient at risk of falling gets out of bed, the NB-IoT solution notifies caregivers via push message to smartphone and dashboard – customized by time of day, health status and patient mobility. In addition, the solution offers transparent condition monitoring of all bed status data, simplified weight recording and intuitive handling.
