I have been writing before about LPWAN coverage from satellites but mostly for LoRaWAN and SigFox technologies. This was natural due to the fact that these two technologies are aiming more towards remote, rural and suburban areas where there is no coverage from 4G cell towers. NB-IoT bein more costly and more energy hungry technology with the flip side of more capacity and real bidirectional was mostly aimed at city-wide IoT applications.
I personally think that having satellite i.e. worldwide coverage is a big step forward to stimulate growth of IoT networks and applications.
Here is the article describing a successful connection being made between satellite and NB-IoT end-node.
This blog is focused on simplifying and promoting the complex but also very interesting world of IoT, 5G, networking and digitalization.
Blog’s aim is to give short, interesting and useful information and content to business people and everyone interested in IoT/5G business development, entrepreneurship and practical use cases.
The blog presents concepts and analyses, use cases, product comparisons, news roundups, interviews, educational videos, tutorials, reports and whitepapers.
If you need a machine and don’t buy it, then you will ultimately find that you have paid for it and don’t have it.
Time isn't a commodity, something you pass around like a cake. Time is the substance of life. When anyone asks you to give your time, they're really asking for a chunk of your life.
To attain knowledge, add things every day. To attain wisdom, subtract things every day.
