Globe Telecom is enabling its network to support emerging Internet of Things (IoT) services, making full use of all the 700-megahertz spectrum and other existing LTE spectrum assets the company is currently assigned with. Globe is now piloting Narrow Band- Internet of Things (NB-IoT) technology due to its inherent advantage of long reach and range, while enhancing mobile data services.
NB-IoT is one of the three 3GPP standards-based low power wide area (LPWA) technology developed to enable a wide range of new IoT devices and services. NB-IoT as a standard is more developed compared to other defined 3GPP standards and the device ecosystem is evolving at a much faster pace.
Out of the 3 standards endorsed by 3GPP, Globe has enabled NB-IoT as this technology will have far reaching benefits for many people, industries, even communities and early adopters would be able to enjoy its benefits. Huawei and Nokia, Globe existing technology partners, are collaborating in this journey, ensuring network readiness to support new services.
