Telenor has launched two nation wide nets: NB-IoT and LTE-M, both being optimized for Internet of things (IoT), which results in communication between devices and sensors via 4G-net. NB-IoT provides a very good coverage (>99% of the population) and is tailor made for solutions that shall only send small amounts of data and that require long battery lifetime. LTE-M can send larger data volumens that NB-IoT and is very well suited for sensors with additional video, voice or SMS function. Both technologies include also a very high degree of security and are being operated 24/7/365.
In the iFLINK project, Telenor will provide tailor made communication solutions to the municipalities in order to establish larger air quality sensor networks.
