It is now possible to officially use LTE-M via KPN in 9 countries other than the Netherlands. The ‘LTE M’ network has been specially developed for Internet of Things applications and is based on the reliable and secure 4G networks of the providers. The coverage of LTE M is stronger than a 2G network and has the advantage of a deeper penetration rate, which means that the coverage in mainly buildings is many times better. LTE M allows fast data transmission in an energy-efficient way and it is suitable for various applications that now work with 2G.
Currently, according to the GSMA, there are 46 carriers worldwide that have made an LTE-M network publicly available. KPN has recently concluded a roaming agreement with 20% of these networks, which gives you the opportunity to use them. KPN is unique in this regard and a leader in the availability of LTE-M outside its own network, including the use of the additional possibilities of LTE-M (such as energy savings).
LTE M is available in the following countries with the corresponding carriers:
- Australia – Telstra
- Belgium – Orange
- France – Orange
- Germany – T-Mobile
- Latvia – LMT
- Norway – Telenor
- Switzerland – Swisscom
- Taiwan – Changhwa Telecom
- United States – AT&T
Practical examples of customers who implement LTE M simcards from Thingsdata: remote reading of temperature, humidity, light intensity and CO2 values by means of innovative sensors in greenhouse complexes in the agricultural sector. Unlocking valuable data of the indoor climate with IOT sensors placed in offices and schools. Collect measurement data from inverters that are linked to solar systems (solar panels).
