Key Insights

Is it plausible to employ remote SIM provisioning (RSP) over Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT)? This is the question on the lips of many IoT innovators looking to leverage the benefits of NB-IoT cellular connectivity. In this whitepaper, we consider the key factors affecting the inclusion of remote SIM provisioning capabilities on NB-IoT enabled devices.

  • Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) is one of the top emerging low power, wide area networking (LPWAN) cellular technologies that satisfy the growing demand for off-grid connectivity for very large deployments of low-complexity IoT devices.
  • NB-IoT offers great advantages to device makers and deployers, but has certain limitations which can be addressed with RSP.
  • NB-IoT roaming: work in progress.
  • Data messaging, protocols and availability.
