In late 2016 whilst we were attending an IoT accelerator in Venice, Italy, we received an email from Vodafone asking us if we were interested in exploring their new NarrowBand Internet of Things (NB IoT) technology to see if we could use it in our Smartlock Software Development Kit (SDK). Vodafone had seen our SDK mentioned in a European Commission (EC) newsletter (we had just received a EC R&D Grant).
Narrowband IoT or NB-IoT is a wireless communication technology, classified as a 5G standard technology, and exists on telecommunication companies mobile networks. NB-IoT is designed specifically for the Internet of Things (IoT).
