The LTE-M network from KPN has been specially developed for Internet of Things applications and is based on the reliable and secure 4G network supplied by KPN. LTE-M coverage is stronger than the 2G networks provided by KPN. LTE-M can quickly send data in an energy-efficient way, which means that the option to use wireless Internet of Things applications at any location is within reach.
LTE-M is suitable for a range of applications that currently operate with GPRS or 2G. Moreover, it is also suitable for applications that have not yet been upgraded to ‘smart’ applications. Examples of application options for LTE-M include smart meters, noise meters, soft drink vending machines and track & trace solutions. LTE-M may also be used in future in smart and sustainable energy networks and portable devices.
Power Save Mode (PSM)
The Power Save Mode restricts the battery usage of your smart devices. Thanks to Power Save Mode, the device transmits to the network that it is entering power save mode for an unlimited time. Once the smart device reawakens and starts transmitting, it still searches for previously sent incoming messages. In this way, the hardware can be in stand-by mode for a lomg period of time, thus saving a lot of energy.
Enhanced coverage and voice calls
With enhanced coverage, it will soon be possible to provide connectivity to areas that are usually difficult to reach, such as the cellar or control cabinet. In future it will also be possible to use voice calls via VoLTE (Voice over LTE). Thanks to Voice over LTE, you can also set up a speech connection with simple IoT devices.
With our complete package for nationwide IoT networks, KPN provides the right connectivity for any solution.
This platform offers you the necessary tools to manage a large amount of subscriptions and the associated costs.
