1NCE Increases Bandwidth for Cellular IoT Device Communication

IoT network services operator 1NCE increases the maximum available data rates for cellular device IoT communication for new and existing customers from 128 kbit/s to up to 1 Mbit/s. All customers will benefit from the broader bandwidth immediately. This will be especially appreciated by customers working on IoT projects that require energy efficiency.

While data rates are not very important in IoT, broad availability, short latency, and long lifetime in the field can be crucial. Simple sensor data such as coordinates, temperature, humidity, filling level or velocity can be transmitted quickly even at low data rates. 1NCE, allows mobile device communication for IoT via all common cellular network technologies such as 2G, 3G, 4G, NB-IoT and LTE-M. So far, the speed of 1NCE’s network was limited to a maximum of 128 kbit/s across all technologies. The increase in bandwidth to a maximum of 1 Mbit/s benefits all 3G, 4G and especially LTE-M applications, which can fully utilize this bandwidth by specification.
Since it is now possible to transmit more data in less time, the energy consumption of the devices can be reduced. This is beneficial for preserving the runtime of battery-operated devices, which transmit their data at longer intervals that will now need significantly less time to do so. Over-the-Air Firmware updates also can be performed in a shorter amount of time.

By increasing the bandwidth, we are making the 1NCE IoT Flat Rate future-proof

, comments Alexander P. Sator, CEO of 1NCE GmbH

We are thus meeting the needs of our customers to enable the development of even complex IoT applications.

For a one-time fee of 10 euros, IoT devices can communicate with 1NCE for 10 years, and thus mostly throughout their entire life cycle. The tariff includes 500 MB data volume and 250 SMS. It is available in over 100 countries.
1NCE is not changing current tariff models. They have already activated the increased bandwidth for all 1NCE IoT Flat Rate customers. With the IoT Flat Rate, the Cologne-based company has set a global standard that is gaining more customers. As a technology partner of Deutsche Telekom and with its own cloud native IoT platform, 1NCE represents the link between cellular telecommunication networks and modern cloud applications.
“Simplicity is our number one priority,” adds Sator. “With our disruptive pricing, we enable our customers to easily calculate their business model across the lifecycle of their devices for the equivalent of just 2 cents per megabyte, including global connectivity.”
