the Internet, and is widely present in our everyday lives. Vehicle or pet trackers and smart home set-ups are just a few examples of how IoT is present in our life.
Such technologies are transforming the way we live and work. The beauty however is that technology keeps on developing and improving, and it has!
GO has now launched new and improved IoT solutions, thanks to its new NB-IOT nationwide network, which allows businesses to not only improve their operational efficiency, but become greener too, because NB-IoT requires less energy to operate.
Low energy consumption also means that device battery life is significantly extended. However, this is not the only benefit. NB-IoT Technology can support hundreds of devices simultaneously. By design, it significantly extends coverage both indoors and outdoors. It is especially ideal to improve the signal in old buildings, basements, and industrial properties, therefore improving overall performance – perfect for the typical Maltese architecture. Furthermore, NB-IoT is a secured cellular network, which is particularly important when you have multiple devices being deployed within the business in various applications.
This new technology allows GO to continue assisting enterprise clients in their digitalisation journey, enabling them to launch different IoT solutions in various areas such as energy, smart city, marine, and agriculture. With the addition of NB-IoT to all its mobile networks, including its recently launched 5G network, GO is today offering the widest portfolio of cellular technologies for IoT applications addressing the requirements of different use cases.
For the business, GO stresses that it is a seamless and wireless solution that creates many other opportunities.
NB-IoT connectivity is ideal for stationary applications such as smart metering, smart parking, street lighting and waste collection, where extended battery life and network signal are critical.
Commenting on the launch of the network Arthur Azzopardi Chief Officer - GO Business said that “True to our purpose of driving a digital Malta, we invested even further in our IoT platform to bring NB-IoT to our business customers. In doing so, we are offering a full portfolio of connectivity services and creating opportunities for further efficiency across multiple channels.”
