  title={Evaluating the suitability of Narrowband Internet-of-Things (NB-IoT) for smart grids},
  author={Varun Nair},
Narrowband Internet-of-Things (NB-IoT), recently introduced by 3GPP, is a relevant Radio Access Technology (RAT) solution for deployment within smart grids, the electricity grids of the future, due to the need to provide low-cost connectivity to a large number of smart meters installed in households. Outage Restoration and Management (ORM), a smart grid use case, involves the smart meter User Equipment (UE) sending a notification message to the utility upon the detection of a loss or…
