Preliminary evaluation of NB-IOT technology and its capacity

  title={Preliminary evaluation of NB-IOT technology and its capacity},
  author={Luca Feltrin and Alberto Marri and Michele Paffetti and Roberto Verdone},
The Internet of Things (IoT) addresses a huge set of possible application domains, requiring both shortandlongrange communication technologies. For long distances, a nu mber of proprietary and standard solutions for Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) are already available. Among them, NB-IOT is a candidate technology supported by many operators. This paper provides an estimation of the uplink performance, through a mathematical approach, in terms of network throughput. Finally, the…

Long Range Low Power Wireless Communication Technologies for the IoT
A mathematical model of the network able to predict the maximum performance in a given scenario with a specific configuration of some design parameters is used to study how these parameters affect the overall performance and how the optimal configuration may be chosen according to arbitrary criteria.
Evaluation of Optimum NPRACH Performance in NB-IoT Systems
Simulation results have shown that appropriately choosing NPRACH periodicity values can efficiently achieve uplink channel optimization between its two signals NPRACH and NPUSCH with an acceptable number of collisions and a high number of delivered packets.
Radio Coverage and Device Capacity Dimensioning Methodologies for IoT LoRaWAN and NB-IoT Deployments in Urban Environments
This paper will provide a concise overview of key characteristics of IoT representative IoT access network standards that are considered for being deployed in unlicensed and licensed bands and will present a methodology for modeling the characteristics of both access network technologies in order to assess their coverage and capacity considering different parameters.
Performance Analysis of Random Access Channel Periodicity in the NB-IoT System
Simulation results show that Medium-length periodicities provide a promising performance that balances the two uplink physical channels and as the number of repetitions increases, longer periodicities showed better performance.


Performance Evaluation of NB-IoT Coverage
A detailed evaluation of the coverage performance of NBIoT is provided and it is shown that it achieves a coverage enhancement of up to 20 dB when compared with existing LTE technology.
A Primer on 3GPP Narrowband Internet of Things
How NB-IoT addresses key IoT requirements such as deployment flexibility, low device complexity, long battery lifetime, support of massive numbers of devices in a cell, and significant coverage extension beyond existing cellular technologies is described.
Dedicated networks for IoT : PHY / MAC state of the art and challenges
The PHY and MAC layers of the technologies that are already deployed, or likely to be deployed: UNB by SigFox, CSS by LoRa T M, Weighless, and RPMA by Ingenu are presented.
NB-IoT deployment study for low power wide area cellular IoT
A deployment study of Narrowband Internet of Things using existing LTE infrastructure, examining potential techniques to compensate for the high path-loss and high interference and analysis to indicate when partial deployment of NB-IoT is feasible.
Coverage and Capacity Analysis of LTE-M and NB-IoT in a Rural Area
Both LTE-M and NB- IoT provide extended support for the cellular Internet of Things, but with different trade- offs.
Overview of narrowband IoT in LTE Rel-13
