Kuwait telco Ooredoo has integrated NB-IoT technology into its network.

Ooredoo’s customers will have the capability to harness the potential of NB-IoT across a broad spectrum of applications, all with a battery life of up to ten years. NB-IoT promises cost-effective, energy-efficient and seamless connectivity for an extensive range of devices and applications.

With the introduction of NB-IoT, Ooredoo’s customers can expect more robust and dependable connectivity for their IoT devices. Whether it’s smart homes, wearable devices or asset tracking, Ooredoo ensures that IoT devices remain connected, even in difficult environments.

The company is prioritising the security and privacy of its customers’ data using NB-IoT’s security features.

The technology is designed to provide extensive reach and deep indoor coverage. It ensures that IoT devices can maintain connectivity even in difficult indoor environments, such as underground areas, dense urban buildings or remote industrial facilities. This capability is crucial for a wide range of applications, including smart homes, asset tracking and industrial automation, as it guarantees uninterrupted service and reliable data transmission, regardless of where the devices are located.

One of the significant advantages of NB-IoT is its low-power technology, enabling devices to operate on a single battery charge for years, ensuring uninterrupted service and low maintenance requirements. This technology reduces the energy consumption of IoT devices, contributing to a greener, more sustainable future.

By optimising network resources, NB-IoT reduces waste and promotes environmentally friendly operations. Furthermore, it facilitates real-time environmental monitoring, aiding in the early detection and mitigation of pollution and climate-related issues.

NB-IoT technology supports a multitude of IoT devices simultaneously, making it suitable for widespread deployment. Its inherent simplicity and efficiency offer ease of implementation across diverse sectors, ranging from healthcare and agriculture to smart cities and logistics.

Using NB-IoT technology establishes Kuwait as a hub for IoT innovation, attracting investments and fostering economic growth. It can be harnessed to enhance public services, including smart city infrastructure and healthcare systems, ultimately elevating the quality of life for citizens.

“As the leading digital enabler for businesses in Kuwait, Ooredoo is proud to pioneer the NB-IoT technology into our network,” said an Ooredoo (www.ooredoo.com.kw) spokesperson. “This achievement sets a remarkable standard for connectivity and innovation, and we’re excited to offer our valued customers the exceptional benefits of NB-IoT.
