Before IoT devices like smart meters can be installed, the coverage of the NB-IoT network and its performance at the location of the IoT device needs to be ensured.

NB|METER offer a simple, but powerful solution, that can be operated with standard AndroidTM  Smartphones. An end-to-end connectivity test can be performed by a fingertip. The results of the test is reported to a cloud for documentation and quality insurance.

NB|METER  Features:

  • Easy-to-use end-to-end test
  • Display of Network KPIs
  • Cloud storage of the test results
  • AT-Command debug console
  • Continuous testing
