CAT-M NB-IoT SIM card airtime subscription is ideal for the communication of devices that must be operated without an external power supply. Supporting the two main types of cellular IoT connectivity Narrowband IoT, or NB-IoT for short, and Long Term Evolution for Machines, also called LTE-M or CAT-M.

The main difference between CAT-M and NB-IoT is the frequency bandwidth. As the name NarrowBand suggests, the frequency bandwidth for NB-IoT is considerably lower than for CAT-M (LTE-M). The data throughput rate is also higher with CAT-M, with up to 1 Mbit/s. For NB-IoT, the data rate is much lower, at up to 128 Kbit/s.

In terms of building penetration, NB-IoT performs better than CAT-M and is therefore predestined for stationary applications, especially in buildings and basements. CAT-M scores particularly well in mobile IoT applications (Asset Tracking, Health Care, Live Tracking, Security Alarms and Wearables),  because the technology supports what is known as “handover,” seamless radio cell switching without interruption.

M2M Data Connect is a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) that provides secure, reliable cellular connectivity.  This plan includes CAT-M and NB-IoT Vodafone Network, SIM Card cost, APN, IoT Platform and support. CAT-M NB-IoT SIM cards are cost-effective and energy-efficient.  They are designed to send small packets of data, which is ideal for battery-driven sensors.
