The internet of things (IoT) has emerged as a trending technology that is continually being implemented into various practices within the field of engineering and science due to its versatility and various benefits. Despite the levels of innovation that IoT provides, researchers continue to search for networks that maintain levels of sustainability and require fewer resources. A network that measures up to these expectations is Narrowband IoT (NBIoT), which is a low power wide area version of IoT networks and is suitable for larger projects. Engineers and other industry professionals are in need of in-depth knowledge on this growing technology and its various applications.

Principles and Applications of Narrowband Internet of Things (NBIoT) is an essential reference source that provides an in-depth understanding on the recent advancements of NBIoT as well as the crucial roles of emerging low power IoT networks in various regions of the world. Featuring research on topics such as security monitoring, sustainability, and cloud infrastructure, this book is ideally designed for developers, engineers, practitioners, researchers, students, managers, and policymakers seeking coverage on the large-scale deployment and modern applications of NBIoT.
