Deustche Telekom said it has cooperated with real estate service provider Ista to test its NB-IoT services in buildings. Telekom was able to establish in 99.75 percent of the cases a stable connection to transmit energy data through its network, according to a company press release.
Ista has provided access to over 500 metering points in around 60 apartments in the areas of Cologne and Bonn while also making available its own NB-IoT devices for the tests. The measurements were performed by consultancy firm P3 communications. Deutsche Telekom and Ista partnered to investigate the use of NB-IoT for the end-to-end communication of battery-powered devices in buildings.
