Kamstrup announces investment in NB-IoT communication for its electricity meters

October 9, 2017 - Kamstrup has announced that it is investing heavily in narrowband internet of things (NB-IoT) communication for its electricity meters.

The Danish company says communication modules and meters with integrated NB-IoT have already been developed and successfully tested. Pilot tests are planned for spring 2018 and a commercial solution will be available in the next 12-18 months.

Several tests have been carried out on Kamstrup’s NB-IoT solution, one of which was on Vodafone’s live network in Ireland, where Kamstrup’s meters remotely connected back to the hosting centre in Denmark. Another was a multi-vendor lab test carried out in Vodafone’s open lab in Düsseldorf, Germany, on both Huawei and Ericsson radio network equipment.

The tests have confirmed the maturity of NB-IoT technology and proven the flexibility of the solution in terms of its ability to function with different networks.
