(NB-IoT）是一種基於標準的低功耗廣域（LPWA）技術，旨在實現廣泛的新型物聯網設備和服務。 NB-IoT顯著提高了用戶設備的功耗、系統容量和頻譜效率，特別是在深度覆蓋範圍內。 電池壽命超過10年，可以支持廣泛的應用範圍。
此產品為QB08 NB-IoT Bee (900MHz) 模組，內含擴充板、Bee模組、天線。
新的物理層信號和頻道旨在滿足擴展覆蓋的要求 - 農村和室內深度 - 以及超低的設備複雜性。 預計NB-IoT模組的初始成本與GSM / GPRS相當。 然而，基礎技術比現在的GSM / GPRS要簡單得多。
Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software, it is an easy tool for fast prototyping, aimed at students without a background in electronics and programming. As soon as it reached a wider community, the Arduino board started changing to adapt to new needs and challenges, differentiating its offer from simple 8-bit boards to products for IoT applications, wearable, 3D printing, and embedded environments. All Arduino boards are completely open-source, empowering users to build them independently and eventually adapt them to their particular needs. The software, too, is open-source, and it is growing through the contributions of users worldwide.
NB-IoT Bee is the core module for NB-IoT Shield, With NB-IoT Shield and Arduino, user can study/evaluate and do POC for NB-IoT solution rapidly.
The NB-IoT Bee is loaded with offshore NB-IoT module. include:
Nb-IoT Bee QB05, QB08, QB20, they use Quectel BC95 module. The module is designed for only use in NB-IoT network. and difference suffix reference to different NB-IoT Band.
Nb-IoT Bee QG96, it uses Quectel BG96 module. This module supports mutli-bands. Except NB-IoT, It also support LTE Cat M1 & EGPRS.
