Teragence adds NB-IoT and LTE-M coverage data to its Signal Checker product
Teragence, the leading provider of mobile network mapping solutions, has announced that its flagship Signal Checker product now includes NB-IoT and LTE-M coverage data, enabling IoT service providers and operators to assess signal strength and coverage at a specific location.
With the IoT becoming more ubiquitous, service providers are expressing a growing demand for reliable coverage data on LPWAN networks such as NB-IoT and LTE-M. Operator coverage maps are not addressing this need. They lack the precision and granularity required to meet the operational needs of IoT network providers and service providers.
"Inadequate coverage has a significant cost for IoT service providers. It results in faulty installations, costly site re-visits and increasing support demand, and it can ruin the profitability of a deployment," said Christian Rouffaert, CEO of Teragence. "Teragence Signal Checker is the world's only mobile coverage map that gives a truepicture of NB-IoT and LTE-M network coverage, giving stakeholders access to accurate coverage information and enabling the planning and optimisation of their deployments."
"Our unique combination of crowdsourced device data and AI-augmented geospatial delivers this unique service, and addresses one of the industry's biggest pain points. What's more, our service is available on a simple pay-per-use basis, making it accessible to all the players in the ecosystem - from small, specialist sensor network operators to the large IoT MVNOs," he added.
Customers log into the Teragence Signal Checker platform, enter a location and define the relevant operator and technology standard (standard cellular protocols as well as NB-IoT or LTE-M), and Teragence Signal Checker returns the expected signal strength as well a fidelity score against its own assessment.
Teragence will be exhibiting on Stand 392 at the IoT Tech Expo Global event, which is taking place on 30 November - 1 December 2023 at Olympia, London.
Teragence is the global leader in mobile coverage mapping solutions. Combining crowdsourced data with AI-augmented geospatial analytics, Teragence provides geo-located, granular and quantitative mobile network insight products to all stakeholders in the mobile network ecosystem.
