Telco M1 launches commercial network dedicated to M2M communication

Telco M1 launched South-east Asia’s first commercial wireless network dedicated to machine-to-machine communication (M2M) today.

The nationwide network, known as a narrow-band Internet of Things (NB-IoT) network, is similar to the 4G mobile networks most Singaporeans are familiar with.

One of the first users of M1’s network will be electricity retailer Keppel Electric, which intends to deploy smart Web-connected power meters to customers. Its new power and water meters will be faster to deploy as they will not require power cables to be set up first, unlike existing meters.It will also let residents have information about their own power usage.These meters will also be able to send information through this network in real-time, which can lead to extra features such as being able to isolate malfunctioning household appliances.
