NB IoT /CAT-M1 in Germany


#1

Hi
I’m using a SIM7000E modem and try to connect to NBIoT networks in germany.
If I execute “AT+COPS=?” I can see one NB IoT network in range, however for some reason I can not connect to it. Is there a reason why this does not work ? I assumed hologram supports those two standards.

Hey @Thalhammer

Hologram is working hard to shed more light on the state of Cat-M1/NB-IoT networks in Germany and the rest of the world. As you are aware Cat-M1/NB-IoT is still relatively new and globally the roaming scenarios aren’t fully standardized yet, so we have very few confirmed Cat-M1/NB-IoT networks that we have access to and Germany is not one of those countries.

Having said that, there is a lot happening in the global Cat-M1/NB-IoT sphere which should give us more insight into how everything will shake out in a few months time.

Best,
Maiky
