Smart Choice for the Smart Grid: Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT)
Yuke Li(李玉珂); X. Cheng; Y. Cao; D. Wang; L. Yang
The low power wide area network (LPWAN) technologies,
which is now embracing a booming era with the
development in the Internet of things (IoT), may offer a brand
new solution for current smart grid communications due to their
excellent features of low power, long range, and high capacity.
The mission-critical smart grid communications require secure
and reliable connections between the utilities and the devices
with high quality of service (QoS). This is difficult to achieve
for unlicensed LPWAN technologies due to the crowded licensefree
band. Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT), as a licensed LPWAN
technology, is developed based on the existing LTE specifications
and facilities. Thus, it is able to provide cellular-level QoS, and
henceforth can be viewed as a promising candidate for smart grid
communications. In this paper, we introduce NB-IoT to the smart
grid and compare it with the existing representative communication
technologies in the context of smart grid communications
in terms of data rate, latency, and range, etc. The overall
requirements of communications in the smart grid from both
quantitative and qualitative perspectives are comprehensively
investigated and each of them is carefully examined for NBIoT.
We further explore the representative applications in the
smart grid and analyze the corresponding feasibility of NB-IoT.
Moreover, the performance of NB-IoT in typical scenarios of
the smart grid communication environments, such as urban and
rural areas, is carefully evaluated via Monte Carlo simulations.
