Internet speed needs

Bell is the first Canadian carrier to deploy an IoT solution on the LTE-M network.

LTE-M, otherwise known as “Long Term Evolution, Category M1”, is a low-power IoT network that offers a unique combination of enhanced coverage and longer battery life with carrier-grade security, on a new generation of devices and for select applications.

As the first carrier to deploy an IoT solution on the LTE-M network in Canada, our network uses a Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technology standard that leverages our existing world-class LTE network footprint. LTE-M from Bell improves the performance of your IoT deployments by providing better in-building and underground coverage, all the while consuming less power and running on a longer battery life for select applications.

Our LTE-M network is ideal for mobility use cases, unlike over-the-top (OTT) networks operating in the unlicensed spectrum that only offer localized coverage and are not protected from signal interference from other OTT networks and devices.

Why LTE-M for IoT solutions:

LTE-M
Enhanced network coverage
LTE-M delivers a strong in-building and underground signal over a long range, so you can monitor your assets, even in those hard-to-reach places, and gain better visibility into your business operations in real time.
Extended battery life
IoT solutions running on LTE-M require less power than those on LTE, allowing your IoT devices to operate up to 10 years on a single charge.*
Optimized hardware cost
LTE-M enables your IoT solutions to run on devices that require limited data transmission capabilities.
We have certified modules for the LTE-M network to help your business simplify your IoT device designs and accelerate your IoT deployments.
*Battery life varies by use case.

LTE-M pilot: Henry of Pelham Family Estate Winery

Bell partnered with BeWhere and Huawei to pilot an IoT solution with LTE-M for Henry of Pelham Family Estate Winery to improve their planning and sustainability programs.
Through LTE-M, IoT sensors collect data on conditions of the atmosphere (such as temperature and humidity) to prevent vine disease and ultimately improve plant health, lower operating costs and provide years of maintenance-free operation.
