Release announcement: Activation of NB-IoT network features
Dear IoT Community,
please note that we will soon be activating new features, as well as will update the configuration of already available features in the NB-IoT network. With the transition, you’ll be able to manage your NB-IoT devices even more flexibly and efficiently. The activation is currently planned for beginning of November and will affect our networks in Austria, Czech Republic, Germany and the Netherlands.
The changes at a glance:
• Switch to dynamic Power Saving Mode (PSM) - the network will now accept the values suggested by devices
• Switch to dynamic (long-periodic) Tracking Area Update (TAU/LP-TAU) - the network will now accept the values suggested by devices
• Introduction of Data Packet Buffering - the network will buffer up to 10 data packets for the sleeping devices in the PSM
More information can be found in the attached document: Feature Release Communication
If you already use PSM and / or TAU / LP-TAU, then please note that your devices may behave differently than usual after activating the network functions. We recommend checking the settings on your devices.
If you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask in our IoT Forum!
