NB-IoT is a new radio access technology targeting a
large set of use cases for massive machine-type communications
standardized by the 3GPP. Compared to human-oriented technologies,
NB-IoT has been enhanced in terms of coverage and
power saving capabilities while reducing the complexity at the
same time. These features allow connectivity of devices in challenging
positions, enabling long battery life. This paper provides
an overview of NB-IoT, together with a mathematical model of
the network able to predict the maximum performance in a given
scenario with a specific configuration of some design parameters.
Finally, we present an analysis on how these parameters affect
the overall performance and how the optima
