How the IoT boom will impact the deployment of low power wide area network solutions
As the IoT grows, businesses look to low power wide area network solutions to aid their growth in a number of promising sectors
The concepts of machine to machine communication (M2M) and the Internet of Things (IoT) have permanently changed the value chain of every business today. With the impending shutdown of 2G networks, organizations have been on the lookout for networks that can serve the vast expanse of industrial connectivity, which has consequentially generated a wide scope for low power wide area network solutions (LPWANs). LPWANs such as SigFox, LoRaWAN and others have come to gain more popularity than existing connectivity options like Ethernet, cellular, satellite, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi due to their ability to address key limitations of the conventional networking technologies such as range, cost and battery life.
