On November 6th, 2019 at 10 AM CT // 3PM GMT: Join us as to learn more about cellular IoT Prototyping with we host a webinar with Bjørn Kvaale, Applications Engineer, Nordic Semiconductor:
In response to IoT-specific LPWANs such as Sigfox and Cycleo (Semtec) 3GPP started standardizing and popularizing LTE-Cat M1 and NB-IoT (Narrowband IoT) as cellular LPWANs that operate mostly within licensed bands. Cellular IoT is becoming increasingly popular for IoT systems that for almost a decade would’ve been designed as non-cellular LPWANs.
With 5G poised to shake up the entire LPWAN landscape with its promise of low-latency, low-power, and high data transfer rates, 3GPP is considering allowing 5G technologies to operate unlicensed band (specifically, 3.5 GHz, 5 GHz, and 60 GHz) to further encroach upon non-cellular LPWANs. However, much still remains to be seen. LoRaWAN emerged half a decade ahead of 5G ecosystem and has the greatest variety and quantity of sensors and end to end solutions available today, with deployments in more than 140 countries worldwide.
