Whitepaper: LTE-M and NB-IoT: Using 5G Technologies to Reduce IoT Connectivity Costs

Posted: 10 December 2018 | | No comments yet

Cost always has been a concern for IoT applications at scale. Operating expenses have to be low enough to support the massive growth expected in the coming decades.

The cost of cellular deployment, initially developed for high speed, high data volumes, is considered too expensive for widespread IoT use due to excessive power consumption and complex protocols that lower battery life. It has taken some time for these technologies to be simplified or stripped down for widespread, low-power IoT usage. A static solar sensor doesn’t need the same capabilities as a mobile smart iPhone.
