Which LPWA technology?

LPWATo support the expected communication needs of the Internet of Things, IoT, with more than three billion connections by the end of 2020 as predicted by Strategy Analytics, several low power wide area, LPWA, radio technologies are been developed and pushed to the market by the communications industry. The use cases or applications that the IoT will make possible are being widely discussed: wearables, asset tracking, metering, etc. But, is there any advantage or added value for the traditional networking or enterprise communications market?


Emerging Low Power Technologies

Low Power Wide Area NetworksTo support the further growth and development of the Internet of Things (IoT) the mobile industry is developing and standardising a new class of GSM technologies focused on IoT, which is called Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) networks. These technologies enable the new IoT services to expand and be more competitive and hence that is why it has the following advantages.
