LTE-M is the workhorse for Low-Power Wide-Area (LPWA) connectivity and a catalyst for large-scale IoT deployments. It allows smaller module sizes, lower costs, longer battery life and better in-building coverage than traditional IoT connectivity options, with carrier-grade security.
We’re off to a fast start.
At Mobile World Congress 2017, it was apparent LTE-M is not just happening in North America. It’s going global.
LTE-M is not just happening in North America. It’s going global.
Like AT&T, KDDI (Japan), KPN (Netherlands), NTT DOCOMO (Japan), Orange (29 countries), Telefónica (Europe), Telstra (Australia), and TELUS (Canada) are moving to deploy LTE-M across four continents to more than 30 countries.
They see the potential in this technology for businesses around the globe. With these deployments comes global scalability that will amplify the advantages even more.
Recently, GSMA released a statement predicting that LPWA networks, including LTE-M, will surpass 2G, 3G, and 4G connectivity. At that pace, GSMA projects that LPWA networks will become the leading IoT technology in five years with a total of 1.4 billion connections by 2022.
We’re pressing ahead. We look forward to collaborating with our global counterparts to bring the benefits of the IoT to businesses worldwide through LTE-M.
