Which one is right for your cellular IoT deployment?
There are three LTE-based standards of cellular communication specifically intended for use in the Internet of Things (IoT). There’s LTE CAT-1, which was introduced in 2009, and there’s LTE-M and NB-IoT, which were introduced in 2016 as part of the cellular Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) specification. CAT-1 and cellular LPWA both offer the benefits of 3GPP standardization and are viable long-term options for the IoT, but they vary in what we at Sierra Wireless refer to as the “4 C’s”: coverage (and bandwidth), current (power consumption), cost (design complexity), and capacity (massive IoT deployments per cell).
Sierra Wireless is an IoT pioneer, empowering businesses and industries to transform and thrive in the connected economy.
