What is Mobile IoT?
Mobile IoT (also called Cellular LPWA or c-LPWA) networks were designed as a response to the growing need for long-range connectivity that doesn’t come with unwieldy energy or budget expenditures.
Unlike other existing cellular solutions, Mobile IoT technology is engineered to support devices that only require a limited amount of bandwidth to function and aren’t communicating constant streams of information. For IoT projects whose needs fit these criteria, like connected sensors and meters, Mobile IoT’s focus translates to a longer effective lifetime for battery-powered devices, and relatively low costs for powering, connecting, and maintaining devices—making mass deployment and management possible.
Comprised of two mobile data standards, Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) and LTE-M (also called Cat-M), Mobile IoT technology allows businesses to affordably connect and control devices on a larger scale, giving more industries access to the insight and automation offered by custom IoT applications.
Impending widespread applications include:
- Smart metering for utilities such as electricity, gas and water
- Wearable health and fitness technology
- Industrial connectivity (Industrial IoT)
- Connected city streetlights and parking meters
- Smart homes and buildings including security alarm and surveillance
- Asset tracking, including livestock and cold-chain managementSmart waste management
