Low-Power Wide Area Network Connectivity Optimised for Internet of Things

Low-Power Wide Area Network Connectivity Optimised for Internet of Things

Low power wide area networks (LPWAN) which have low data rate are designed to support millions of devices that generate small volumes of data and require extended range and energy efficient networks. The LPWAN space is highly contested between proprietary solutions in licence-free spectrum and mobile operators' alternatives based on emerging long-term evolution (LTE) standards. Frost & Sullivan assesses the key growth opportunities in the LPWAN space and provides an analysis of the competitive environment and vertical market application areas.
