White Paper: Guide to Mobile IoT
New white paper published by Telenor offers much needed detail to a growing area of importance for field service companies as we move into an era of connected field service…
Connectivity is a crucial part of product design and performance and the choice of connectivity technology must be considered early in the process. This is a challenging choice given the quick technology and market development.
5G technologies are around the corner, 2G and 3G networks are starting to be phased out and new network technologies that support LPWAN are starting to become globally available in the form of LTE-M and NB-IoT- also referred to as Mobile IoT.
For the first time networks have been developed to answer the specific needs of connecting things. Previously, connected units have been communicating on infrastructure developed for consumer needs.
LTE-M and NB-IoT are standardized, secure, and operator-managed in licensed spectrum. They are designed for IoT applications that are low cost, use low data rates, require long battery lives and often operate in locations that are hard to reach.
LTE-M and NB-IoT will be the obvious choices for industries looking for 2G and 3G replacements for devices with long lifecycles, requiring extended device battery life and coverage.
Both technologies are good choices for deployments with expected lifespans of a decade or more, however, there are differences between them that make each of them more suitable for some IoT applications rather than others.
So which one is the best choice for your application? We strongly recommend reading the guide available to Field Service News subscribers to help you better understand this question – as it is of critical importance.
This guide describes the relative benefits and limitations of each technology to help enterprises to make the right selection for long-term success.
However, this detailed guide will be available to all subscribers on an FSN Free subscription for a limited time only so access your guide now!
