Low power wide area technologies: Separating fact from fiction
Event date: December 1, 2015 | 16:00 UK time
With analysts predicting billions of Internet of Things (IoT) devices coming online by 2020, there is enormous industry interest in the technology that will connect all those devices. Low power wide area (LPWA) technologies are poised to see huge growth over the next several years and are designed specifically for low-bandwidth, low-power IoT applications.
But one question looms large: which LPWA technology will prevail? At the moment, there is more confusion than clarity around this question. No less than seven different technologies are now being discussed today and inevitably, some will fail.
