Evaluation of LTE-M towards 5G IoT requirements

This white paper evaluates the performance of LTE-M in meeting the high coverage, low-cost and low-power consumption demanded for cellular IoT applications.

Comparing LTE-M’s performance against 3GPP requirements, the study reveals LTE-M capable of 10.4 years of battery life in extremely deep coverage, with a message latency of just 6.2 seconds, exceeding the set performance requirements for Release 13 LTE-M specifications. With further Release 15 enhancements expected to support the 5G IoT requirements in all system configurations, the paper concludes that LTE-M is on track to support the future 5G and mMTC application requirements.
