3GPP has done the necessary work to define the various device categories dedicated to supporting IoT
Ever since the dawn of 2G, cellular has proven to be an ideal connectivity solution for IoT applications. Reasons for this are many:
- It is reliable (maintained by mobile network operators)
- It is secure (based on standards)
- It is available in all regions worldwide
- It is scalable
If implemented correctly, and based on today’s 4G and 5G standards, cellular IoT enables cost and power-optimized solutions for all types of IoT devices. Low cost and low power are prerequisites for IoT to realize sustainability and reach massive adoption.
Sequans Communications has introduced an LTE IoT module that offers device makers a quick and easy solution for connecting their IoT devices to the Orange LTE-M Network.
