  • Why Low-Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) is considered the key technology for wireless IoT WAN?

Wide Area Network (WAN) communications for the Internet of Things (IoT) is the core backbone for machine-to-machine (M2M) signaling for the rapid-evolving IoT application and service ecosystem. The three cellular IoT WAN methods are known as EC-GSM-IoT/3GPP, LTE-M/3GPP, and NB-IoT/3GPP. There are also non-cellular alternative Low Power WAN (LPWAN) approaches that allow for long-range communications at a low bit rate. Each of these technologies have an important role to play in the M2M/IoT ecosystem.

For example, LPWAN-connected sensors are used for the detection of changes in the physical and/or logical relationship of one object to another(s) and/or the environment. Physical changes may include temperature, light, pressure, sound, and motion. Logical changes include the presence/absence of an electronically traceable entity, location, and/or activity. Within an IoT context, physical and logical changes are equally important. These types of solutions are used for many industrial applications across a wide variety of industry verticals.

Within the consumer segment, electronic devices have historically represented stand-alone objects functioning in isolation. This is rapidly changing as high-end consumer appliances, digital equipment, and assets as well as many lower-cost devices gain connectivity through embedded computing and communications.

A connected consumer device may be used for various purposes including entertainment, news, information, and general lifestyle enhancement. IoT WANs provide the means for ubiquitous M2M connectivity between consumer devices, manufacturers, and service providers.

While much focus is on IoT end-points and related issues such as security and power, ubiquitous wireless coverage remains the overarching issue for transformation from traditional M2M to global IoT networks. Adoption of IoT connectivity creates substantial opportunities for LPWAN network, hardware, and software services.
