The benefits of LTE-M
Lower hardware costs and longer battery life offset by:
LTE-M will provide the most energy efficient solution for applications that are battery or solar powered.
Wide range of IoT use cases
Best for low power IoT devices that require higher speed or two-way data transfers, mobility or voice/SMS services.
Lower hardware costs and longer battery life make LTE-M a cost-effective wireless solution.
Mobile & stationary use cases
LTE-M supports cell to cell roaming making it better for mobile applications and has better signal penetration for indoor or under-ground deployments.
Considerations for deploying LTE-M
Currently limited or no coverage in many countries
Only a single network per country
Single network in most countries limits resilience
Cell to cell roaming
LTE-M supports mobile and stationary sensor application
Supports broader range of applications v NB-IoT
Voice, SMS, Data support makes LTE-M a good general purpose solution
2G/3G network sunsetting
NB-IoT is a good alternative to 2G/3G in some use-cases
Applications we’re connecting with LTE-M…
LTE-M works well for mobile asset tracking because it allows IoT devices to run from battery power and actively track across regions.
LTE-M supports a wide range of applications such as car park sensors, smart street lighting, traffic monitoring cameras and sensors, and outdoor air-quality can help manage air pollution.
The use of IoT devices can improve the safety and efficiency of industrial production.
Sensors can monitor dangerous liquids and gases in tanks, including the correct levels, temperature or pressure.
