Mobile (cellular) IoT technology is becoming a major player in the IoT space. Mobile Internet of Things refers to low power wide area (LPWA) 3GPP standardised secure operator managed IoT networks in the licensed spectrum (GSMA definition). The 2 complementary licensed 3GPP standards: Long-Term Evolution for Machines (LTE-M) and Narrowband-Internet of Things (NB-IoT) are the focus of the mobile IoT industry.
But what are they? LTE-M is used forLPWA technologies like NB-IoT will enable the connection of billions of devices of the IoT ,in the licensed spectrum, that will be used in machine-to-machine communication instead of communications to people.
