Cellular IoT Market: Increase in Smart City Projects to Fuel Revenue Growth in the Near Future

Cellular IoT offers advanced connectivity technologies that connect billions of IoT devices to the Internet across the globe. These advanced technologies include 3G, 4G, 5G, and LPWA (Low Power Wide Area) cellular technologies such as NB-IoT and LTE-M. Cellular IoT offers global coverage, reliable connection of IoT devices, and low-cost hardware that is required for cellular IoT connections.

NB-IoT (Narrowband IoT) is a low power wide area network (LPWAN) technology, which is a 3GPP radio technology standard that addresses the LPWA requirements of IoT, and enables a wide range of devices and services to be connected using cellular telecommunication bands.

NB-IoT is one of the emerging cellular IoT technologies that enable efficient communication, extended battery life for mass distributed devices, low energy consumption, and lower costs for wide geographical footprints. The NB-IoT network is a form of low-powered network with a wide area coverage that connects millions of devices, sensors, and services.

NB-IoT applications include smart parking, smart cities, smart agriculture, industrial monitors, smoke detectors, and others. LTE-M (LTE for Machine) is also known as Cat-M1 or eMTC (enhanced machine-type communication), which is a type of cellular IoT LPWA technology that makes use of a mobile operator's 4G LTE network infrastructure. LTE-M applications include asset tracking, smart watches and fitness bands, telematics, gas or water meters, pet tracking, and others.
