More and more market segments are looking to 4G and 5G
cellular to connect their IoT applications.
Cellular (4G and 5G) technologies have become simplified and cost-effective, while remaining ultra-reliable and secure, leading us to today where it is well-accepted as the best technology to connect virtually any IoT application, from the smallest sensor device, on up to asset trackers, alarm panels, and connected cars. 4G and 5G are about spectrum efficiency, longevity, scalability, and economic advantage for device makers and operators, and no other low power, wide area (LPWA) technology can compare. It is inevitable that eventually, all devices connected to the vast internet of things will be connected by cellular 4G and 5G.
Increasing investment in smart grid projects, caused by growing interest of utility companies in conservation, efficiency, and cost reduction in electric, gas, and water meter reading, has created opportunities in residential, commercial and industrial market segments.
