SIERRA WIRELESS WEBINAR: LOW POWER WIDE AREA TECHNOLOGY FOR IOT
Only a few short years ago, the term Low Power Wide Area, or LPWA, did not exist. Today, LPWA wireless networking technologies have taken center stage in the Internet of Things connectivity arena.
Designed specifically for low-bandwidth, low-power IoT applications, LPWAs are poised to see huge growth over the next several years. But one question looms large: which LPWA technology will prevail?
No less than seven different technologies are currently being discussed. Inevitably, some will fail. Others will ultimately serve niche markets with limited use cases. For IoT device manufacturers and solution developers, betting on the wrong technology could prove a very costly mistake.
In this webinar, the speakers will address these key questions around LPWA technologies:
- The LPWA promise: Business opportunities and use cases
- Standardization or diversity: What serves the IoT industry best?
- Spectrum: Cost and availability of licensed versus noise and performance of unlicensed spectrum
- Comparing LPWA technologies: Battery life and coverage, cost and scalability, commercial availability and time to market
