Evaluation of LTE-M towards 5G IoT requirements

LTE-M, a machine-focused variant of the 3GPP LTE standard, is designed to meet the high-coverage, low-cost, and low-power consumption requirements of the Internet of Things (IoT). In January 2017, a group of more than a dozen industry players evaluated LTE-M’s coverage performance, and published a white paper which concludes that LTE-M supports the very deep coverage required for IoT applications. This follow-up paper takes the next step to evaluate the message latency, battery life, and capacity performance for LTE-M category M-1 devices.

Download this white paper to learn how LTE-M performs against the initial Cellular IoT (CIoT), and 3GPP 5G IoT or massive Machine-Type Communications (mMTC) requirements.
