What Is LTE-M? Long Term Evolution for Machines Explained
These Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWANs) offer affordable and efficient connectivity for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. Between its Power Saving Mode (PSM) and Discontinuous Reception (DRX), batteries in LTE-M devices can last 10 years or more.
All You Need to Know About 5G Small Cell
We are still years away from seeing widespread 5G coverage throughout the globe. But 5G small cells are helping operators deliver 5G service where it’s needed most, extending and improving coverage to more localized areas.
What Is LTE Cat-M2?
LTE Cat-M2 offers the same advantages as Cat-M1, but with faster speeds. In order to use Cat-M2, Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) have to upgrade their Cat-M1 infrastructure. IoT manufacturers, however, won’t need to invest in new technologies: Cat-M1 modems are still compatible with Cat-M2 networks, and Cat-M2 uses the same frequency bands. Since 2016, MNOs have been building up their Cat-M1 infrastructure, but in the future, this will all be Cat-M2.
