What is Internet Breakout?
So an Internet breakout may be your local Wi-Fi router at home - or the gateway of your IoT sensors. In a cellular network internet breakout is the point where the data leaves the operator network. So for local networks such as Wi-Fi or Bluetooth - the internet breakout is usually at the location of the device itself - for cellular networks the breakout is in a central place of the home operator - the one that sold the SIM card.
What Is 5G? Everything You Need to Know
5G networks are vastly improving high-speed Internet connectivity around the globe and opening the door to a revolution in the Internet of Things (IoT). There are already billions of IoT devices, but the wider bandwidth and more efficient spectrum usage of 5G networks will allow far more devices to operate in close proximity without interfering with one another.
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.
