    LTE-M: What's in it for your IoT solution?

    LTE-M is the new 3GPP standard of Low Power Wide Area Networks optimized for medium to low-bandwidth IoT device communication. Amid global 2G and 3G sunsetting, LTE-M introduces a future-proof alternative for growing mobile and stationary IoT applications across verticals.

    Small form factor

    Smaller-sized modems that fit in compact, modular IoT sensor devices.

    “As we moved to support LTE-M and NB-IoT with VuLink, EMnify was very committed and had clear plans that aligned with our launch timeline. Frankly, other providers we had talked to did not. Thanks to EMnify’s robust LTE-M service, our product rollout has been wildly successful.”

    Top considerations for global deployment

    LTE-M frequency bands

    LTE-M frequency bands

    In total, there are 26 frequency bands allowed for LTE-M operations. In practice, only a subset of these bands is widely used by network operators.

    From an IoT vendor perspective, connected devices with integrated cellular modules need to be tested and certified for all used frequency bands, according to the national or regional regulation. 

    By knowing commonly deployed frequency bands at your device location, you can simplify antenna design while reducing certification costs.

    PSM-eDRX-graph

    Feature availability

    While PSM and eDRX are two critical low-power features in LTE-M, they are not yet fully supported by network operators in roaming scenarios. 

    To ensure customers have the best knowledge of service quality for an informed connectivity decision, EMnify frequently tests the availability of these features and updates the coverage information respectively.

    EMnify's LTE-M coverage

    As of today, EMnify provides multi-network LTE-M connectivity in 51 countries across five continents with a global IoT SIM. We offer three service levels (expected, validated, and guaranteed coverage*) depending on your deployment location and advise you on network coverage, quality, and availability in line with your IoT project.
