Understanding the Practicality of LTE-M
A Simplicity Series White Paper from Ingenu
LTE-M is an attempt to take LTE technology, strip it down and tweak it with two objectives in mind: 1) improve coverage area per tower, and 2) make it a lower-power technology. In short, take LTE and make it comparable to other LPWA technologies.
In this white paper, we’ll take a look at certain aspects of LTE-M, those most pertinent to solution providers creating solutions designed for LPWA connectivity, and discuss LTE-M as it meets or falls short in delivering on LPWA criteria.
