The Internet of Things Opens Doors to New Cellular CapabilitiesEscrito por Redacción TNI el 17/11/2015 a las 19:31:45
With the opportunity of 20 billion or more connected devices anticipated by 2020, the wireless industry is making significant progress in facilitating the Cellular Internet of Things (CIoT) standard. 4G Americas, the industry trade association and voice of 5G for the Americas, today published a new white paper titled, Cellular Technologies Enabling the Internet of Things, which explores the key considerations for developing an end-to-end CIoT solution.
This paper examines the essential aspects that encompass the development of IoT use cases specifically enabled by cellular technologies which includes IoT market drivers and the end-to-end technical framework for cellular IoT/Machine Type Communication (MTC) use cases. Emerging LTE technology enhancements and new MTC features with a focus on Category 0,1 and M devices are also explained. Furthermore, the paper addresses innovations in low cost design and power management for cellular modules, as well as the evolution of LTE MTC for 5G radio access.
Rao Yallapragada, Director of Technology Strategy, Intel, and co-leader of the work group that authored the white paper, stated, “To address the Cellular Internet of Things opportunity, the global standards organization, 3GPP, is defining progressive IoT technology refinements that occur over multiple 3GPP Releases to insure the reduction of complexity and power consumption to address the needs of varied use cases.”
The Cellular Internet of Things will be an important access methodology to support and enable communications over large scale IoT devices, additionally:
