IoT Ecosystem Report
Since the March 2018 report on the IoT Ecosystem & Evolution to Narrow Band Internet of Things (IoT), the continued mobile industry commitment to the range of 3GPP-standards-based Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technologies has been characterised by the dramatic growth in the number of networks supporting NB-IoT and LTE-MTC (LTE-M) networks, and the substantial growth in the number of IoT modules for Cat-NB1 and Cat-M1 products, as well as more recently, the release of chipsets and modules compliant with Rel-14 Cat-NB2. There are:
Note that a technology is regarded as deployed when it has been installed in the operator’s commercial network, and it is intended to remain in use (a trial or pilot installation might be discontinued). A network is considered to be commercially launched once it is available at least on a limited basis for the use of commercial customers.
In terms of IoT Ecosystem equipment, GSA has identified:
The 3GPP IoT technologies NB-IoT and LTE-M are set to become the global dominant LPWA technologies that will enable huge IoT market growth.
