LTE-M: Optimizing LTE for the Internet of Things

Numerous services are envisioned for cellular IoT, including utility meters, vending machines, automotive (fleet management, smart traffic, real time traffic information to the vehicle, security monitoring and reporting), medical metering and alerting. In addition, different devices such as e-book readers, GPS navigation aids and digital cameras are already connected to the Internet.

The key requirements for cellular IoT to enable these services and to compete with non-cellular technologies are:

• Long battery life
• Low device cost
• Low deployment cost
• Full coverage
• Support for a massive number of devices

This white paper outlines a cellular IoT solution based on LTE that complies with these requirements and enhances the radio and core networks.
