GSA Snapshot: NB-IoT and LTE-M Global Ecosystem

Major industry initiatives worldwide, in areas like connected and autonomous vehicles, connected or smart homes, agriculture, robotics, smart industry, smart cities and smart energy, are exploring the potential of the Internet of Things (IoT). Companies are actively working on IoT use cases involving both NB-IoT and LTE-MTC (LTE-M) networks, and the market has been boosted by the greater need for remote operations during the pandemic.

GSA is tracking IoT infrastructure, chipsets, modules and devices that are now available from a range of companies — large and small, well-established and start-ups. The increasing size of the 3GPP ecosystem will further drive commercialization and economies of scale in IoT, with mobile operators, infrastructure suppliers, chipset and module manufacturers, device companies and development and testing houses supporting new services.

What you will learn:

  • The global status of deployed or launched NB-IoT and LTE-M networks
  • Operator investments in NB-IoT launches, plans and trials
  • Status of investment in LTE-M networks by country
  • The ecosystem of low-power wide area network devices based on 3GPP standards
