Non-Cellular M2M: Low-power Wireless WAN and White Spaces

Purchase

The M2M market has witnessed robust growth in the last few years and is estimated to grow to an installed base of over 32 billion wireless devices by 2020. The fast growing M2M market continues to evolve with innovation across various levels of the ecosystem. The rising cost of acquiring licensed spectrum utilized by telecom operators has a direct impact on the cost of utilizing the carrier service. Coverage gaps, network complexity, shorter battery life for sensor devices, high CAPEX and recurring OPEX costs are key issues identified in current connectivity solutions.

Mobile communication networks, satellite communication networks, and fixed-line communication networks have dominated wide area network (WAN) connectivity in M2M but new emerging technologies are challenging the incumbent technologies. This report undertakes a SWOT analysis on some of the emerging LP-WWAN technologies namely On-Ramp Wireless, SIGFOX, Weightless, LoRa, and PLANet.

The report provides an overview of the current and future applications of LP-WWAN technologies to understand its adoption in vertical markets such as transport & logistics, healthcare, industrial automation, intelligent buildings, consumer electronics, smart metering, and public sector infrastructure.
