LTE Machine Type Communications Developments

Purchase

LTE MTC implies communication that occurs between machines, applications, servers, and devices. The technology utilizes LTE to transfer the data over the network, bypassing the need for human intervention. LTE MTC standardization is governed by the 3GPP standards body which delivers service requirements in the form of releases related to 3G and 4G network technologies. LTE MTC can be applicable to various use cases including smart metering, automotive applications, eHealth, security and surveillance, and inventory management. LTE MTC related use cases will also continue to develop over time as LTE networks and the M2M ecosystem matures. ABI Research forecasts LTE M2M connections to grow to 109 million connections in 2019. The forecast model also looked at total LTE cellular M2M module shipments and revenues from 2012 to 2019.
