New On Demand Webinar: How LTE Cat-NB1 (NB-IoT) is Driving Cellular SoC Design Innovation

The 3GPP recently completed the standardization of a new LTE-based narrowband technology to support the emerging needs of cellular-IOT devices. Known as Cat-NB1 (formerly NB-IoT), this new low data rate category will enable the development of ultra-low power, ultra-low cost solutions that can leverage the existing LTE infrastructure for a new wave of connected devices. […]

Cellular IoT Power Saving Techniques: How Do The New Cat-M1 and Cat-NB1 Protocols Achieve Ultra-Low Energy Consumption?

As the competition over the protocols that will define the Internet of Things unfolds, 3GPP’s Cellular IoT (C-IoT) is definitely a strong contender. 3GPP Release 13 includes significant enhancements targeting C-IoT use cases. These are typically characterized by low-volume data transmissions that are not particularly sensitive to delays, for example smart grid sensors or asset […]

Game of IoT Communication Protocols: LoRa, Sigfox, NB-IoT, Wi-Fi- Will There be a Sole Ruler?

As the Internet of Things (IoT) develops and evolves across the globe, the competition between communication protocols grows increasingly heated. Instead of signs of consolidation towards one solution; companies, organizations and interest groups are inventing and refining more and more ways to tackle the challenge. This is no coincidence. The IoT is a huge domain […]
