The Race To Provide Low-Power Networks
When it comes to building the next generation of Internet of Things networks, it's still a bit of a Wild West situation. While major telecoms are busy getting ready to deploy the first 5G networks, which are expected to play a big role in IoT connectivity, there are smaller companies racing to get their own cut of the tens of millions of connected devices coming online in the next five years.
One area that has become increasingly important is low-power connectivity, which is integral for IoT devices that have power constraints and low data consumption. In the following slides, we take a look at five companies that are racing to build out low-power networks for IoT.
