[TPR1001] IoT in Wireless Networks *NEW*

Printer-friendly PDF version

Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to dominate telecom market where machines exchange data for intelligent applications. Devices and networks supporting IoT pose unique challenges such as low power, low cost, low mobility, and longer field life. This course addresses several technology options proposed by 3GPP to meet these requirements. Among the technology options, enhanced machine type communication (eMTC), Narrowband Cellular IoT (NB-CIoT) and Narrowband LTE (NB-LTE) are embraced by vendors and chipset community. This course also discusses salient features and characteristics of air interface supported by eMTC, NB-CIoT and NB-LTE.
