Why is LPWA Cellular the Next Big Thing For Enterprise IoT?
Since its inception, cellular IoT deployments have had to adapt to life on cellular-phone specialized 2G, 3G, and early-generation 4G networks. All that has changed with the deployment of the 4G low-power wide-area (LPWA) networks of Cat-M and Cat-NB. Longer battery life, efficient and safe IoT communication, and more; Telit IoT expert Ken Bednasz explores what exciting new aspects enterprises can expect with cellular IoT on LPWA networks.

Don’t judge a module by its cover!
While cellular IoT modules might share a similar metallic cover and look, that doesn’t mean they’re all the same. Inside is a complicated network of hardware and software enabling the ‘frontline’ of your enterprise – whether that in a smart home, in a smart agriculture sensor, or smart fleet. Listen to Telit IoT Expert Ken Bednasz explain when looking at a module vendor (versus your own embedded solution or a ready-made solution) is right, and what you should be looking for if you want to be confident in your IoT deployment – and who doesn’t?
