LTE is tuning up for tiny IoT devices

Stephen Lawson | Jan. 7, 2016
New software from Ericsson will include an emerging cellular standard for things that don't use much data.

Some of that has already started with earlier variants of LTE. Verizon Wireless says it's already connecting devices that use the low-power specifications LTE Category 0 and LTE Category 1. Meanwhile, AT&T says it will use a protocol called LTE-M (also included in Ericsson's software) in addition to NB-IoT. Moves by big operators like these will help give cellular tools for IoT the scale they need to compete against the specialized networks, Jarich said.
