Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) Networks Evolution

Machine-to-machine wireless interconnectivity is not always about high bandwidth connections operating at latencies of milliseconds. LPWA networks exist to service a segment of devices that consume low data rates, require very high battery life, and are installed in locations hard to reach. This whitepaper traces the evolution of LPWA technologies from 2.5G modules, to technologies using unlicensed spectrum, to mainstream licensed access via 3GPP technologies.
