[Whitepaper] ‘LPWA: Unlocking the Future of the Internet of Things’ from MultiTech
The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is huge and options for industrial connectivity are very broad. Choosing the right connectivity technology or mix of technologies depends on what kind of application is going to be developed, how it will be implemented and where. Cost, complexity, distance, the amount of data that is transmitted, whether or not there could potentially be obstacles in the way of the signal, among others, can present unique challenges to connecting devices over long distances, particularly in rural areas and deep into buildings. That’s why MultiTech offers a variety of embedded devices as well as modems, gateways and routers that address connectivity across a variety of technologies including analog, Ethernet, cellular, PAN and LPWA.

“LPWA offers the opportunity to free industrial applications from the consumer-driven cycles of the public cellular networks”
There is no clear winner takes all – each available technology provides unique suitability for particular applications. LPWA networks seek to remove the inherent risk associated with deploying machine communications on consumer-driven networks as well as reducing cost and power draw and offer the promise of blended private and public networks for assets that are required to be deployed and running for many years in order to deliver solid ROI even on low cost assets.
