December 18, 2018 / Muhammad Usama

The Internet of Things, or IoT, refers to the billions of devices, vehicles, and home appliances around the world that are now connected to the internet, all collecting and sharing data. While IoT offers us opportunity to be more efficient in how we do things, saving us time, money, its implementation is not without its costs. One of the greatest threats to the IoT comes from the strain put on the global system of information exchange that the IoT relies upon. The Cellular Internet-of-things (IoT) is envisioned to bring a myriad of transformative opportunities for mobile network operators across various fields. Nevertheless, the support of IoT applications requires solutions tailored to their unique requirements compared to human-type traffic. For instance, many of these applications rely on the deployment of a large number of low-cost battery-powered IoT devices, with each device generating low-rate sporadic traffic. In addition, some IoT objects are located deep indoors, e.g., utilit...
