The need for low cost, high reach, wide area connectivity for the Internet of Things

March 1, 2016

The Internet of Things is starting to become a reality aided by the widespread availability of smartphones and tablets to provide a suitable user interface. Machina Research forecasts almost 20bn M2M connected devices by 2022. These devices will be spread across a wide variety of locations, some of which will be hard to reach – either because they are remote and outside the range of most communications networks, or because they are underground or deep inside buildings. M2M devices will be used for an enormous variety of
applications with different communications requirements.
