The Whole World is Wireless with LTE

By Carl Ford April 25, 2017

When LTE was first set up as a standard the need for better bandwidth services was at its peak. Consumers and Enterprises required more through put to their applications, data and videos. LTE became the most have service if you were carrying a smart phone or tablet.

Today, almost everyone around the world has a choice of using LTE from a service provider. However, LTE has become a wireless standard that has strategies that go beyond the service provider model. Enterprises can find ways to use and implement LTE for everything from remote sensors to in building shared resources. 

Part of the value for LTE as a standard is the economies of scale. LTE has over 387 Million devices deployed and with advances in Narrow Band and antenna categories, LTE has increased its reach into the Internet of Things marketplace.

For service providers, this has been an imperative as the carriers have been consolidating their infrastructure to support a common model. For enterprises this has made deployment strategies more flexible as the modules selection can be based on LTE’s optimized network interfaces.

This is not to say that Wi-Fi is going away or that other LPWAN solutions don’t have their place. However, in terms of consistency and ubiquity and LTE is alone in terms of volume.

However much of the needs that are being supported with Wi-Fi and LPWAN are being addressed in the standards that have been coming to market since last year. Carriers are in various stages of rolling out their IoT services using LTE, and like the carrier, the Enterprise can find alternative solutions now.

Sierra Wireless makes the smallest LTE modules. When it comes to IoT, footprint, power and ubiquity are the essential elements. If you would like to learn about the advantages of LTE, please join me on Thursday April 27th @ 2PM EDT for a webinar about “The Top 5 Considerations about LTE in your Business”.
