LPWAN (low power wide area network) technologies service a specific and necessary role in the growth of Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity. Not all applications need bandwidth and speed. Sometimes long distance, low energy usage, and long latency is the perfect confluence of service that an IoT application needs. Some examples are city lighting, energy grid and meter management, parking space monitoring, precision irrigation, crop yield management, and many more.
This webcast will present different LPWAN technologies and discuss a number of questions regarding technology and value assessment, deployment, usage of such networks, and return on investment evaluations.
- An explanation of LPWAN technology and how it works
- When to use (and not use) LPWAN technology
- What issues such networks solve
- The difference between U.S. and European bands and when this will matter to a company deploying an LPWAN network
- Key information that cities and companies need to both ask and be ready to answer when planning to deploy an LPWAN network, in order to assess the right fit and to maximize efficiencies such connectivity can bring
- How LPWAN networks integrate with other network infrastructure in smart community deployments, for example
- Sample use cases
- Business models that use LPWAN networks for energy management, asset management, and others
- How to make money as both a user and deployer of LPWAN networks
- What returns on investment can be expected and suggested metrics for measurement
