Although many IoT articles can be found that go in the direction LoRaWAN vs Cellular IoT this article depicts a different picture where these two can be used in a harmony. The end customers don’t care much about the connectivity solution anyway!
LoRa chips use around 5x less energy hence they can be used with cheaper batteries and the chips also cost less. The throughput is lower as well so the target applications are actually different and LoRaWAN and C-IoT can and do work together. Due to this fact Orange is pursuing both LoRaWAN and C-IoT path. The similar transition has been seend with WiFi since it was adopted by operators to be integral part of their solutions.
Part of the article is a very good webinar by Actility that explains these facts in more details.
This blog is focused on simplifying and promoting the complex but also very interesting world of IoT, 5G, networking and digitalization.
Blog’s aim is to give short, interesting and useful information and content to business people and everyone interested in IoT/5G business development, entrepreneurship and practical use cases.
The blog presents concepts and analyses, use cases, product comparisons, news roundups, interviews, educational videos, tutorials, reports and whitepapers.
If you need a machine and don’t buy it, then you will ultimately find that you have paid for it and don’t have it.
Time isn't a commodity, something you pass around like a cake. Time is the substance of life. When anyone asks you to give your time, they're really asking for a chunk of your life.
To attain knowledge, add things every day. To attain wisdom, subtract things every day.
