In the past decade, cellular technologies have provided ubiquitous connectivity and fueled the explosive growth of mobile internet services and applications. In many ways, these technologies have profoundly changed the way we live our lives. While the main drivers for further technological advancements have always been higher capacity, higher data rates, lower latency, and better coverage, a new driving force has emerged in recent years: to evolve cellular technologies to become the Internet of Things (IoT), providing ubiquitous coverage for very different types of devices and meeting the requirements of a full array of use cases. This presentation gives an overview of Cellular IoT technologies and how they enable smart cities and industrial automation use cases.
