Low-Power Wide Area Network Connectivity Will Drive China's IoT Market to Grow Significantly; GSMA's Mobile IoT Program Will Help Mobile Operators Accelerate the Launch of Commercial Solutions
According to the latest report released today by the GSMA Intelligence and the China Institute of Information and Communications (CAICT), the total number of connections in the Chinese machine-to-machine (M2M) market will reach 1 billion by 2020, most of which are based on low- Consumption of the Wide Area Network (LPWA) market. The report entitled "Mobile Operators and Digital Transformation" pointed out that China is currently the world's largest M2M market. The number of cellular M2M connections is about 100 million. By 2020, this figure is expected to be Increased to 350 million. The LPWA technology will provide an additional 730 million connections, making the total number of connections more than 1 billion. By 2025, it is expected that 50% of the 28 billion interconnected devices worldwide will be suitable for LPWA network connectivity.
GSMA Chief Technology Officer Alex Sinclair said: "With the support of the government, China has quickly become the world's largest M2M market, and LPWA will play a fundamental role in the future growth of M2M, thus serving as an important field and industry operator in the country. Providing connectivity brings new opportunities.The GSMA's mobile IoT program is working with China's mobile network operators to provide commercialized LPWA solutions for licensed spectrum, aiming to accelerate the adoption of Internet of Things in agriculture, automobiles, and utilities. And guide its development and transformation."
The LPWA network is designed for M2M applications. These applications are usually in remote locations, have low data transmission rates, require long battery life, and can operate unattended for long periods of time. The GSMA Mobile IoT program helps the industry to unify the worldwide licensed spectrum technology standards applicable to the LPWA market, which are now published by 3GPP. Three complementary technologies—Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT), EC-GSM-IOT, and LTE Machine Type Communication (LTE-MTC)—will cover all LPWA usage scenarios for users to choose from and help the Internet of Things market Flourish.
The authorized LPWA network will complete and expand the traditional wide area network, which uses 2G and 4G cellular technologies, as well as LANs such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Zigbee. These licensing standards enable operators to optimize their existing mobile network infrastructure by upgrading to EC-GSM-IoT for 2G networks and LTE-MTC for LTE networks, while NB-IoT can use both 2G and 4G simultaneously. Spectrum. The GSMA Mobile IoT program has been supported by 36 global mobile operators, equipment manufacturers and chip sets, modules and infrastructure companies. It is dedicated to accelerating the development of LPWA solutions and leveraging the full commercialization that is expected to be launched later this year. The solution supports multiple pilot sites around the world.
LPWA unveiled at Mobile World Congress - Shanghai
During the Mobile World Congress in Shanghai, demonstrations of multiple LPWA technologies will be conducted in the GSMA Innovation City Zone (stands A38 and E37) in Hall N3. Mobile World Congress - Shanghai will be held on June 29 (Wednesday) to July 1 (Friday) at the Shanghai New International Expo Center. During these three days, participants will have the opportunity to experience LPWA within the authorized frequency spectrum. How the Internet will connect everything from pets to street lighting. The GSMA will also hold the IoT Summit at the Kerry Hotel Pudong, Shanghai on June 30th (Thursday). The industry's leading experts will share their insights on the latest applications and technologies in the mobile Internet of Things industry.
