IoT Connectivity: LPWAN to 5G

Date April 15, 2020
Time 11am ET

Event Detail


In this webinar you will learn about the multiple cellular technology options for deploying your IoT business regionally and globally: from the current LPWAN technologies implementation to the upcoming 5G.

Your Cellular IoT solution whether deployed regionally or globally, needs a suitable and futureproof technology solution

Developing and deploying your Cellular IoT solution requires the correct choice in technology and preferably a futureproof solution that survives multiple generations of your product. Establishing global connectivity with the right technology for your IoT solution can be challenging and is often not your organization’s core competency. The many technology choices can seem like an alphabet soup; 4G, 5G, LTE-M, NB-IoT, eUICC/eSIM, iSIM, nuSIM, etc. Selecting the wrong technology can dramatically affect your solution’s cost, coverage, flexibility, and longevity.


  • What the various CIoT technologies and worldwide implementation status are: 4G, LTE-M, NB-IoT, 5G
  • Which technology for which use case?
  • How the 4th and 5th generation of cellular technologies are enabling massive IoT
  • How to select the best global connectivity solution
