Demystifying LTE for Future-Proofed IoT Solutions

June 28, 2018

For years, 2G and 3G networks have provided M2M and IoT organizations with the network connectivity capabilities required to power their solutions. Today, though, the cellular connectivity landscape is changing as 2G and 3G are set to be gradually phased out in the coming years in favor of LTE.

During this presentation, KORE’s EVP of IoT Solutions, Bill Kramer, will provide the guidance necessary for organizations to identify and implement the future-proofed network technology that works best for their unique business requirements, covering topics such as:

  • Impact of global 2G and 3G network shut downs

  • Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) alternatives to 2G and 3G, including emerging LTE technologies Cat-1,
    Cat-M1, NB-IoT

  • Industry-specific use cases and LPWAN applications

  • Best practices for implementation and migration

Choosing the Right LP-WAN Solution for Your IoT Application

June 7, 2018

Low-Power, Wide Area Networks (LP-WAN) come in a variety of flavors – making use of licensed and unlicensed spectrum, and with a variety of trade-offs in terms of bandwidth, latency, security, and more. While LP-WAN connectivity is generally more applicable to applications where lower cost can justify lower bandwidth than traditional cellular connections, just some of the current choices include NB-IoT, LTE-M, LoRa, and Sigfox, each with its own characteristics. This session will examine those trade-offs in the context of actual use-cases that are being commercialized.

Gigabit-class Cellular IoT is Here

Paving the Way to 5G and This is What you Need to Know About It

May 3, 2018

Wireless networks have evolved dramatically with LTE. Operators around the globe have been upgrading at such as rapid pace that growth in traffic demand has exploded along with increasing consumer appetite for social media and data-intensive applications. LTE-advanced technologies and wireless networks can now offer peak data rates of over 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps), which is well beyond the data rates provided by traditional public internet options such as DSL. In the near future, 5G will usher in a new era of super-high data rates and ultra-low latency.

For the Internet of Things (IoT), this outpacing of wired technology has made it difficult for enterprise to ignore high-speed cellular. Early enterprise use cases for wireless were fairly confined to LTE failover. But with ubiquitous coverage, increased network throughputs, and sub-10ms latency, it now has the power to become the primary connection for distributed enterprises.

Join us to learn more about high-speed cellular standards like LTE Category 18 and their impact on applications such as

  • SD-WAN

  • Mobile Gateways

  • Emergency Response Mobile Routers

  • Cellular Enterprise Networking

  • Others
