Will NB-IoT disrupt the LPWAN landscape?
Our comment: LoRA, Sigfox, Ingenu need to watch out; Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) is soon to be launched. Vodafone will be first out during early 2017. NB-IoT, backed by many large telcos operates in licensed spectrum and requires just a software upgrade of the mobile operator’s network to enable. This promises a low cost, full coverage, low-power network aimed at devices such as smart meters.
