Track 3: IoT Connectivity – Licensed vs. Unlicensed

Licensed cellular networks are available from 5G down to NB-IoT and LTE-M, offering alternatives from the highest possible bandwidth to lower data plans. At the same time, LoRa-WAN and other unlicensed options are providing low-power alternatives and the next generation of satellite alternatives cannot be ignored. All of these connectivity options offer different OpEx, coverage, throughput, flexibility, complexity, and service levels.
