Short Range Low Power Wireless Devices and Internet of Things (IoT)

This paper discusses the topic of the “last 100 meters connectivity” in systems where small devices (such as various sensors) are connected to services on a wide-area Internet network. Subject matters covered are the requirements on the “last 100 meters connectivity” vision as well as what wireless technologies would be suitable for future Internet of Things (IoT) use cases. This paper also presents the background to why u-blox envisions the “last 100 meters connectivity” is an important factor in the area of IoT and u-blox’ view on the impact of IoT in general.
