  • Author: Matt Stergiou

Cellular connectivity is one of the fastest-growing engineering trends in the IoT world, with good reason. The ultra-low power consumption of LTE-M and NB-IoT allows wireless devices in the field to extend battery life to ten years or more – an advantage that will appeal to engineers working on IoT implementation projects where battery life is critical. LTE-M and NB-IoT combine that extraordinary battery life with cost-effective use of wireless data. This makes them far more practical than higher throughput LTE-connected devices of the past that had high operational costs for data usage.

This white paper is essentially a Part 2 that follows Jonathan Kaye’s checklist, putting a spotlight on key question that most engineers will face once they delve into cellular IoT projects: Should you use a module or a modem in your design.
