IoT and LTE
The explosion of M2M and IoT will spark a dramatic increase in the number of devices connecting to the network. This will place new demands on connectivity, so the evolution of LTE will play a crucial role. One particularly exciting technology is Narrow Band LTE (NB LTE) - specifically designed for IoT. NB LTE will enable Telstra to provide long battery life, low cost, indoor coverage for many devices. There was a strong level of confidence at MWC that LTE-based IoT standards will win the battle with IP-WAN.
