There have been several developments in recent months which may greatly affect the way we engage with the IoT.

Firstly, the impending advent of 5G networks in Europe and Asia.
As the 2G shutdown draws ever closer in Australia, other continents are looking forward to the development of 5G networks.

In addition, the ongoing development of LPWAN (Low-Power Wide Area Networks) technologies has also revolutionised the way we manage power consumption in always-on devices.

In more recent news, the EU Commission is exploring options for extended spectrum licenses, possibly of periods up to 25 years.
They are expecting extended licensing to result in a more secure market
for business development by European operators, and subsequently, an increase in investment in telecoms. What will come of this remains to be seen.

Finally, the development of IoT security protocols by the Open Trust Protocol (OTrP) is expected to secure networks and applications accessing sensitive data, at an interoperable standard. This technology is still undergoing development, but you can find out more here.

M2M Connectivity works with a number of leading cellular brands to offer dual SIM and failover solutions, as well as working on solutions to provide cellular with failover to satellite – please contact us if this is of interest.
