Considerable research was done using the Internet. Information from various Web sites was studied and analyzed; evaluation of publicly available marketing and technical publications was also conducted. Telephone conversations and interviews were held with industry analysts, technical experts and executives. In addition to these interviews and primary research, secondary sources were used to develop a more complete mosaic of the market landscape, including industry and trade publications, conferences and seminars.
The overriding objective throughout the work has been to provide valid and relevant information. This has led to a continual review and update of the information content.
This report provides the Sub-1GHz communications technologies and markets analysis and assessments; it concentrates on the recent developmental trends in connection with the IoT/M2M implementation. The report is useful for service providers, retail operators, vendors, network operators and managers, investors and end users seeking to gain a deeper understanding of opportunities and barriers on the discussed subjects.
IoT/M2M networking is rapidly becoming one of the largest parts of the global telecommunications infrastructure. Its realization needs to address specifics of connectivity between billions of smart objects, such as sensors, switches and similar. The industry is responding to new challenges by adapting the existing technologies and creating a new set of communications technologies specifically for IoT/M2M.
This report concentrates on properties and benefits of wireless communications in Sub-1GHz ISM bands. The report emphasizes that the industry is actively investigating opportunities of this portion of the spectrum to improve IoT/M2M communications characteristics.
The following Sub-1GHz technologies, related markets, standards and applications have been analyzed to emphasize their value for the IoT/M2M development:
-Short range communications
-Long range communications
o IEEE 802.15.4g
o IEEE 802.11af
o IEEE 802.11ah
o IEEE 802.22
o UNB (Ultra-narrow Band).
The major attractions of these Sub-1GHz technologies for IoT/M2M communications include:
-Extended range – they allow 5-10 times longer reaches over 2.4 GHz band transmissions. This is the result of smaller losses when signal is traveling through various obstacles; besides, the Sub-1GHz ISM bands are less crowded;
-Low power consumption;
-Support of multiple IoT/M2M applications that allow a relatively slow rate of transmission.
The report reflects the progress in communications technologies developments to allow efficiently utilize Sub-1GHz spectrum in IoT/M2M applications. It also depicts a complex picture of IoT/M2M communications technologies standardization with multiple incompatible solutions.
The industry shows all signs of interest in the utilization of Sub-1GHz ISM bands for IoT/M2M communications; there are great opportunities that have not been realized until recently.
The report is written for a wide audience of technical and managerial staff involved in the development of the IoT/M2M market.
