連網型設備的流行，主要以蜂巢式網路為背景，過去10年劇增。從GPRS (2.5G) 開始，接著3G及與LTE (4G)和資料相容技術的可用性，提供許多連接設備無所不在的網路。近幾年的發展，可見到網際網路連接到設備/物/物件的技術的競爭登場。對許多IoT計劃來說，蜂巢式網路的成本和電力必要條件太過高價。LPWAN預計不但與蜂巢式網路競爭也會合作，到終端用戶的連接選項將有更多組合，促進市場成長。預計至2020年，LOWAN構成IoT連接整體的26％。
本報告以LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Networks) 為主題，提供現有/計劃中的業務/商業性背景的各種LPWAN技術的評估和比較，開發階段，到實施為止的時間表及成本分析等彙整資料。
The population of connected devices has grown rapidly over the past decade, largely on the back of cellular networks. The availability of data friendly technologies starting with GPRS (2.5G), followed by 3G and LTE (4G) has provided an almost ubiquitous network for connecting machines. Cellular networks domination the M2M/IoT market may be about to change.
Recent developments have seen the emergence of technologies competing for the connection of machines/things/objects to the internet. For many IoT projects, cellular network costs and power requirements are too high.
This report investigates the plethora of low powered wireless access networks (LPWANs) rapidly becoming available to address these requirements. The purpose of this report is to assess and compare the various LPWAN technologies, both existing and planned in a business and commercial context. Although some comparisons of the different technologies are included in the report these are in the context of their stage of development, time to implement and costs.
This report shows that LOWANs will become an important connectivity medium for the IoT. Companies developing LPWAN networks and technologies are offering the low cost and low power of mesh networks but with wide area network credentials rivaling that of cellular networks. The lower speeds of LPWANs are the trade-off for longer range, offering networks optimized for machine connectivity. With much lower deployment costs than cellular networks, our study shows that the availability of LPWANs will expand the market, allowing more IoT projects to be financially viable.
LPWANs will both compete and collaborate with cellular networks, stimulating market growth with more combinations of connectivity options for end-users. Our forecasts show LOWANs accounting for 26% of total IoT connectivity by 2020.
