Mobile networks have primarily been developed to support the connectivity requirements of mobile phones. "However," says John Delaney, IDC Europe's Associate Vice President of Mobility Research, "the Internet of Things [IoT] is giving rise to a growing set of applications and devices that require very different things from the network." This report provides an overview of technologies that are aimed at making mobile networks more suitable for IoT devices and applications. In particular, it assesses low-power/wide-area (LPWA) upgrades for mobile networks and the IoT-focused capabilities of the forthcoming fifth generation (5G) mobile networks.
