IoT Connectivity technologies provide the network infrastructure and communication capabilities required by IoT devices to collect, transport, and exchange data over the internet and to be remotely monitored and controlled.
The IoT Connectivity research stream covers a range of communication technologies deployed in IoT projects and solutions, including:
• Low-Power Wide-Area Network (LPWAN) Technologies, e.g. Sigfox, LoRa, NB-IoT
• Cellular technologies, including 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G
• Short-Range Wireless Technologies, such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee and many others
• Satellite technologies, such as VSAT, BGAN and the newest satellite-based LPWAN
