Addressing the IoT Connectivity Challenge with CBRS-based LTE – RTInsights
Many commercial and industrial organizations are exploring IoT solutions to drive productivity, automation, and cost-savings within their business. Ericsson forecasts the number of cellular IoT connections to reach 3.5 billion by 2023. Unfortunately, traditional wireless networks are not capable of handling the requirements of high-performance, low-latency IoT deployments. IoT-enabled devices require a wireless connection with superior network speeds, capacity, and reliability to enable real-time data collection for rapid data analysis and response.
Organizations often turn to Wi-Fi solutions for connectivity services as they are easy to install and inexpensive to deploy. However, Wi-Fi connections are prone to interference and lack the dependability for mission-critical IoT use cases, such as autonomous driving. Because of the absence of cost-effective, easy-to-manage solutions today, organizations are facing a connectivity issue that poses a critical barrier to IoT adoption.
