Ericsson says CAT-M1 and NB-IoT connections tripled in 2019
In the latest, June, edition of the Ericsson Mobility Report the company is forecasting NB-IoT and Cat-M1 to account for 52 percent of all cellular IoT connections by the end of 2025.
Ericsson says it has identified 125 mobile service providers that have launched at least one of these networks and 25 percent have launched both. Telstra has offered CAT-M1 nationwide since February 2017. NB-IoT became available in major centres a year later.
