NB-IoT as the key technology to drive the LPWA industry forward.
Regionally, although Western Europe and North America witnessed early deployments of public LPWA networks, the Asia-pacific, especially China, has been a pivotal market for driving large-scale adoption of NB-IoT and LoRa.
LPWA networks will be used for a wide variety of applications such as industrial asset tracking, safety monitoring, water and gas metering, smart grids, city parking, vending machines and city lighting.
Alex Sinclair, chief technology officer, GSMA said: "The GSMA's Mobile IoT Initiative is working with China's mobile network operators to deliver commercial LPWA solutions in licensed spectrum to accelerate adoption and transform the development of the Internet of Things in areas such as agriculture, automotive and utilities."
In the coming years, Etisalat plans to explore more LPWA verticals powered by NB-IoT - from smart water meters to smart parking to smart tracking to more vertical industries, and thus bringing Etisalat more capabilities to fulfill the requirements of smart city.
