Inside This Report
Low-Power Wide-Area Networks (LPWANs) serve a distinct niche in the Internet of Things—between local area networks and high-bandwidth cellular services—for devices that only need to periodically trickle out small amounts of data over long distances, and do so consuming minimal power. Many different technical approaches fit within the LPWAN banner, including those using licensed and unlicensed frequency spectrum.
