What is IoT?
Internet of Things (IoT) refers to objects that communicate with other objects and computers through a network. It is a platform that connects the physical world to the virtual world, resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit. These “things” include any objects embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators that can send and receive data.
Cellular, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are commonly used connectivity options, but these networks are often high power and expensive to adopt and maintain. As our need for data collection expands, we need technologies that are energy and cost efficient, so that they can be adopted massively globally.

Glossary of Terms
Cellular IoT: IoT using the cellular network such as 4G or 5G.
Critical IoT: IoT answering low-latency use cases such as car accident, or healthcare.
LTE-M: Abbreviation for LTE Cat-M1 or Long Term Evolution (4G), category M1. The standard is published by 3GPP as an answer to the rise in IoT-only network technology like Sigfox. It has a higher data rate, but consumes more power compared to Sigfox. The cost per byte of data is higher than traditional cellular data.
Massive IoT: IoT deployed widely, particularly in remote places, with a very low energy consumption.
LPWAN: Low Power Wide Area Network. A low bandwidth network, ideal to transmit small amount of data across the world for years or decades through simple batteries..
Sigfox: Sigfox is the name of a worldwide proprietary LPWAN network.
