LTE Cat M1 is a new cellular technology specifically designed for the needs of applications targeting the Internet of Things (IoT) or machine-to-machine (M2M) communications.
What is LTE Cat M1?
LTE Cat M1 is a low?power wide?area (LPWA) air interface that lets you connect IoT and M2M devices with medium data rate requirements (375 kb/s upload and download speeds in half duplex mode). It enables longer battery lifecycles and greater in?building range, as compared to standard cellular technologies such as 2G, 3G, or LTE Cat 1. Key features include:
·Support of voice functionality via VoLTE
·Full mobility and in?vehicle hand?over
·Low power consumption
·Extended in?building range
