At this Connected Devices online SIG event we discussed how micro-powered, energy-harvesting IoT devices are going to communicate over the next decade.
One significant operator, Japan's DoCoMo, has just killed off their NB-IoT data service, probably because the business model of $1 per device per year didn't make sense. NB-IoT was going to replace the old, simple, low-powered 2G/GPRS services that many operators are retiring. Which leaves a bit of a gap, as 4G technology is a lot more power-hungry and complex, and 5G is only going to continue that trend.
With presentations from;
- Henk Koopmans, CEO, Huawei R&D (UK) on 'Behind the curve or left behind?’
- Arne Aßmann, Head of Strategy and Business Development, 1NCE GmbH on ‘Heading towards a standardized low-power IoT ecosystem’
The session was chaired by Nick Hunn, from WiFore Consulting and CW Connected Devices SIG Champion.
