LPWA Applications: Smart Cities

LPWA Technology Unleashes Smart City Innovation

The Internet of Things (IoT) is powering a new generation of breakthroughs that enhance public safety and improve quality of life. Today, cities connect individual applications such as street lights, connected transit, traffic light systems, etc. However, they mostly operate in silos, making them more complex and expensive. Even worse, cities can’t tap the full potential they could realize if everything was linked within a single system.

Now, 3GPP low-power wide-area (LPWA) network technologies are breaking down Smart City silos. Designed specifically for low-bandwidth, low-power IoT applications, they’re making Smart City innovation a lot simpler, less expensive, and more exciting.
