How Low-Power IoT Can Help Save the Planet
Climate disasters, breaking infrastructure, stressed supply-chains and low food productivity are certainly issues in the public foreground, but there’s hope. Sensorization, or “Mass IoT” – widespread deployment of communicating sensors – can help predict and speed response to many of these problems. Connectivity like narrow-band IoT (NB-IoT) and low-power wide area networks (LP-WAN), as well as messaging protocols like lightweight M2M (LW-M2M), not only cut the costs of transmitting data but offer low-cost hardware options and extend the life of batteries and other components. This panel will discuss how new technologies are driving down the cost of communicating devices.
