Cellular LPWAN to generate $2.3B in recurring revenue by 2027

Kaleido Intelligence forecasts that cellular LPWAN will generate $2.3 billion in recurring connectivity revenue by 2027.

The figure represents an over twofold increase from the under $900 million set to be generated from cellular LPWAN connectivity in 2022.

“LPWAN has a delicate balancing act to maintain. Data-based monetisation has been shown to be uneconomical for network operators,” says James Moar, Principal Analyst at Kaleido Intelligence.

ABI Research: 4G is still the go-to for IoT connectivity

A study conducted by ABI Research finds that 4G is still the go-to solution for IoT connectivity.

The new year hasn’t brought with it a new dominant IoT connectivity standard. ABI Research monitored the activities of 1,037 IoT models across 52 module vendors and found competing standards have some way to go to catch up to 4G.

4G accounts for over 60 percent of cellular modules—spanning both high bandwidth CAT12 to CAT20, and high bandwidth CAT1 to CAT4. 5G represents...

Amazon launches Sidewalk Bridge Pro to extend its network into public spaces

Amazon is extending its low-bandwidth, long-distance network to public spaces with the launch of the Sidewalk Bridge Pro.
