Re: Definitions Thanks for the info, Alex. Will make sure to check out the research.

Definitions Hi Iain. Important to note that the billion "IoT connections" that Ericsson predicted does not equal Cat-M or Cat-NB, and includes a heap of stuff that runs on the older protocols. However, I'm pretty sure that when it says "cellular IoT" we can it on its word that those are Cat-M and Cat-NB. I've seen some confusion in some outlets, resulting from that terminology.

 

Also, we have LoRa at around 40mn actual devices this year, but very quickly rising to around 540mn in 2023 - although that's not total devices, rather just our view on the key use cases. If you're interested, you can take a look here - https://rethinkresearch.biz/report/key-lpwan-use-cases-forecast-to-2023/
