150m Smart City LPWAN connections expected by 2025

ON World has released a report that found Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) technology with multi-mile ranges and multi-year battery lifetimes has created a growing smart city developer opportunity, the company said.

For the past decade, smart city IoT development consisted of retrofitting existing wireless protocols with traditional information technologies. The next ten years will see intelligent city IoT growth as smart devices, sensors, cloud infrastructure and LPWANs transform city services.

The LPWAN ecosystem is experiencing growth with several standards initiatives and nation-wide network rollouts of LoRa, SigFox and RPMA.
