Cellular IoT System Engineering - Coming Soon

Machine to Machine communications has always been possible from the first days of GSM however the focus until the advent of mobile broadband has always been voice. This has now changed with support for Cellular IoT included in the Release 13 3GPP specifications. This course therefore explains how both IP and Non IP data can be delivered across an LTE network utilizing the enhancements of LTE-M, NB-IoT and MTC. In so doing, several IoT focussed network efficiencies are discussed along with support for device monitoring, triggering etc. Finally, support for interworking with GPRS is also addressed including an explanation of EC-GSM-IoT.
