Unlike traditional cellular applications, IoT applications require devices to transmit small bursts of data infrequently. As a lot of IoT devices operate in remote, temporary, or mobile locations, they often rely on off-grid power and because they are generally unattended, they have to be able to rely on backup battery power for some time if grid power stops working. These conditions make the optimization of the IoT devices’ power consumption a must. From PHY to endapplications, the power consumption has to be optimized to increase the device’s autonomy to a minimum of ten years. The economic aspect also has to be considered in IoT, as most applications require the deployment of a large number of nodes, thus making the cost of the modem significant. The ideal modems used for IoT applications should be much less expensive than traditional cellular modems. Both LTE Cat M1 and NB1 technologies were designed and standardized by the 3GPP in Release 13 to address and meet those specific and challenging requirements.
