Internet of Things in 3GPP (EC-GSM, LTE-M, NB-IoT) Session

Internet of Things in 3GPP (EC-GSM, LTE-M, NB-IoT) session is a technical deep-dive into available connectivity solutions within 3GPP. We will commence with a review on the capabilities of the Extended Coverage-GSM-IoT (EC-GSM-IoT), and then deal in details with the emerging NB-IoT and eMTC solutions. We will discuss pros and cons of each, and try to understand how each technology will be used over the coming years.

Instructed by: Prof. Mischa Dohler
