To recapitulate, the IoT application use cases will define which communication enabler fits best based on multiple parameters like existing telecom networks (with NB-IOT and LTE-M), standalone networks (LoRa and SigFox), static and/or mobility requirements, latency, data transmission rate, power consumption, battery life, components like gateways, controllers and finally the cost. As UAE already has the NB-IoT communication network, most of the IoT projects in UAE will be based on NB-IoT LPWAN as it will speed up deployments and more cost-effective in terms of capex and low operational cost. With flexible deployment as well as the possibility to implement OTA (over-the-air) firmware upgrades, many telecommunication operators across the globe has deployed NB-IoT and LTE-M. According to a new study conducted by Grand View Research, Inc the narrowband-IoT market size is expected to reach USD 6,020 million by 2025, registering a CAGR of 34.9% from 2019 to 2025. NB-IoT is booming.
