Synopsis:

As adoption for Internet of Things solutions accelerates worldwide, Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) technologies are enabling unique smart building applications as well as new enterprise IoT services opportunities.

LPWAN technologies are disrupting existing wireless sensing and M2M technologies with $10 LPWAN radios that are capable of ten-mile ranges with 10-year battery lifetimes. But the distinct advantage of LPWANs over incumbent wireless technologies is that end node complexity is off loaded to the cloud, simplifying installation, maintenance, application development and system integration.

Ten years ago when ON World published its first report on smart building wireless sensor networks, WSN was a disruptor of wired sensor networks and from this came mesh standards such as ZigBee, Thread and Bluetooth Smart Mesh. While these technologies are not likely to be replaced for the majority of traditional smart building applications, they are vulnerable to being displaced by LPWANs.

Wireless mesh challenges include long product development cycles, expensive gateways, complex network management and technologies that were created before the cloud was mature enough to support today’s IoT business models.

ON World’s April 2016 survey with 100 IoT professionals found that 59% are researching, pilot testing or developing LPWAN solutions. Two in five are developing new LPWAN solutions that cannot be done with other wireless technologies and one third are targeting existing applications that use other wireless technologies.

LPWAN solutions and network deployments are growing rapidly. Standards developments have hundreds of participating companies in initiatives and industry groups such as the LoRa Alliance, SigFox Partner Network, Weightless SIG, ETSI LTN, 3GPP NB-IoT and GSMA’s Mobile IoT. 

By 2025, there will be nearly 1 billion connected wireless sensors, asset trackers and other smart devices for building automation and enterprise IoT solutions. LPWAN will be the fastest growing wireless technology and will make up the majority of new applications and services over the next decade.

In this report, we analyze and forecast the LPWAN market opportunity for 7 enterprise IoT application areas across ten market segments, evaluate 60+ companies with LPWAN-related products and services, present the results of our Q1 2016 survey, and show the findings from several network tests to illustrate the capabilities of LPWAN technologies.
