The LTE-M network has been specially developed for Internet of Things applications and is based on the reliable and secure 4G networks of the providers. The coverage of LTE M is stronger than a 2G network and has the advantage of a deeper penetration rate, which means that the coverage in mainly buildings is many times better.
LTE M applications
LTE-M is suitable for applications where there will be limited data traffic. For example, camera applications are not suitable for LTE-M, but remote management of machines and installations is ideally suited with LTE-M. A major advantage of LTE-M is the good permeability in urban areas, deep in buildings in basements or below ground level.
