Aeris IoT + LTE-M: Low Cost, High Functionality

LTE-M brings new standards for IoT networking by prioritizing low-cost, low-power, minimal infrastructure, robust reach over massive distances, and scalability advantages for large deployments. Additional benefits gained from LTE-M include:

  1. Low-Cost Modules: Up to 50% reduction in module costs over comparable IoT devices.
  2. Existing Infrastructure: LTE-M can piggyback on existing LTE networks.
  3. Extended Battery Life: Up to 10x improvement in battery longevity with the use of “sleep mode’” or PSM (power-saving mode). Access to optimal coverage (multiple networks, no steering) minimizes battery drain, as does leveraging network location (coarse location) rather than using always-on GPS-based location functionality.
  4. Better Indoor/Underground Penetration: Lower MHz channels provide better penetration.
