LoRaWAN & NB-IoT Complementary Deployment: City of Kyiv Use Case

In this talk, we will explain how LoRaWAN and Cellular IoT (LTE-M/NB-IoT) complement each other to build horizontal IoT Platforms that can be used in a variety of use cases.

IoT use cases have wide requirements in terms of throughput, cost and battery lifetime, and no single radio access technology can address them completely. We will show how to address the need for a multi-technology LPWAN platform and present the example use case of the City of Kiev, which is already deploying this multi-technology network for the city and its own enterprise customers.

  • Key Learning / Audience Takeaway Points:
    • How LoRaWAN and Cellular IoT complement each other
    • Key enterprise use cases leveraging multi-technology platforms
