Mobile IoT, also known as Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) in licensed spectrum, presents a huge opportunity for the mobile and IoT industries.  Machina Research estimate that by 2025, LPWA connections will grow to over 3 billion and 56% of these connections are forecast to be connected via licensed spectrum technologies.

The 6th Mobile IoT Summit will focus on the rapid growth and momentum behind both NB-IoT and LTE-M technologies. Since the beginning of 2017 there have been 27 worldwide Mobile IoT deployments, and this number is growing exponentially in 2018.

Hear from leading mobile operators and industry players about:

  • The commercial availability of Mobile IoT on a worldwide scale
  • Real-world deployments of Mobile IoT networks and the growth of the wider ecosystem
  • Recent implementations and use cases of Mobile IoT technologies, including NB-IoT and LTE-M

This event is free to attend, but advance registration is required. Registration will open at 13:00, followed by lunch and interactive demonstration viewing.

A networking drinks reception follows the summit, from 17:30 – 18:30.
