GSMA

Long Term Evolution for Machines (LTE-M), also known as licensed low power wide area (LPWA), is a new cellular radio access technology specified by 3GPP in Release 13 to address the fast-expanding market for low power wide area connectivity. To achieve global coverage and wide adoption of LTE-M services, MNOs (mobile network operators) must ensure that devices and end-to-end services from various providers will connect to the LTE-M systems that have been deployed, and that the data transport capability and connection modes are well understood.

This updated document contains non-binding guidelines designed to help MNOs deploying LTE-M networks and devices globally to ensure interoperability and smooth roaming. It identifies a minimum set of key features, details key configurations and considerations for deployments in 2018. The recommendations have been developed by the members of the GSMA LTE-M Task Force, based on the survey inputs provided to the GSMA by ten MNOs who are deploying LTE-M networks in North America, Canada, Latin America, Europe and parts of Asia.
