GSMA Whitepaper – Improving Energy Efficiency for Mobile IoT
This document provides insight into the energy efficiency capabilities of the 5G Mobile IoT technologies LTE-M and NB-IoT. It describes some of the key energy efficiency features available to devices using these technologies, tools and measurement scenarios used to assess performance, network parameters and values that may influence outcomes as well as typical use cases deployed using these technologies. By studying the benefits of specific energy efficiency features of the 5G Mobile IoT technologies (LTE-M and NB-IoT), the document creates a baseline to guide application developers building low energy solutions using these technologies.
The information provided in this white paper is based on input received from members of the 5G IoT Strategy Group who, having deployed 5G Mobile IoT devices across the globe, have shared their knowledge and experience.
