Connect LPWA as the Great Alternative for 2G/3G Sunset

While IoT businesses should be concerned and fast-acting regarding 2G/3G sunset, the situation isn’t wholly without opportunities. Newer 4G, 5G and LPWAN connectivity options will enable a product and service refresh and future-proofing device deployments for the next ten years and beyond.

Our Connect LPWA solution offers connectivity on the two most popular LPWA technologies – NB-IoT and CAT-M1. Both options support low-power features like PSM (Power Saving Mode) and eDRX (extended Discontinuous Reception); users can allocate dynamic and fixed IPs and connect securely through custom APNs, all of which are managed on the Nomad Connectivity Management Platform with a single invoice.

The Connect LPWA solution will help to maximise the lifetime of devices with efficient battery management on an IoT network technology designed for the future.
