ABI Research - Cellular IoT will account for 75% of the installed base of asset trackers in 2023


LTE-M will be more successful in IoT applications that require more continuous tracking capabilities with a low-latency threshold, whereas NB-IoT will address use cases that require periodic tracking of assets across multiple regions due to its energy efficiency and lower cost, said ABI Research.  

Cellular low-power wide-area (LPWA) networks running on LTE-M and NB-IoT technologies will account for three-quarters of the installed base of asset trackers in 2023, according to new research.

These will displace non-cellular LPWA solutions, mostly based on LoRa and Sigfox, as the principle connectivity technologies in asset tracking during the next five years.
