Radio Technologies for IoT and Beyond
IoT carries requirements for range and battery life while relaxing the constraints on data rates and at times, bi-directionality. There's a wide range of available standards for IoT designers: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, Thread, Z-Wave, Sigfox, LoRa, NFC and many others. In addition, WiGig and 5G are exploiting millimeter wave spectrum at 30 and 60 GHz. Which radios are 'winning' and how can they be integrated with enterprise networks? How should network managers react to internal customers with IoT needs?
