I am looking for an optimal LPWAN solution for my project. Everywhere we talk about NB-Iot and Cat M1. But what about EC-GSM-Iot? Do your modules support this technology? I have heard that the networks in Germany support this technology. Is that right? You don't find so much on the Internet about this third cellular LPWAN.
I would be very happy about help.
At today thsi technology is not supported in any of our modules
Somewhere over the rainbow!!! Looking for the Oz Land!!!
Thank you very much for the quick answer. Do you know if there is a module planned? Planning horizon would be one year.
As 2G networks are being shut down in many regions I wouldn't expect a new nodule with this technology in a near future. As you have mentioned LTE-M and NB-IoT are the alternatives.
One of the peeves I have about LPWAN hardware is that some are restricted to run on their supported networks only. Therefore you cannot move from one operator to another since the hardware is not 'certified' to run on the network.
This suggests that it's not a common technology. Maybe it will not change.
