Cellular preparing to battle proprietary tech for the IoT

The Internet of Things is emerging as an important market from MSOs like Comcast, AT&T and Verizon. As various companies plot strategies to take advantage of IoT, a veritable alphabet soup of different proprietary IoT connectivity solutions like Sigfox and Ingenu are competing for share.

Without an arduous standards process standing in their way, those proprietary technologies have jumped out to an early lead of cellular IoT variants like LTE Cat 1 and LTE Cat M. But the time is coming soon when those cellular technologies will be able to fully join the fray, making for plenty of connectivity options for the many applications propelled forward by the IoT.
