As M2M providers migrate away from 2G, they will have to decide to which technology and network they will migrate

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a growing and exciting ecosystem comprised of an array of different technologies.

Currently, IoT networks are heterogeneous, with short-range, mid-range, and long-range connections. These three levels of IoT connectivity options are determined based on how widespread the connections need to be –immediate, specified geography, or widespread.
