The IoT Showdown and the Opportunity for 4G LTE

Before billions of connections can be realized, there is the question of how the devices will connect

It has been estimated that there will be no less than 50 billion connected devices online by 2020. Before the promise of billions of connected devices sharing information can be realized, there is the question of how, exactly, most of these devices will be connected. Internet of Things (IoT) solution providers and those supplying them are keenly interested in the answer since it will help determine how those solutions and their components are architected. Will specialized networks be built, or will an existing technology, such as Wi-Fi, LAN, satellite or cellular, fill the void?
