Arguably the hottest innovation area in telecoms right now, Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) keeps evolving at a rapid pace, with more or less every month bringing in noteworthy developments. In this series of two Research Notes, Machina Research rounds up the major news on the leading technologies from the past 6 months or so, and shares observations on the state and the expected evolution of the market. The second part of the analysis includes commentary on the developments concerning the cellular/3GPP-based technologies. It also presents the revision of the probability scores of the 4 future scenarios that Machina Research had earlier identified for the future direction of LPWA.
