With a complex and fragmented array of M2M modules in the market, price continues to be a top concern of enterprises looking to deploy new M2M solutions. To address the growing demand of M2M connectivity with more efficient, low-cost LTE modules, a 3GPP workgroup is developing standards for a new category of M2M devices that will rival the price levels of current GSM modules. In parallel, low power wide area network providers are also in the process of establishing their market presence in key global markets in order to achieve the scale they need to hit their predicted volumes and price levels.
