Tele2 IoT launches a new LTE-M network, the technology specifically designed for the Internet of Things (IoT).
Tele2 is pleased to announce the launch of its new LTE-M network. LTE-M is a technology that greatly enhances Tele2’s offering in managed IoT connectivity, with a dedicated radio access technology designed for massive IoT applications.
As a cellular LPWA (low-power, wide area) technology, LTE-M brings seamless connectivity, supports lower cost devices and longer battery life and enables many new IoT use cases. LTE-M also supports existing IoT use cases previously based on 2G or 3G, making it a very versatile technology.
Cyril Deschanel, Managing Director of Tele2 IoT Business Unit, says:
“We are very excited to add LTE-M to the Tele2 IoT connectivity offering. LTE-M is truly a pivotal technology for IoT, and will be a key enabler for the massive IoT future.”
Tele2’s IoT customers currently enjoy a global connectivity reach with nearly 500 networks in more than 180 countries. LTE-M is initially launched in Tele2’s Swedish network, with an ongoing roaming rollout focusing on Europe and the US.
