As you probably know, low-power wide area networks (LPWAN) came about as a result of the need for IoT devices to be smaller and cheaper, while also maintaining battery efficiency and still meeting all form requirements. By providing long-distance, low-power, low-bandwidth communication, LPWANs meet the operating needs of many IoT use cases. It reduces both the cost and the battery consumption of the devices, which extends the life and decreases both the size and cost of the devices and their operational overhead. A big chunk of the future growth in the number of IoT devices is expected to come from low-power wide area networks. By 2025, it is expected that more than 2 billion devices will be connected through LPWAN.
