By 2020, ABI Research predicts that there will be more than 45 billion connected devices worldwide. More than half of these devices will incorporate multiple standards in the same device, such as Wi-Fi, 802.15.4g, GNSS and cellular communications.
This webinar will address the question: How To Design a LTE-Based M2M Asset Tracker SoC?
Mobile M2M devices will require cellular communications such as LTE MTC Cat-1, Cat-0 and the upcoming narrow-band Cat-M, NB-IoT and LPWAN as well as positioning technologies to track them. More than half of cellular enabled M2M devices will also integrate either GNSS (GPS) or LTE-OTDOA or a combination of both to track devices indoor an outdoor.
How can system designers integrate, quickly and reliably, LTE MTC, WiFi, GNSS and LTE-OTDOA on an SoC and keep power and area to a minimum ?
Join CEVA, Galileo and Nestwave experts to hear about:
- Overview and market trends in connectivity and positioning for IoT and M2M.
- Introduction to the technology required to track assets, outdoor, using Cellular M2M standards such as LTE MTC (Cat-1, Cat-0, Cat-M) together with multiple Satellite based Navigation systems and indoor, using WiFi 802.11n together with LTE-OTDA. Combined use cases will also be reviewed.
- How to implement a flexible asset tracker SoC that will work both indoor and outdoor and be flexible for future standards evolution and proprietary improvements.
Communication and systems engineers targeting multimode applications requiring emerging cellular protocols such as LTE MTC Cat-1, Cat-0 or Cat-M, and flexible WiFi for IoT combined with positioning standards such as GNSS and LTE-OTDOA.

Asset Tracker Application
Some application, such as wearable, will only require a battery life of a few days, but others such as asset trackers will demand a battery life of 5-10 years. For system designers, addressing wearable related challenges will be completely different than designing an asset tracker. As of today, some wearable devices are considered as fashionable gadget, the end user accepting to pay sometimes more than for a mainstream smartphone even if the battery life is only a day or so.
At the other side of the scope, if you define asset tracker system specification, you may end up to count every cent as you need to meet very stringent cost requirement and the battery life is expected to last several year instead of days. It’s clear that one wireless communication standard can’t fit the demand coming from so different applications. But how selecting the right wireless standard in respect with your system needs?
CEVA’s expert will emphasize on the importance of the processor architecture to efficiently enable multimode connectivity solutions. Finally, they will describe how implementing actual solutions for various IoT and M2M use cases using the latest communication DSP.
