Most of our attention goes toward the higher end of the LTE UE categories – ones designed for moving large amounts of multimedia data from smartphones and tablets concurrently with voice traffic. An equally interesting discussion is taking shape at the low end of the LTE UE categories targeting M2M and IoT devices with power-efficient,… Read More
