With LTE-M, IoT gets its own radio access technology, a technology designed for massive IoT applications.  As a cellular LPWA (Low Power Wide Area) technology, LTE-M brings seamless connectivity at a low cost and with a long battery life, enabling IoT use cases that were previously not financially feasible. 

LTE-M supports both existing use cases previously based on 2G or 3G,while also enablingcompletely new ones. Thanks to substantial improvement in power saving, as well as support for lower cost devices at improved coverage, it completely changes the business case,enabling awiderange of newIoTuse cases.
