With billions of things connecting in the Internet of Things, the extensive footprint, reliability, security and proven performance of cellular networks is the ideal platform for growth. With Ericsson software enhancements, it just got better.

 

There are already more than 230 million cellular machine-to-machine (M2M) subscriptions for IoT devices, but certain challenges have limited the potential for large-scale adoption across a variety of use cases, namely: the cost of IoT devices, device battery life, and cellular coverage in both remote areas and deep inside buildings.

Ericsson is addressing these challenges with a targeted new suite of software upgrades and ecosystem advances that will accelerate the uptake of IoT for the benefit of both industry and consumers.
