For most of the past decade, nascent smart city Internet of Things (IoT) development has been based on traditional Information Technologies and retrofitting existing wireless protocols. The next ten years will see enormous intelligent city IoT growth as smart devices, sensors, secure cloud services and Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWANs) have created the required elements for a smart city platform. City residents are driving smart city solutions as they demand more efficient, less costly services and quality of life enhancements such as electric vehicle and bike-friendly transportation systems, easier parking and pollution-monitored environments.

In this report we focus on how LPWAN technologies have disrupted this landscape and the market implications. The LPWAN ecosystem is experiencing exponential growth with several standards initiatives and nation-wide rollouts. Our research with hundreds of utilities and cities over the past decade uncovers new market opportunities as governments and multi-national IoT contractors aggressively develop their smart city strategies.

LPWAN technologies such as LoRa, SigFox, RPMA and Weightless-P have blind-sided existing wireless technologies with their multi-kilometer transmission range, 10 year battery lifetimes and integrated cloud stacks. A distinct advantage of LPWANs is that end node complexity is off loaded to the cloud, simplifying installation, application development and system integration.

By 2025, there will be 1.5 billion connected wireless sensors, actuators and trackers for smart cities and utilities. LPWANS will be the fastest growing wireless technology and will displace existing technologies for many applications as well as enabling another 145 million smart city/metering IoT connected devices that would not likely exist without LPWAN solutions.

This report covers the LPWAN market opportunity for over 20 applications across five target markets, evaluate 60 companies with LPWAN-related products and services, present the results of our 2016 enterprise IoT survey, and show the findings from several networking tests and simulations to illustrate the capabilities of LPWAN technologies.
