TCCA white paper: Moving on from narrowband?

As next generation networks (such as 4G, 5G, LoRa and Sigfox) become more widespread in Europe, there is increasing interest from its utilities sector in the features in the standards that are targeted at IoT telemetry-type applications.

New bearers can open up exciting new applications that cannot be served by today’s narrowband bearers. For 5G, ultra-reliable and low latency communications (URLLC), network slicing and support for large densities of connected devices are some of the attractions. A new white paper from The Critical Communications Association’s (TCCA) and its SCADA, Smartgrid and IoT Working Group looks at the considerations for utilities looking to transition from narrowband to next-generation bearers.

The paper recommends the top 10 topics that should be taken into account by European utilities planning to migrate their machine-to-machine (M2M) communications to a new bearer or bearers. The considerations are ranked in order of importance and reflect a utility sector view, as well as a European perspective in terms of the availability and reliability of communications infrastructure.
