NB-IOT Invades LoRa Technology and Challenges the IoT Market

[China Instrument Network Instrument Industry] In the near future, there is too much information about the Internet of Things. On the one hand, operators, securities companies, telecommunications companies, and various alliances have made great strides in advancing and preaching. It sounds like there is finally a share of power to subvert the beauty of the industry. On the one hand, the water and gas industry talks about the sounds and puzzles of the application of concrete scenes, and waits for the other boots to fall to the ground in order to be practical and ... let go. During the period, whether it was technology that changed the industry or the pattern of changing interests, Xiao Bian did not say well, and in the next year and a half, LoRa and NB-IoT did not have a time scale of scale to occupy the commanding heights of the market. Opportunities and challenges are not the same!

- Even if NB is used on a scale, LoRa has its own space and continuous market - LoRa is the first layout, it is difficult to change the trend of NB - Why - Because it is Huawei, it is inevitable NB

- Now from the gas company's perspective, LoRa or NB which can solve the actual problems of the gas company and meet the actual needs, which will become the gas company's first choice, is the donkey is always pulled out by the horse, just like the current smart home The industry's ZigBee and Z-Wave, basically the same two low-power, short-distance transmission, can only allow users to practice. At present, no choice but to use LoRa, so say that NB must quickly pull out yo!

Today, the “LoRa Scale Opportunities and Challenges” shared by Xiaobian came from Zhao Mingfei, general manager of Mensi Technology. He said that during the three years of LoRa's development, he became a fat man from a thin person. He was able to do LPWAN overall solutions from the LoRa module. He was the first company to bring LoRa to the metering industry in large scale, and he was also one of the earliest LoRa alliances. member.

Zhao Mingfei: Talking about this topic, it was for me to go back to November of 2015. At the time, Mensi Technology and several domestic manufacturers mainly engaged in LoRaWAN gathered together in Amsterdam because of the LoRa Alliance meeting. Most people expressed their opinions. Concern about the arrival of NB-IOT. The prevailing view is that 2016 will be a crucial year for both LoRa and LPWAN: NB-IOT will inevitably come with strong support from operators. This will be a new challenge for LoRa. How to be a real NB-IOT? Excavating and deploying LPWAN applications before commercial use, and implementing the de facto leading technology of LPWAN in a “pitfall” manner is a problem that LoRaWAN companies need to face together in 2016.

In fact, the arrival of NB-IOT has further stimulated and accelerated the understanding of the Internet of Things industry for LPWAN, and more demand has been stimulated. However, from the perspective of an IoT communication technology provider, it is the technology and business model that determine market share. From these two perspectives, LoRa faces tremendous opportunities and challenges.

From the business model point of view, the market seems to me to be complementary to the applicable market of NB-IOT and LoRa. The NB-IOT uses operators to uniformly deploy a nationwide network for fee-based operations, and LoRa adopts alliances. Forms help customers build their own network to achieve customer business operations.

There are two application categories from the market perspective, distributed applications and industry applications.

Decentralized applications refer to the fact that users of end products are dispersed or geographical distribution of products is dispersed or products have frequent moving attributes. The demand for such applications on the LPWAN is mainly a wider range of network coverage to address the user's regional distribution and mobility requirements for the network. This category of products focuses on consumer electronics and location-based applications.

Industry application means that a single customer has a local network deployment condition in a small area, and there is a sufficient number of terminals that can afford the network construction cost in a local area. The LPWAN protocol details are often adjusted based on their application requirements. There is a higher demand for data security.

From the perspective of market demand, NB-IOT can't meet the requirements for protocol details modification by operators laying wide area networks. Its data security and LAN cannot be compared, so it is difficult to solve the application requirements of the industry and is more suitable for decentralized applications.

In contrast, the operating modes of LoRa and LoRaWAN are more flexible, and LPWAN communication technology providers represented by Mensil Technology can solve the need for detailed adjustment of industry customer agreements, and can quickly help customers build LANs at low cost to realize business operations. Being able to adapt to dispersive application requirements can also meet the needs of industry applications.

From a technical point of view, Mensi Technology is one of the earliest companies engaged in the application of LoRa technology in China and has more than three years experience in the application of Internet of Things. From the experience of Mensi science and technology, it takes almost one year for an application to go from demand to volume production.

The mass production of NB-IOT chips will take at least 2 years from the mass production of the chips to the laying of networks to large-scale commercial use by 2017. From the perspective of tariffs, the number of users in the initial period is small, and the cost of network operations is high. The tariffs are bound to be high, and high fees will in turn affect the growth of the number of users.

Compared with NB-IOT, LoRa has been deeply cultivating in the market for more than three years, with clear performance parameters, cost, deployment cycle, and other information. The strong attack of NB-IOT has stimulated users' high enthusiasm for LPWAN and stimulated more demand for LPWAN applications. This will give LoRa a chance to develop rapidly when NB-IOT cannot achieve rapid growth in the number of users in the short term.

At the same time, how can we tap more LoRa-based applications in the short term and quickly realize the high growth of LoRa applications and the number of nodes is the challenge that LoRa needs to face.
