Machines, in a way, are similar.
Maybe the price factor is not as important to them as it is to people, but high quality is a must. Without appropriate quality of service (QoS), data transmission can’t be established and the whole device system can collapse. For example, a battery can get lost or rebooting can take too long, resulting in loss of connection and leading to a serious device or process malfunction.
In the energy sector, devices are spread out over large geographical areas making service trips very costly. Metering devices also are highly sensitive to service disruption resulting from loss of connectivity.
Quality also differs depending on the standard and type of connectivity used by customers. In many verticals, mobile connectivity still outmatches new wireless standards (LoRa, SIGFOX, etc.) because it delivers the highest quality for IoT services.
