Rogers to launch national LTE-M network to power IoT in Canada

Thursday 18 October 2018 | 18:50 CET | News
Rogers said it plans to launch an LTE Cat M1 network (LTE-M) to help businesses connect and track their assets in real time using products such as logistics tracking, alarm monitoring, and smart metering. LTE-M will connect fixed and mobile low-power IoT devices to carry critical information over long distances, with longer battery life and better network coverage in hard to reach areas. Rogers said its investment in LTE-M will make IoT products more accessible for Canadian businesses to help them innovate and save money and time.
