CAT-M + 5G

Karri Kuoppamaki VP, Tech Dev & Strategy

NB-IoT, CAT-M and 5G are complementary. For example, NB-IoT fits Low Power Wide Area networks of widespread sensors and measuring devices that require infrequent communication


  • CAT-M is a richer category of technology that supports basic voice communications so is good for IoT applications that require voice
  • 5G is an even richer category. Though its IoT facilitation aspects are not yet fully defined, it is fair to assume it will enrich many IoT use cases.
