What’s at stake:
If connectivity – busting data into the cloud – is basic to embedded IoT devices, choosing a resilient and cost-effective network technology is critical. Low-power wide area network (LPWAN) technology options are many, and often no connectivity choice is perfect for everyone. How does a private network built for a local community, such as Amazon Sidewalk, fare against the global connectivity of established cellular standards? We compare the old with new developments on the connectivity market.

Connecting data to the cloud has become the raison d’être of IoT. Following that premise, embedded IoT device developers must be able to answer two questions: Which ubiquitous wireless networks are compatible with your devices? How much will it cost every time your devices send data to the cloud?

This is great stuff. Let’s get started.
