    Hi All,

    GSMA just published Mobile IoT Deployment Guide.

    NB-IoT and LTE-M are complementary radio access technologies specified by 3GPP in Releases 13 to 17 to address the fast-expanding market for low power wide area (LPWA) connectivity for IoT. To achieve global coverage and wide adoption of LPWA services, mobile network operators must ensure that devices and end-to-end services from various providers will connect to the LPWA systems that have been deployed and that the data transport capability and connection modes are well understood. This document contains non-binding guidelines intended to help mobile operators and solution developers to ensure interoperability and smooth roaming.

    Members of the GSMA 5 have developed the recommendations G IoT Forum based on significant global deployment experience gained since 2017 and practical insight regarding which features have gained market traction. The guide categorizes the myriad of features specified in multiple releases of the 3GPP standard into three distinct groups; (1) minimum baseline features required for interoperability, (2) new and emerging features, and (3) features not widely adopted.
