Description of Startup:
For twenty years, electronics manufacturers have had their eyes on mobile phones and the increase in capacity and flows. Based on the saying ‘Who can do more, can do less’, they worked on improving cellular networks, from GSM to LTE, while thinking about their technologies with a view to developing low-cost and low-energy solutions. However, the resulting hybrid solutions can not satisfy. That’s why the industry needs a low speed network, for the IoT to scale.
