Great write up on NB-IoT. I am working with a handful of customers and anticipate the question of a LPWAN solution options to come about. Your article was timely.
For my edification, I had a question. It’s stated that NB-IoT will consume less power. I read your comment that a 200 kHz NB-IoT frontend and digitizer offers reduced complexity of analog-to-digital (A/D) and digital-to-analog (D/A) conversion, buffering, and channel estimation.
What is it about the frontend and digitizer that is reducing complexity in the case of NB-IoT? And why do A/D and D/A conversion become simplified with NB-IoT implementations on devices?
Any guidance? I am simply trying to learn. Stay in touch. — Vijay
