5G Solutions: MTC - eMTC

The communication type device-MTC or devices communication (M2M) allows direct connection between electronical equipment and phones along with central server or MTC application servers. eMTC, also called LTE-M or LTE-MTC, is a low power technology (LPWA). Using LTE base stations, it operates Internet of Things through less complexity of the device and ensuring increased coverage. eMTC is a natural extension of LTE standard.

Target audience

The course is intended for less experienced engineers in telecom and also non-technical staff, who would like to learn about technologies and solutions appearing currently on the market, and about the further paths of development.
