Technical Education Webinar Series
Title: The Smart Way to Evaluate and Optimize Low Power IoT Designs
Date: January 26, 2017
Time: 8am PT/ 11am ET
Sponsored by: Rohde & Schwarz
Presented by: Fernando Schmitt, Product Manager, Rohde & Schwarz Munich and Joerg Koepp, Market Segment Manager, Rohde & Schwarz Munich
Battery life of 10+ years is a key requirement for many Internet of Things (IoT) applications. 3GPP Release 12 and later releases added LTE features such as eMTC, NB-IoT, eDRX and power-saving mode (PSM) to meet this important requirement. In order to select the most appropriate feature(s) and parameters, it is essential to understand the impact of the different features on power consumption and overall application performance such as latency. In this webinar, we will explain the different features for low-power IoT designs and explore the value of end-to-end testing under real-life network conditions based on a unique test solution that allows very precise power and current measurements.
Attendees will learn:
- How eDRX and PSM work and their impact on power consumption and latency
- How coverage enhancements affect power consumption
- Importance of end-to-end application testing
- The value of a unique test solution for precise power measurements correlated with network state information
