Internet of things (IoT) changes significantly the requirements for connectivity, mainly with regards to long battery life, low device cost, low deployment cost, extended coverage and support for a massive number of devices. Driven from these requirements, several different cellular and non-cellular low power wide area network (LPWAN) solutions are emerging and competing for IoT business and the overall connectivity market. Motivated by this, in this thesis, we review and compare the pros and the cons for 2 specific LPWANs,LoraWan and Narrowband IoT, as well as, we discuss their suitability for different IoT applications. Finally, we will simulate the LoraWan with the help of Matlab platform and compare it to a an existing simulation of Narrowband IoT,to see the differences.
