High-bandwidth and high-speed data transfer are required when it comes to M2M applications. In effect, most M2M applications in the automotive and energy sectors require high-bandwidth and high-speed for efficient functioning.
Across the world, Network operators have started deploying the supporting infrastructure in many geographies to provide effective dual-mode M2M applications.
For instance, the deployment of 4G LTE network infrastructure is less expensive compared to that of older cellular technologies. LTE can be deployed in the already existing 2G/3G bands and in new bands. For example, 2.6 GHz or digital dividend spectrum (700/800 MHz) for a greater geographical coverage and improved in-building performance.
Then, one can observe that, 2.6 GHz is the most preferred capacity band in most regions.
