Factors to Consider Between LTE Versus RF Mesh Networks
When communities are choosing connectivity platforms, there are several options to consider with many complex yet important considerations. Two of the most popular and effective communications architectures to support smart city applications (example – smart lighting) are LTE cellular and RF mesh. Each architecture has its own unique characteristics, and it is extremely important to understand the risks and benefits associated with each.
We’ll compare the two networks in the areas of security, reliability, affordability, scalability and ease of operations.
