This Guidehouse Insights white paper provides a high-level technical evaluation of several low power wide area (LPWA) networking protocols increasingly considered for AMI systems. It also compares these newer options with the most commonly deployed legacy wireless protocols: unlicensed radio frequency (RF) mesh systems and proprietary broadband point-to-multipoint (P2MP) systems relying on licensed spectrum.
