According to IHS estimates, the Smart Home market is expected to grow at CAGR of 26% to reach 75.4 billion devices by 2025. LPWA IoT solutions are low cost, simple, and effective approach to solving automation and security in homes. This paper will describe how Low Power Wide Area Networking using LoRa gateways and endpoints can allow operators to support reliable connectivity for IoT solutions while minimizing capital and operational support costs. The paper will also outline unique use cases for LoRa and IoT that will provide innovative new revenue opportunities for cable operators. A survey of LPWA technologies in this paper will show that LoRa is the leading choice. Since Cable operators are already in the homes and have the relationship with the customers, they are in a unique position to offer automation and security solutions and win a large portion of the Smart Home market.
