MulteFire Alliance members have been around the world and back since the completion of the Release 1.0 specification in January. From the Open Day in Tokyo, to Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, we have been busy sharing how MulteFire will enable new business models and innovation for vertical markets like private and industrial IoT. In its latest report, Harbor Research forecasts that private IoT with LTE and MulteFire solutions could reach $31 billion by 2020.

MulteFire delivers key advantages for industrial and private IoT in terms of capacity, coverage, mobility and reliability, thanks to its LTE-based design for handling interference from multiple users. It can be deployed as a traditional access mode by a single network operator – an exciting development for private, enterprise and industrial IoT networks. We shared some of these advantages in a presentation at our Business Opportunities event at MWC.

The Release 1.0 specification supports MulteFire deployments for demanding IoT applications today, and the future Release 1.1 will add additional IoT optimizations. We invite you to learn more about how MulteFire will play in the IoT ecosystem by attending one of the upcoming conferences where the Alliance will be presenting and exhibiting.
