Kurzfassung englisch:
The plethora of available IoT connectivity technologies makes selection of the most suitable and affordable offering challenging for IoT service providers. This is a typical problem when considering deployments over Low-Power Wide-Area Networks (LPWAN). Each technology has different implications as to how edge, fog, and cloud resources can be utilized to provide an end-to-end service. The connectivity decision directly affects the initial investment, operating expenditure, level of control desired over the underlying infrastructure, and the resulting managerial overhead. This article provides a generic cost model and framework to assist IoT service providers towards cost-aware LPWAN technology selection and dimensioning decisions. Our framework captures key cost factors and considers both network and compute infrastructure elements. Considering a monitoring IoT application as a reference, we analyze various deployment strategies enabled by two major IoT connectivity technologies, namely LoRaWAN and NB-IoT, quantifying their associated costs and distilling general deployment guidelines.
