Comp sci world shock: Bonn boffin proposes P≠NP proof, preps for prestige, plump prize


Re: Well the paper has proved one thing at least

I'd be amazed if there's anyone visiting the site that isn't a big nerd.

We wanna give IoT folk kilobit data rates, beam NB-IoT telcos



The "Wide Area" they're talking about when they talk about LPWA (which emcompasses NB-IoT, LoRa, Sigfox, and far too many more...) usually means a hell of a lot farther than the 300-ish meters that ULE can provide. These techs can do low power (but high latency) transmissions over about 10km.

NB-IoT will be on the licensed spectrum, and there's been noises that LoRa will soon be available on licensed bands too,

Door bells and security cameras can be left to Zigbee, 802.11ah, and those. LPWAs cover a wholely different set of use cases.
