Conserving Battery Power

LTE-M devices need to operate independently for long periods. With batteries at the heart of device operations, managing power consumption and data transmission are critical for extending life. It’s also critical to identify which battery management method is best for different applications. This white paper provides details about:

  • What Power Saving Mode (PSM) is, when to use it, and how it works
  • How to set up and enable Power Saving Mode
  • What Extended Discontinuous Reception (eDRX) is, when to use it, and how it works
  • How to set up and enable Extended Discontinuous Reception

Energy Efficiency

Reduce energy consumption with LTE-M, a low-power-wide-area (LPWA) technology that offers low to medium throughput, low latency, and mobile handover – ideal for IoT applications like asset tracking, wearables, point of sale systems, home security, smart cities, and remote monitoring solutions.

Power Saving Mode (PSM)

Extend IoT device battery life by reducing the number of times a device communicates with the network by placing it in a sleep-wake cycle that enables communication only when necessary. The rest of the time it stays in a powered-down state without fully disconnecting from the network.

Extended Discontinuous Reception (eDRX)

Reduce the needless energy an IoT device spends connecting and detaching from the network while online by allowing an extended time interval between when the device is listening and not listening to the network, making it unreachable for several seconds or longer. The result? Significant power savings.
