Editor’s note: This originally appeared on Analyse Asia, a weekly podcast hosted by Bernard Leong, dedicated to dissecting the pulse of business, technology, and media in Asia. The podcast features guests from Asia’s vibrant tech community.

Charles Anderson from Charles Reed Anderson & Associates joined us in a conversation on lower power wide area networks aka WANs in Asia Pacific and its significance to smart cities & Internet of things. Charles dissects the three major players: NB-IoT, LoRA & SigFox and their backers & operators behind the scenes and explained the critical factors that will enable this technology to go mainstream. We also discussed how low power WANs will be adopted by the telcos within the Asia Pacific region.
