A new class of networks is appearing that offers huge potential for public safety, transport, utilities and rural broadband. The 450 MHz spectrum, which was previously used for 2G and 3G cellular and voice calls, is becoming available for new uses as the cellular carriers move away from those frequencies. The 450 MHz spectrum will support LTE services, so it offers great potential for internet of things (IoT) and machine to machine (M2M) applications.
