What is eMTC (Enhanced machine-type communication)?

eMTC is the Enhanced Machine Type Communication. It is a sort of LTE-M network introduced by 3GPP in the Release 13 specification. It upholds half-duplex frequency division duplex (HD-FDD), frequency division duplex (FDD), and time division duplex (TDD) tasks. eMTC upholds IoT through lower device complexity and gives broadened coverage, utilizing a versatile carrier’s existing LTE base stations. eMTC upholds low intricacy IoT devices, which use the current LTE network infrastructure. eMTC is utilized in IoT devices that need a higher information rate than that assisted by NB-IoT. eMTC has a diminished bandwidth contrasted with LTE however has an broadened coverage.
