The Internet of Things (IoT) presents a wide and growing range of communications requirements. Certain of these requirements are addressed by systems which are referred to as 'Low Throughput Networks' (LTN) in ETSI documents. The use cases addressed by LTN systems and the LTN systems characteristics are provided in ETSI TR 103 249 [i.1].
LTN systems may be considered to be a subset of Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN), that may include other systems, already existing or developed in the future.
The present document specifies the architecture of LTN systems. It contains requirements and/or recommendations on functional blocks and interfaces that are related to the architecture (i.e. high-level description) of LTN systems.
The present document develops the work done in LTN ISG [i.2] on architecture for LTN systems.
The present document should be read in conjunction with the LTN document [i.1] and related documents, in which details of entities and interfaces are documented.
