This page describes IoT transceiver basics. It also mentions IoT transceiver manufacturers or vendors.IoT stands for Internet of Things. It works for M2M applications also.

As we know, transceiver is the short form of transmitter receiver. This device comprises both the transmitting and receiving functionalities. IoT transceiver have been developed to support IoT(Internet of Things) compliant standards. Wireless transceiver sends and receives RF signals over the air. Refer what is RF transceiver and RF transceiver design and development for more information.

Typical IoT wireless technologies include NFC, WLAN, bluetooth, Zigbee, Z-wave, WiMAX, GSM, CDMA, LTE, RFID, LoRa, SIGFOX, EnOcean, Insteon, HomePlug, X10, Lonworks, THREAD etc. The reference links for the same for further study have been mentioned below.
