We are living in a fast-paced developing technological world. This tendency is intensely related to computer science. The increasing number of smart devices give a reason for the telecommunications sector to follow their developmental rhythm. A few years from now probably there will rarely be any electronic devices that are not going to be able to connect to the internet in some way. These statements equally represent devices in everyday life, in industry and in agricultural sector, as well. In order to satisfy the increasing network demand, newer and newer network technologies are developed. The greatest potential is offered by IoT (Internet of Things). This is the reason we need to put a huge emphasis on continuously analysing the IoT solutions.

Hence, I chose to have my thesis work in this domain. I will create create a traffic generator, with which diverse networks performance and stability is measurable. Since the latest IoT access technologies are only accessible in a few places, Cat-M1 is considerably little discussed.. The main focus in my thesis is on the Cat-M1 network technology.

In the first part of my diploma work I will introduce the main rivals of the chosen Cat-M1 network, in order to give a better transparency of the IoT LPWA (Lower Power Wide Area) technology’s market supply. Moreover, I wanted to introduce the correspondent environment that is needed to create a traffic generator and to show what functions are there to endow it.

Henceforward, I would like to acquaint the construction and functions as well as the various types on analysis possibilities that are operated by the traffic generator discussed in my thesis work. Finally, through active networking analysation I will show its behavior. From the analysis and several test results I will give an estimation of the Cat-M1 networking performance and stability.
