Ecuador, being a developing country, depends on the search and implementation of new technologies that help improve the productive matrix, this is the case of the agricultural sector, driven by the growth of the Internet market. Internet of Things (IoT) Low-power wide-area network (LPWAN) has allowed its expansion in underdeveloped countries. Sigfox, LoRa, and NB-IoT are the three leading LPWAN technologies that compete for large-scale IoT implementation. This document provides a comparative study of these technologies, focused on the livestock sector. Basic criteria are identified to facilitate decision making when using IoT technology for the development of livestock in rural areas of Guayas province. Through the analytical hierarchical process(AHP), the type of technologies to be implemented is ranked and selected.
