What Is IoT Connectivity: A Comparison Guide
Connectivity is a critical component of the Internet of Things. IoT devices rely on networks to communicate with gateways, applications, servers, routers, and other IoT devices. This communication—transmitting and receiving data—enables IoT devices to perform the functions they were designed for.
What Is Cellular IoT? Simple, Global Device Connectivity
Cellular IoT uses cellular networks to connect physical devices to the Internet. The same cell towers that provide service to your smartphone can connect heavy machinery, security systems, hospital equipment, asset tracking systems, and billions of other devices to the internet. Cellular connectivity enables these devices to transmit and receive data, so end users can remotely monitor, analyze, and control them.
Borderless opportunity: scaling IoT connectivity for global use
IoT networks only develop their full potential when scaled for global use. However, some measures must be put in place to enable successful and adequate IoT scaling. The Internet of Things is growing steadily – as the number of networked devices continues to grow, the amount of applications and data processed increases exponentially. Such significant growth naturally calls for scalability – now one of the essential elements of any competitive IoT device solution.
