IoT Device Security: Comparing Cellular, LoRa and WiFi
General advantages of cellular connectivity network coverage is available almost everywhere the device works immediately at the customer site no additional infrastructure and integration required low power technologies for pro-longed battery life (LTE-M/NB-IoT) supports low and high transmission bandwidth in up- and downlink In this post, we will review the most-used IoT connectivity options – WiFi, LoRaWAN and Cellular – and compare them from a security perspective.
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.
The Future of Connectivity: How IoT Is Evolving
In recent decades, connectivity has been transforming daily life and business operations in nearly every sector. Factories, hospitals, retail stores, media companies, farms, warehouses, schools, vehicles, and homes have increasingly relied on connected devices to transmit, display, and use information collected by sensors.
