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 Satellite IoT? Closing Gaps in Global Connectivity
According to some estimates, more than 6,000 satellites orbit the Earth—around 3,000 of which are in LEO. Many of these satellites are owned by the same entities, enabling corporations and government agencies to network them together. While most people are familiar with satellite applications like GPS tracking, this technology has only recently been leveraged for other networking applications like Internet access.
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.
