The Internet of Things
What is the Internet of Things?
The Internet of Things refers to physical devices being connected to and accessed through the internet. New devices are connecting each day with the help of rapid advancements in machine-to-machine (M2M) communication technology. It is predicted that 27 billion devices will be connected by 2024. We make management of all these devices easy.
The explosion of connected devices calls for robust networks and management to enable businesses to benefit from the many IoT opportunities involved. At the heart of IoT solutions is the drive to make work and life easier and safer. The rise of automated ‘intelligent’ devices within automotive and healthcare industries make the secure and reliable management of these devices critical especially if they are to scale in operation.
Connected Car, Home, City, Life and Industry
Driven by the consumer push for seamless connectivity, connected car solutions include in-vehicle telematics that can save consumers money on insurance and software over-the-air updates that can replace traditional maintenance work providing greater efficiency. Connected homes allow for automating functionalities such as security, heating and lighting which extends to improving cities and infrastructure with smart metering and smart water management. Connected life solutions such as those within mHealth are coming to market rapidly as consumers begin to adopt wearables at the same time medical professionals are discovering the benefits of tools such as smart glasses and of remote patient monitoring which can improve health and reduce costs.
