Nine key trade-offs to optimise IoT connectivity

Due to the distributed nature of IoT, connectivity/networking is perhaps the most critical element of the full IoT stack. It is also the area that requires the greatest consideration of sensitivities and trade-offs regarding the requirements of the use cases, the nature of their deployments, and the capabilities of the technologies being used.

The complexity of the IoT full stack demands a ‘Connected-by-Design’ approach

If we think of the entirety of an Internet of Things use case, the ‘full stack’ that might need to be considered by a developer, it is complex, comprising eight principal layers: sensors and actuators, operating systems and containers, compute and storage, applications and data, business and process integration, security, management, and connectivity. Each needs careful consideration.

5G growth demonstrates cellular IoT market bifurcation

The total number of cellular IoT connections (including NB-IoT and LTE-M) will grow from 1.5 billion at the end of 2022 to 6.1 billion at the end of 2032. However, by 2032 the composition of the market will be rather different from today, being highly dominated by 5G. In this article we examine how 5G will come to dominate the space, and in so doing demonstrate a key trend in IoT connectivity: a bifurcation between high value and low value use cases.

How does IoT work for smart metering?

Drawing smart meters into the Internet of Things (IoT) with internet connectivity is essential to their successful deployment. The combination of smart meters, two-way communications networks and data management systems is known as Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI). AMI has a variety of benefits that include helping utility companies automate device connections, meter readings and customer billing.
