The Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to revolutionize the way we interact with everything. IoT has the ability to link our cell phones to our vehicles, appliances, heating and cooling systems, transportation, city architecture and more. By 2020, there will be at least four devices connected to IOT for every human on earth.Connecting to the world from the inside out, IoT will grant limitless remote opportunities for everything from adjusting temperature on our refrigerators, to tracking packages and livestock, providing faster security and surveillance and activating smart grids for entire cities. No matter the personal use or industry, IoT offers smart change. But with most great technological advancements, there are great risks to safety and security that must be addressed. The components needed to connect devices are not all created equal.
IoT modules – small computing devices that allow physical objects to connect to wireless networks – are among the most crucial components of any IoT deployment. These essential building blocks continually sense, collect, store, and transmit data. Ensuring that modules function properly, securely and consistently is of paramount importance in having a successful IoT deployment. With so many modules on the market, it is crucial to understand security risks, module sustainability, and deployment reach to ensure you choose the right module and supplier for your next project.
