What is IoT and how is it changing buisiness processes?

The Internet of things (IoT) describes the network of physical objects—a.k.a. “things”—that are embedded with sensors, software, and other technologies for the purpose of connecting and exchanging data with other devices and systems over the internet. 

Think real-time analytics, machine learning and embedded systems.  Traditional fields of embedded systems, wireless sensor networks, control systems, automation and others all contribute to enabling the Internet of things.

In more general terms, the Internet of Things (IoT) is a place where every day physical objects are connected to the Internet and can identify themselves to other devices. These objects can be cars, thermostats, electronic appliances, industrial applications, & even animals with biochip responder to automate the milking process.  So far, IoT has been most closely associated with machine-to-machine (M2M) communication (learning) in manufacturing, power, oil and gas utilities. Products built with M2M communication capabilities are often referred to as being smart

With the rapid growth of the IoT market and accelerated evolution, wireless networks have become essential for successful implementations. It is important when deciding on the network to understand the mixture of sensors being used and location. Sensors can be remote where coverage is difficult, battery-operated, number of devices, traffic interference. human intervention, etc. The combination of factors is unlimited and without reliable communication, your solution will lose all integrity.

Check-It has experience with essentially every type of communication network available.  Including Satellite, LTE, LoraWan, Zigbee, Z-Wave, EnOcean, Bluetooth, RFID as well as many different wired options.  Our experience and skills ensure our clients will always have reliable communication, within any industry solution, while providing up to the second information.
