Cellular IoT offers several advantages over other connectivity technologies for IoT devices, including:
Cellular IoT uses existing cellular networks, which are ubiquitous, mature, and reliable, providing unmatched global coverage. This means that IoT devices can connect to the internet from almost anywhere in the world, making it an ideal choice for IoT projects that require global coverage.
Simplified global deployment:
Cellular IoT simplifies global deployment by eliminating the need to invest in and develop a separate dedicated network infrastructure for IoT devices. This makes it easier and more cost-effective to deploy IoT devices globally, as they can use the same cellular network as smartphones.
Cellular IoT offers more robust privacy and security with automatic encryption, SIM-based authentication, and utilization of VPN tunnels. This makes it a more secure option than other connectivity technologies like Wi-Fi, which require additional security measures to be enabled.
Flexibility in connectivity:
Cellular IoT devices can use 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G networks, and specialized cellular networks have also been developed specifically for IoT: LTE-M and NB-IoT. This flexibility in connectivity means that IoT devices can use the best available network for their specific needs, whether they require long-range connectivity or high data throughput.
IoT devices require regular maintenance, and cellular IoT allows for remote management of connected devices from anywhere in the world using an online IoT platform. This minimizes downtime and helps reduce costs associated with field service.
Cellular IoT offers several advantages over other connectivity technologies for IoT devices, including global coverage, simplified global deployment, security, flexibility in connectivity, and remote management. By adopting cellular IoT technology, businesses can ensure better connectivity and remain competitive in an industry where connectivity and efficiency are key priorities.
