Connectivity is the foundation of IoT
IoT supports digital transformation and development of new business models and offerings. By building on existing cellular networks, billions of IoT devices can be connected, helping you stay relevant to your customers and grow new revenues while helping your customers gain a competitive advantage.
IoT is being widely embraced with the number of connected devices growing rapidly but the market landscape remains fragmented. For new business models, connectivity must be flexible and agile, in order to meet the network performance required for a wide variety of evolving IoT use cases, applications, and device types.
Support is also needed to effectively manage, scale and customize the connectivity for the massive numbers of devices and use cases. By building on the existing cellular network infrastructure, you can generate diverse IoT business opportunities beyond mobile broadband and bring them to the market quickly.
Cellular technologies have been designed for reliability, security and scalability. With their unique combination of rich functionality and performance, they provide a strong foundation for IoT.
Through software upgrades, existing cellular networks provide a base for unmatched IoT coverage and fast time-to-market. They can also support connectivity needs of smart products and services that are made available globally.
Massive IoT is about high numbers of low cost devices.
Critical IoT is focused on high reliability and availability.
