Ericsson envisions that in the future, everyone and everything that can benefit from being connected will be connected – we call this the Networked Society. This vision will be made possible with the rise of new technologies and business ecosystems. The Internet of Things (IoT) – where everyday objects are connected to the internet – will play an important role in this opportunity for growth, as it has the potential to transform every industry. Connected vineyards is an example of how the IoT is enabling the realization of the Networked Society, and highlight the ways that new technology can be used to benefit business.
The unique scale and security of this technology are particularly important when it comes to expanding applications in other industries, such as transportation, health, construction and manufacturing. These sectors also benefit from devices and objects that are securely connected to an internet network, allowing data to be analyzed with a view to improving day-to-day operations.
Ericsson’s IoT security service can be reused for large-scale IoT, Machine-to-Machine and industry use cases, without any adaptations. We can supply the software to the relevant IoT device and gateway developer community to shorten the time-to-market and increase uptake of the service. Not only does Ericsson provide a global connectivity solution for emerging business models, but we also ensure safe transfer of data and complete security.
