More than only smart speakers and lighting connected by the Internet of Things (IoT). According to projections, within the next few years, the total number of business IoT connections is expected to surpass the number of consumer connections. The automotive, industrial, utility, and transportation industries will lead cellular business IoT connections.
Cellular IoT connections use the same 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G networks as mobile phones. On the other hand, IoT devices make use of M2M SIM cards and different sorts of connectivity that specifically built for commercial and industrial purposes.
Advantages of Cellular IoT for Industry
Because cellular IoT relies on existing mobile networks, there is already a large coverage area in place. It provides the ability to manage device deployments across several cities and countries. It was critical for any IoT project that relies on data access, particularly asset tracking, transportation, and other global enterprise applications.
M2M SIM cards, unlike consumer SIMs, can roam across carriers with steered or non-steered open roaming capabilities. The device will automatically connect to the network with the strongest signal in the area if the user uses a non-steered SIM card. It guarantees that connectivity is always available and that downtime, kept to a minimum.
Cellular IoT connections are divided into numerous subcategories (see below), from which users can choose the one that best suits their data transmission requirements. If their gadgets don't carry significant data loads (like video) or demand continual connectivity and rapid reaction time, there's no need to pay for the most expensive choice.
An IoT platform can be helpful to manage cellular IoT devices remotely, interconnecting, disconnect, and troubleshoot devices from anywhere. Users can also monitor device downtime, usage, and any other relevant metrics with the correct IoT platform, allowing them to get the most out of their IoT project.
However, to protect against unauthorized access, any IoT application requires security measures. It's especially true for devices that track sensitive data, such as healthcare equipment, or those that are vulnerable to malicious acts, such as smart city technologies. Private network technology (VPNs, APNs, and IPsec protocols) can be helpful by cellular IoT devices to provide levels of protection to the device, network, and data.
