The Internet of Things (IoT) is revolutionizing industries worldwide, with its potential being limitless in areas such as manufacturing, health, utilities, and smart cities. According to recent predictions, global spending on IoT is expected to reach $1.1 trillion per year by 2023. In Australia, interest in IoT connectivity continues to grow, driven by the desire to capture more data, find efficiencies, and have real-time access and control over assets and infrastructure.
As market leaders in IoT connectivity, we understand the transformative role this technology can play. However, we also acknowledge that finding the right connectivity solution to fit your business can be complex. Factors such as location, range, bandwidth, power, and device type all play their part. This article aims to simplify this process by outlining the advantages and ideal applications of each technology.
