Home / Blog / IoT: Have You Found the Module of Your Dreams?

M2M Connectivity is a specialist supplier of modules for custom applications. These modules are designed to connect devices such as computers and embedded systems, allowing for data transmission, communication, and storage.

This blog post looks at the different types of modules available, their features, and how they can help create reliable and secure connections.

Types of IoT Modules Available

M2M Connectivity supplies a wide range of modules designed for various applications. Each module is suited to meet specific needs, offering different levels of performance, reliability, security, and even size. The following list highlights some of the major types of modules offered by M2M Connectivity:

Cellular Modules

Cellular modules allow users to connect wirelessly over 3G/4G or 5G networks for remote device monitoring and control. They also provide excellent performance for time-sensitive applications such as voice or video streaming.

Cellular modules are ideal for IoT solutions that require reliable, secure data connection over long distances. They are well-suited to applications such as remote device monitoring, control and tracking and can provide excellent performance for time-sensitive tasks like voice or video streaming.

Satellite Modules

Satellite communication modules enable reliable connections even in remote locations where cellular signals cannot reach. This makes them ideal for use in harsh environments where other forms of communication are not possible.

Satellite modules are best suited for IoT solutions where communication needs to be established in remote locations or harsh environments, such as deserts, mountains, oceans, and other areas where cellular signals cannot reach. These modules are also highly reliable when it comes to data transmission over long distances since they make use of the natural satellite orbits around the Earth.

Bluetooth Modules

Bluetooth Modules provide short-distance wireless connectivity between two devices within line-of-sight range. Their low power consumption makes them well suited for mobile applications requiring low energy consumption but still providing reliable communication capability.

Bluetooth modules are typically best suited for low-power consumption applications in IoT solutions that require short-distance communication within the line-of-sight range. These modules provide reliable connections between two devices, such as computers, sensors, and embedded systems.

WiFi Modules

– WiFi Modules enable high-speed connections over a local area network (LAN). With support for 802-.11n/ac standards and speeds up to 150 Mbps, they provide a great choice for applications needing high throughput performance with minimal interference from other networks or sources of interference.

WiFi modules are ideal for applications that require a high throughput performance over a local area network. With the ability to support 802.11n/ac standards and speeds of up to 150 Mbps, they are suitable for scenarios where fast data transfer is essential and low interference from other networks or devices is required.

Zigbee Modules

Zigbee Modules allow users to establish low-power point-to-point communications extending coverage range further than more traditional radio technologies like WiFI due to their usage of mesh networking technology which supports long-distance transmissions without line-of-sight constraints. Zigbee is ideal for IoT applications requiring mesh networking capabilities including home automation networks and industrial asset tracking systems..

Zigbee modules should be used in IoT solutions where low-power, point-to-point communications are required. The mesh networking technology of Zigbee allows for long-distance transmissions without the need for line-of-sight constraints, making it ideal for home automation and industrial asset tracking systems.

Key Features

All products supplied by M2M Connectivity feature robust software development kits (SDKs) with comprehensive documentation making integration with existing software simpler than ever before! All components have been built using current industry standard protocols ensuring maximum compatibility with other technologies used in today’s connected world such as cloud services or enterprise resource planning systems (ERP).

Additionally, Modules go through rigorous quality assurance testing specifically for Australia and New Zealand prior to being delivered meaning you can rest assured that any module you purchase will be reliable and secure.
