What is an IoT module?

An IoT module – sometimes referred to as a smart module, wireless module or M2M module – is an electronic device that sends and receives data while connected to a wireless network. In a nutshell, it is the very thing that makes the Internet of Things (IoT) possible.

What makes an IoT module different from, say, a mobile phone (other than the fact it has no input device) is that they provide “always-on” connectivity. This is because the nature of IoT devices means that data needs to be sent automatically without someone hitting a “send” button in real-time.

Another point of difference is that they are designed for long-life and extreme durability. The reason for this is that they are often deployed in remote locations with extreme environments, on shipping containers that may be in hard-to-reach locations, or even underwater in some cases. Many of these environments are subject to extreme conditions such as heat, vibrations and moisture.

This can often prohibit being able to send someone to repair a faulty device, which can often result in a highly undesirable service interruption which can lead to increased costs and reduced safety in some situations.

IoT Module Solutions

There are a number of wireless technology standards when it comes to IoT modules.

Some of the more common include; 4G and 5G cellular solutions which work best in high-bandwidth situations such as connected cars, Bluetooth and LoRa applications such as smart city and road applications, as well as some enterprise applications; and, LPWAN, or Low-Power, Wide-Area solutions which are most often used in machine type communication. Finding the right standard for your needs is part of the trick to ensuring you have the system you need, and that is something that we can help with.

M2M Connectivity has a wide range of IoT Module solutions to suit a huge variety of applications. From easy-to-integrate satellite modules that deliver connectivity anywhere, anytime, to hyper-fast 5G modules that are capable of providing 4.5gbps downlink speeds, we have a module for any situation.

We also offer Cellular module dev kits, module accessories such as snap-in sockets and card adaptors as well as module device management interfaces which allow you to order and manage all your cellular devices, SIMs and subscriptions.
