What is the Internet of Things (loT)?
The Internet of Things is transforming assets into intelligent devices. Sensors and other electronic devices are attached to a remote machine. Depending on the machine’s particular function, they capture relevant sensor data, such as temperature, speed and location. This data can be transmitted over many types of wireless or fixed networks to an IoT platform, where it is translated into meaningful information which can be augmented with external data sources, providing customers with real business intelligence and decision making ability.
Narrowband-IoT (NB-IoT) is a new technology standard, designed to broaden the future of IoT connectivity. The technology was developed to enable efficient communication and long battery life for mass distributed devices across wide geographical footprints and deep within urban infrastructure.
