The rapid development of new technologies in wireless, Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) communications is fundamentally changing how devices interact with each other and how we use information. The interplay of these technologies has created a connected world where smart devices, sensors and machines are seamlessly connected and enable intelligent data flows.
Through the use of wireless communication technologies such as 5G, NB-IoT, and LoRaWAN, devices and sensors in remote locations can be connected, enabling comprehensive coverage and real-time communication. The IoT enables the collection and analysis of big data to provide insights that lead to more efficient processes, optimized resource utilization, and improved user experience. M2M communication, on the other hand, enables the direct exchange of data between machines, without human interaction. This enables the automation and optimization of various applications, from Industry 4.0 to smart cities and autonomous vehicles.
The fusion of these technologies enables a wide range of applications, including smart building automation, remote device monitoring, wireless health monitoring, smart agriculture, logistics optimization, and more.
