IoT Trends that Will Change How Businesses Collect and Think About Data
1. CAT M1 Drives Down Cost Of Cellular Data
Since the RF bandwidth is reduced, the signal-to-noise ratio increases, which according to AT&T can increase coverage by a factor of 7. It is feasible to put thousands of devices on the same data plan and spread out the data cost across all the devices.
Cat M1 generally flies under the radar as a cellular option. Most folks have heard of 5G, but at CTS we describe CAT M1 as basically the opposite of 5G. It is meant for low bandwidth applications, which is perfect for monitoring devices such as thermostats, movement detection, odometer and flow readings, temperature, occupancy, and other low bandwidth solutions.
2. Innovation Driven By Legal And Compliance Teams
3. Sensor Innovation
Most people have heard about the connected home where everything from a fridge, stove, and washer/dryer connect online. When this is extrapolate to a workplace, the opportunities are endless. As battery technologies improve (thanks to demand from electric cars), it is possible that more devices can become smaller and last longer. Ultimately, if you can think it, it can likely be made and incorporated into an IoT device.
4. Data Visualizations And Dashboards
With each IoT project we create at CTS, we focus heavily on the visualization aspect of the data. We ask who needs to be notified and when they need to be notified, and how will the data provide the user with the necessary information when they login to the application. An IoT device can be smart, but if you can’t quickly consume the data it is providing, it does not provide any value.
