Best practices for IoT connectivity management – and the associated management of the carriers providing connectivity – is critical for any organization looking to succeed with IoT. The challenge, though, is the sheer number of different IoT connectivity technologies that are available to organizations, which range from cellular, to satellite, to Bluetooth, to LoRa – just to name a few. For many businesses, cellular connectivity is the most efficient solution due to its nearly ubiquitous coverage and ability to connect a highly scalable number of devices over vast geographic regions. However, even within the narrowed realm of cellular technologies, there are myriad capabilities and options that businesses must navigate to achieve success.
The first step of IoT connectivity management requires identifying and evaluating the various connectivity capabilities that are demanded for a specific IoT use case. The technologies, capabilities, and requirements are so diverse for optimal solution performance, with no one-size-fits-all connectivity solution. Key factors to examine include bandwidth, battery life, throughput, and mobility support, but these are just some of the most critical network needs.
