2 Insight provide education, advice and guidance to enable you to select the right solution and technology for your business need.

With the large number of different IoT wireless networks1, technologies, protocols and application platforms available, it essential to seek independent advice to ensure that you do not waste time and money adopting a solution/technology that:

– is not fit for purpose

– does not scale

– is not maintainable in the field2

– is insecure3 with no means of upgrading

– where the key vendors do not have a viable business model and therefore go out of business

Internet of Things

The ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) is the network of physical objects or “things” embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and connectivity to enable objects to exchange data with the manufacturer, operator and/or other connected devices. The network of ‘things’ enables/creates opportunities for more direct integration between the physical world and computer-based systems.

The IoT ecosystem is very complex with many different components, technologies and companies involved in delivering an end to end solution. This complexity is illustrated in the following diagram:
