The Internet of Things (IoT) connects machines, devices and objects to the internet, turning them into ‘intelligent’ assets that communicate with the world around them. IoT solutions opens up a new range of possibilities for businesses – how they operate, how they grow and how they keep customers happy.
Every day, thousands of forward-thinking companies are adopting this technology. They use it to gain immediate feedback on how a particular remote asset is being used. By capturing relevant data they can improve performance and reduce costs. IoT is the next technological revolution – and Vodafone can help you take full advantage.
IoT uses a range of technologies to create intelligent assets. First, sensors and other electronic devices are attached to a remote machine. Depending on the machine’s particular function, they capture relevant data, such as temperature or speed. This is transmitted wirelessly from a SIM integrated in the device to a central server, where it is translated into meaningful information. In response, messages can then be sent the other way to change the way the machine is behaving. For example: the machine is running too fast; slow it down.
