Internet Of Things (IoT)

IoT technologies make it possible to connect all kinds of things (maybe everything) not just to one another but to management applications that monitor, record and control.

Unlike Machine-To-Machine (M2M), IoT is infinitely more sophisticated. IoT is broader in its scope, crucially involving IP networks, cloud and middleware platforms making it far more powerful than M2M alone.

IoT technologies enhance efficiency by providing superior, real-time control that inevitably delivers economic benefit.

The Fundamentals

The Internet of Things consists of three fundamentals:

  • The things
  • How those things connect
  • The management of conveyed data

The Things

‘Things’ can be anything physical such as devices, machinery, equipment, buildings and vehicles. This can also extend to organic forms – or living things.


Using cellular, fixed line, satellite and low-power radio networks connecting to the global GSM M2M networks and the internet, data can be transferred continuously, around the world.


Management applications are created by developers and integrated with ERP, CRM and work-scheduling tools. However, these applications rely on robust, multi-directional, secure communication and the provisioning of such requires a proven partner.

A Universal Solution

Like the internet itself, the Internet of Things is available to everyone – it is both scalable and affordable. IoT can help generate new revenue streams, support decision making, cut costs, improve safety, reduce downtime, and improve sustainability.
