Implementing Cellular IoT Solutions for Digital Transformation

By: Dennis McCain

Overview of this book

Even if you’re an IoT technology manager with a sound understanding of wireless local area network technologies like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, you may face many unique challenges when implementing a wireless wide area network (WWAN) IoT solution with cellular technologies with respect to choosing the optimal IoT device, cellular connectivity, and architecture. To help you overcome such roadblocks, this digital transformation book guides you in implementing a robust, end-to-end cellular IoT solution using best practices for all aspects of managing the IoT solution. Starting with an introduction to the top IoT markets and solutions in the context of an enterprise’s digital transformation, this book will show you how this leads to cost savings and new business models. You’ll grasp all you need to know about the IoT system components, life cycle, and best practices for implementing an IoT solution. While the book explains all the leading IoT wireless technologies, the focus is on LTE and 5G cellular technologies. With a review of real-world cellular IoT solution case studies and future IoT trends, you'll be ready to work with wireless IoT technologies, devices, and architectures. By the end of this book, you'll be able to identify the best wireless technologies for your IoT use cases and successfully implement cellular IoT solutions addressing key issues in the solution life cycle.

Managing the Cellular IoT Solution Life Cycle

So far in this book, we have reviewed the value of the IoT, enterprise IoT markets, IoT device and network architectures, IoT wireless technologies, IoT security, and IoT solution case studies with a focus on the cellular IoT. Given that enterprise IoT solutions are expected to perform in the field for many years, it is important to plan the full cellular IoT solution life cycle as part of your enterprise IoT strategy. It should be clear that a full cellular IoT solution is complex with several components, including the IoT device, wireless connectivity, cellular network, IoT platform, and enterprise application – the chosen system architecture components impact the performance of the overall cellular IoT solution. Most businesses do not have the expertise to develop each of these disparate components, and unlike a consumer product life cycle, with an enterprise IoT solution, developers need to interact with, monitor, and maintain...
