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.

Summary

In this chapter, we presented the challenges within enterprise IoT solution life cycle management, which can be categorized as implementation complexity and full life cycle support. We then presented an overview of the five stages of the IoT solution life cycle, including design and planning, provisioning, deployment, monitoring and management, and sunset, with a description of the key activities and considerations at each stage. Finally, we reviewed the best practices for the design and planning, provisioning, deployment, and monitoring and management stages to help ensure the success of your enterprise IoT solution.

In Chapter 10, Looking at the Road Ahead, we will cover new and emerging technology trends in and business models for enterprise cellular IoT solutions.
