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.

Getting started on your IoT journey

In this book, we provided a foundational review of IoT including the key markets, use cases, devices, wireless networks, architectures, and security guidelines with a focus on LTE and 5G IoT solutions. In Chapter 8, Implementing an IoT Solution with Case Studies, we presented the practical application of this knowledge for two real-world cellular IoT solution case studies. This led us to an analysis of the cellular IoT solution life cycle in Chapter 9, Managing the Cellular IoT Solution Life Cycle, which is the basis for getting started on your journey to implementing a successful enterprise IoT solution. As described in Chapter 9, Managing the Cellular IoT Solution Life Cycle, the initial design and planning stage is the most important phase to set the foundation for this successful IoT solution. To summarize, some of the key tasks in this critical stage are as follows:

  • Defining the IoT business case, stakeholders, and customers
  • Defining...
