One of the most significant considerations and essential factors of IoT both in industry and in our day-to-day lives is security! To secure the connection of all objects and devices, privacy and security are critical, but at the same time easy to implement. If the internet connection is secure, then all connected devices are secure. Luckily, many cybersecurity systems are making it possible to connect everything on a safe scale.
The next consideration to implement IoT in your objects and devices are the several systems available in your country and for your industry. Some of the systems used in the experience of Rompa are:
- WLAN, available in every country.
- Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), available in every country.
- LoRa is available in parts of North and South America, Africa, Europe, Asia and Australia, although the bandwidths differ per location.
- Sigfox is available in most European countries, as well as in Australia, Japan, Tunisia, Oman, Madagascar, Laos, South Africa, Iran, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Mexico and the United States.
NB-IoT and LTE-M utilise existing 3G and 4G networks, which offer virtually global coverage. LTE-M is very popular in the United States.
