What is IoT?
IoT stands for Internet of Things, this term includes every device, machine, sensor, camera, robot, or even light that is in some way connected to a network and can be controlled via a centralised location. All these connected things make up the ‘edge’ of the network, the extremities that your business connects to.
These ‘Things’ can be located anywhere, and the infrastructure that is needed to keep them connected to the network needs to be robust and reliable in sometimes extreme conditions. That is why the elements that create your businesses ‘industrial network’ have different features and functionality to serve the requirements of IoT.
