The Internet of Things (IoT) is improving the way we work and live. But this is only possible with an omnipresent, flexible and long-term wireless connection. The heart of all of it is a small device called IoT module, which is responsible for connecting practically anything to wireless networks. The IoT modules come with a variety of wireless technology standards and provide a variety of functions that can impact on the success of IoT applications. So, how do you choose the right IoT module for your solution?
An IoT module is a small electronic device embedded in objects, machines and things that connect to wireless networks and send and receive data. An IoT module, sometimes referred to as a radio chip, contains the same technology and data circuitry as in mobile phones, but without features such as a display or a keyboard. Another key feature of IoT modules is that they always provide connectivity. This is because an IoT application needs to send data automatically, in real time, without anyone pressing the send button. In addition, they are designed for extreme durability and longevity and must work continuously for ten or more years.
Thales Gemalto modules are available for implementation in the final device as a component, or as a separate terminal, or as a PCi card.
