The Internet of Things (IoT) improves the way we work and live. But this is only possible with the ubiquitous, flexible and long-lasting wireless connection. At the heart of all this is a small device named IoT or M2M wireless module, which is responsible for connecting virtually anything to wireless networks. Machine-to-Machine (M2M) cellular modules come with a range of wireless standards and provide a range of features that can impact the success of M2M applications. The M2M wireless module handles the communication of devices or machines to with each other. So how do you choose the right wireless module for your solution?
Wireless modules are a small electronic device built into objects, machines, and things that connect to wireless networks that send and receive data. The IoT module, sometimes referred to as the 'radio chip', contains the same technology and data circuits as in mobile phones, but without features such as a display or keypad. Another key feature of IoT modules is that they always provide connectivity. This is because IoT must send data automatically, in real time and 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.
