The Internet of Things connects a wide range of devices, such as sensors, cameras and meters, with the world of Internet. The IoT module is a small electronic component that can communicate with a web of things. It integrates with devices connected to wireless networks. The IoT module referred to as the "wireless module", incorporates the same technology as in mobile phones.
A key advantage of IoT modules is that they provide a constant connection, send and receive data in real time. The IoT module allows you to wirelessly control devices, measure data and send them to the cloud for further processing.

IoT modules are designed for extreme durability and longevity to provide reliable connectivity, regardless of location or wireless network.
IoT modules and IoT terminals use various wireless technologies, such as 5G, 4G, 3G, LPWAN, Wifi, Bluetooth and LoRa, which ensure a reliable and secure connection.
Examples of IoT module use:
• Smart cities (vehicle parking, road monitoring, river level monitoring…)
• Healthcare (sharing of health data, control of vaccines stored in refrigerators)
• Industry (equipment temperature monitoring)
• Smart households (energy and water consumption monitoring, security devices)
• Agriculture (water level and soil moisture monitoring)
• Retail, payment systems
• Cars (downloading traffic information for navigation and SOS system in case of an accident)
Examples of the use of IoT modules are payment terminals or passenger cars
