The IoT Revolution

The Internet of Things (IoT) is connecting humans to physical objects in such a ways we never imagined in our life. It is generating a never ending stream of new da​ta which is coming with all the revolutionary insights and game-changing value for customers. IoT is going really vast now-a-days by connecting together online with each other. As per news, the companies are grabing new o​​opportunities in the rapidly evolving IoT space. However, they need a good and intelligent team of experts to help them and understand their options. Also, they will g reduce risks and ​​provide access to resources to make their IoT vision a reality.

Avnet is a leading global technology distributor which has been entered into an agreement with AT&T to support designers. Also, the agreement allows Avnet to seamlessly integrate AT&T’s cloud application development in the development and production of next-generation Internet of Things (IoT) devices. It is all occupied with global cellular connection which is supported by flagship platforms AT&T M2X and AT&T Flow Designer.

We know that both the companies have previously worked together on Cellular IoT Starter Kit and LTE IoT Add-On Kit. But now, the company announced their plans to develop the Avnet Global LTE IoT Starter Kit. This plans will be powered by AT&T and Avnet both. Also, the Avnet Global LTE IoT Starter Kit is fully integrated with the AT&T IoT Platform (M2X and Flow). It is basically a cloud-based device which fully managed with the time-series data storage service. It has to be done for network and connected machine-to-machine (M2M) devices with the Industrial IoT. It is scheduled to be released in second quarter of 2017 but the Avnet Global LTE IoT Starter Kit offers a complete development environment for sensor-to-cloud applications and services.

The starter kit will be announced and available with a global SIM to enable operation in over 25 countries. This will have a small (79.5 mm x 30 mm) development board build around Wistron NeWeb Corporation (WNC) M18QWG global LTE Cat-4 modem module.

A new set of system peripherals, controllable through the user’s application code, are easily accessible through a 60-pin expansion connector or a 2×6 peripheral module. This will facilitate customization with application-specific sensors and I/O interfaces through the addition of user-created or off-the-shelf plug-in boards.

Everything seems to be so fast in this world specially when we talk about any process that goes online. Paying Bills, Recharges, Ordering food and what not? going easy day by day in this internet oriented world. Similarly, IoT is another a keyword goes online which provides us a connection between the humans and computer. According to the latest reports, it seems that Internet of Things (IoT) units in India are expected to see a rapid 31-fold growth to reach 1.9 billion by 2020. Also, the reports said, Deloitte, a popular company, predicted on Monday, adding that the market value of IoT is expected to reach $9 billion by 2020.

We came to know that even with over 750 million cards in circulation and significant growth, mobile-based and digital payments will eclipse physical card payments. IoT is going to be the next big thing for Indian markets that the operators in India will rapidly grow into a hub for IoT solutions and it will grow up to a large extent.

According to the company,

“With advances in reliability, accuracy and technology of advance tech measures such as biometric authentication, digitization will gain popularity in various business applications. The emergence of new tech trends will help transform digital economy in 2017 and will help operators in identifying new revenue generating opportunities, enhance customer experience, and improve operational efficiencies.”

According to the various reports, In the five-year span between 2015-2020, the Internet of Things will grow faster than any other category of connected devices. Recently a new Cisco report said that, the number of machine-to-machine connections should grow nearly 2.5-fold, from 4.9 billion in 2015 to 12.2 billion in 2020. The new Cisco projects will grow rapidly in its in its 11th annual Visual Networking Index: Global IP Traffic Forecast Update. According to the latest reports, machine to machine connections should represent about 46% of total connected devices.

 CISCO REPORTS:

“A growing number of M2M applications, such as smart meters, video surveillance, healthcare monitoring, transportation, and package or asset tracking, are contributing in a major way to the growth of devices and connections.”
