Nice IoT solution. But how long can you live with it?

The real challenge of IoT is not building your solution – it’s living with what you’ve built. In other words, it’s easy enough to create a solution that delivers the goods right now. But what happens when needs change? Or you want to expand into new markets? You might also find that your chosen technology has suddenly become obsolete. Or that maintenance costs are killing profits. It’s like painting yourself into a corner. 

Fortunately, this situation is avoidable. The trick is to choose the right technology to enable your solution and business to evolve. And the right partner to support you throughout the lifecycle of your solution.

IoT - More business than tech

Moving into IoT is not just a technology venture. If that surprises you, you’re not alone. But the fact is, IoT will become a core aspect of your business and influence many facets of your operation. The choice of technology is still a big deal. But just as important is how the solution will be used daily over time; factors like network quality and coverage are vital to efficiency and the customer experience.

Seeing IoT as a business tool clarifies the need to get your solution right from the start, planning for where it will take you and what might change along the way. 

Like any business tool, support is a vital factor in avoiding unexpected costs and customer frustration. It also helps you get to market faster and grow more freely. 

Technology for today and tomorrow

We can’t overstate the importance of the long-term perspective. After all, what’s the point of ten-year battery life if your solution becomes obsolete after five?

Our cellular LPWA technologies – Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) and LTE-M – have been developed specifically for IoT, with benefits such as extended mobile coverage, long battery life and deep penetration. They’re also included as the “Massive IoT” component of the official 5G standards. This means they will continue to be supported and developed long into the future.
