Understand Edge-Device Ecosystems in the IoT Puzzle: Build or Buy?

by Exosite, on August 2, 2016

Developing an IoT strategy has quickly become the focus for both old and new organizations representing a vast amount of industries. When developed and implemented properly, an IoT product deployment can offer numerous benefits, including improved efficiency and new revenue streams. A key advantage of an IoT solution is the value added from data captured within an edge-device ecosystem.

The collection and analysis of data is imperative to uncovering value with IoT - it may be the focus of your product or simply an add-on that enhances the core functionality that your users expect. In this segment of our Solving the IoT Puzzle: Build or Buy? white paper, we will be covering the key components that will give your device the “Internet of Things” label, which are:

  • Data Collection: Selected hardware will need to support IoT data collection, likely through connected sensors.
  • Hardware Connectivity: Your hardware will need to include a radio, either directly connecting each device to the cloud via cellular or Ethernet or through an external gateway.
  • Communication Protocol: Device firmware will need to support the collection and communication of data to the cloud through an embedded IoT protocol.
  • Device-level Security Measures: IoT security must be considered in terms of the hardware, firmware, and physical locations of your connected device.

For a full description of the necessary edge-device components download the full Build or Buy white paper below or contact one of our IoT experts to initiate your connected solution today.
