How to choose the right IoT platform?

IoT data platforms combine many of the tools you need to route device data, manage and visualize data and perform analytics. They tend to offer more solutions, but these solutions cannot be divided into a single category. The categorization of IoT data platforms into individual categories is everything.   

The IoT platform acts as the foundation of their IoT solutions. They select an Internet of Things platform that is capable of providing the highest capabilities for deploying, maintaining, monitoring, managing and updating your IoT devices that will strengthen your business and ensure its continued growth. While the market is flooded with hundreds of IoT platform providers, big and small, Avsystems stands out as a reliable, secure, scalable and flexible solution that can adapt to your needs and requirements. The right IoT platform not only provides full compatibility with your businesses but also ensures security and solutions.    

Choosing the right IoT device platform depends on how far ahead you are in the IoT launch curve. In this respect, make sure you develop a roadmap for your IoT device development and IoT opt-in platform.    

Choosing the right platform for your IoT device development amounts to a pure ROI.  Whichever IoT platform you choose for your device, it is the foundation on which your product will connect to the cloud. It will be embedded in a system that functions as part of a production system and for many years will be a critical part of the company’s infrastructure.    

While some IoT platforms share many common elements such as cloud-based storage and processing APIs and scalability, other IoT platforms are unique as complete end-to-end platform providers that offer sales, installation and services beyond the devices themselves. For example, platforms such as GE Predix and Honeywell’s IoT Suite are tailored to industrial IoT users, while platforms such as Bluepillar offer energy service platforms that serve users outside the energy industry.    

An end-to-end IoT platforms provides hardware and software connectivity, security and device management tools to manage millions of simultaneous device connections. It provides managed integrations that you need for firmware upgrades, device management, cloud connections and mobile modems to connect and monitor a fleet of devices. If you want to take advantage of Industry 4.0, also known as smart manufacturing, you need an IoT platform to collect, manage and analyze the raw data generated by networked devices across the company.    

They are platforms for the design and development of IoT. These are platforms that focus on devices that connect to the Internet using various low-power, low-cost telecommunications media such as NB-IoT and LORA.    

Cloud Platforms aim to eliminate the complexity of building your complex network stack and to provide back-end services and other services to monitor and track millions of simultaneous device connections. If you are contracted to multiple carriers, IoT connectivity platforms offer a single interface for deploying, monitoring and managing your devices anywhere in the world. Your job is to manage the connectivity between your devices and your cloud platform for many mobile operators and other specialized carriers such as Sigfox.    

An IoT platform provides the basic connectivity and visibility required to create and manage a robust network of connected devices. An IoT platform allows you to manage devices, data and connectivity requirements of all connected devices simultaneously. When your IoT platform integrates with your ERP platform, connectivity is taken to another level, enabling your IT solution to interact with IoT data rationally and centrally.    

An IoT platform that specializes in device management should be reviewed concerning the security solutions offered. An IoT platform should be robust and scalable enough to handle millions of simultaneous device connections and configure machine-to-machine interactions.    

IoT platforms are expected to conduct device management, data analysis and integration with enterprise IT applications. They build state-of-the-art ERP solutions so that companies can leverage the software to deepen the penetration of IoT and data automation capabilities and take more advantage of the technology.    

The IoT device platform you use for pre-market fit can be expensive, bloated, and difficult to deploy on a large scale. For many consumer IoT products, connectivity and management are included in their application enablement platform. With this in mind, we look at the Barbara Edge platform and focus on its tools that enable remote monitoring and management of IoT devices. In this episode of the IoT Product Leadership Podcast, you will learn more about a robust IoT device platform like Azure Sphere.
