IoT (Internet of Things) and wireless technology are closely related and often go hand in hand. Here’s an overview of both concepts:
1. Internet of Things (IoT):
• IoT refers to a network of interconnected physical devices or objects that can communicate and exchange data with each other through the internet.
• These devices can range from everyday objects like appliances, vehicles, and wearables to industrial machinery and infrastructure.
• IoT devices are equipped with sensors, actuators, and connectivity capabilities to gather data, make decisions, and perform tasks.
• The collected data can be analyzed to derive insights, optimize processes, and enable automation.
2. Wireless Technology:
• Wireless technology enables the transmission of data and information without the need for physical connections or cables.
• Wireless communication relies on electromagnetic waves to transfer data between devices.
• Different wireless technologies are used for various purposes, including short-range and long-range communication.
• Common wireless technologies used in IoT include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, Z-Wave, LoRaWAN, and cellular networks (e.g., 3G, 4G, and 5G).
