What is Internet of Things (IoT)?
According to Wikipedia, the Internet of Things (IoT) is “a network of devices that are not normally considered computer-based, and that are able to achieve greater value and service by giving them the ability to connect and communicate with other devices”. Simply put, it is a technology that forms a network in which things can communicate with each other. Billions of devices need to be connected, and the network is becoming increasingly used.
There is a lot of noise around the Internet of Things (IoT) as a way for manufacturers to travel, shop and track inventory, but according to many reports it is moving from an ambiguous buzzword to a marketable product and service. This is driven by increased security investment, a growing trend in the use of smart devices in everyday life, and an increasing consumer demand for connected devices.
How IoT impact and change our life?
What most people don’t understand is that the Internet of Things (IoT) is already an integral part of our lives. The modern Internet of Things (IoT) will have massive economic implications, as expected by the McKinsey Global Institute. By 2020, it is expected to generate an additional $344 billion in revenue and drive $177 billion in cost cuts.
IoT technologies are applied differently by each industry, but we strongly believe that companies that learn to use the data generated by the Internet of Things are the ones that will survive and prosper in the future. IoT devices, as they help companies streamline their operations and increase profitability, can be tailored to more of their technologies to help companies succeed. The devices that contribute to the Internet of Things cover a wide range of industries, such as retail, transportation, energy, finance, health care, logistics, environmental protection, Smart City, manufacturing, ect.

Key to IoT application
IoT technologies, their use for communication across devices and the use of robust strategies to secure endpoints will be key to any initiative that takes advantage of the Internet of Things.
IoT devices are deployed in anywhere, the connectivity will impact by network infrastructure and external environment. Security is another major concern for IoT users, and because they are connected to the Internet, they are subject to the same cyber attacks that can be carried out by malware, viruses and other forms of malicious software and hardware.
What role does Qixiang cellular router play in IoT network?
Traditionally, Devices/Machine relied on wired network such as cable Fiber/ADSL to connecting to server center, and connecting between machine to machine. But as IoT development, various of machine are deployed anywhere on the earth. Many locations without wired network condition, or it is expensive/difficult to built wire network infrastructure, all this will constrained IoT implement.
This is the reason we need a mobile cellular device in the IoT system, make sure devices can easily connect to internet (WiFi, Ethernet, Cellular) with high security. Qixiang 4g/5g cellular router provide reliable, secure mobile network connection for Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine to Machine (M2M) data transmission and communication. It is the most important of IoT/M2M system.
