Sponsored Is the Internet of Things (IoT) complicated or relatively simple? Well, perhaps both.
In describing IoT, I like to paint a picture using an acronym coined by Numerex many years ago – DNA. An IoT solution has three main components – Devices, Networks, and Applications.
Each IoT device will have:
