This year, 6.4 billion IoT devices will be connected worldwide, jumping to nearly 21 billion by 2020. Advances in architecture supporting IoT and M2M connectivity provide channel partners a rare opportunity to serve dynamic markets - transportation, industry, law enforcement, and many others - with a single platform that can scale to fit.
New gateways offer real-time, on-site analysis, using fog computing integrated with cloud-based analytics, which provides added flexibility and performance. Advances in connectivity ensure high-quality, 'always on' communications. Managed service capabilities allow channel partners to monitor, update, and maintain their deployments.
