Introduction to Internet of Things (IoT) Network

In this article, you will get some information on IoT network, including how to choose between eMTC and NB-IoT for your IoT network and how to connect IoT devices to IoT platform, and IIoT.

Features about Internet of Things (IoT) Network

With the development of IoT technology, the network has showed its importance to IoT devices. In this article, you will get some information of some features of the IoT network.

  1. UDP Network: There are two main transport layer protocols over IP: TCP and UDP. So far, TCP is crushing UDP. Practically everyone has heard of TCP/IP while only a minority of people know about UDP/IP.
  2. IP Network: The IP network can bring several obvious benefits to the Internet of Things.
  3. Co-Existing Network Topology in IoT: Based on the existing backbone network formed by Ethernet, it is likely that WSN/LPWA will have more and more applications in the Internet of Things. The low cost and low power consumption of WSN, combined with the low power consumption and wide coverage of LPWA, can cover a very wide range of IoT scenarios.

Challenges for Internet of Things (IoT) Network

In the development of IoT technology, many enterprises may face some challenges, like for IoT network. In this article, we will discuss about the challenges you may face for IoT network.

  1. Connectivity: Connectivity is the first concerning issue, i.e., how to connect devices to the Internet and the cloud computing platform. However, to a great extent, this is determined by the device application environment and the type of communication infrastructure provided to these devices.
  2. IoT security has always been a controversial issue. The first challenge to be considered is that security and privacy of IoT are fundamentally different from network security that we've known.

How to Build an IoT Network and Increase the Coverage

In this article, you will get some information on how to use javascript to build and IoT network and get some information on how to increase the coverage of your IoT network.

How to Choose Between eMTC and NB-IoT for Your IoT Network

eMTC (enhanced machine-type communication) and NB-IoT (narrowband Internet of Things) are two mobile IoT standards. Both the eMTC and NB-IoT mobile IoT network standards have often competed and created confusion over their application scope. In fact, both standards have distinct technical advantages and can work together, so there is no better choice. As a result, the competition is decided by who can reduce their module chip costs faster, who has a higher degree of commercialization, and whose network construction is better.

How to Connect IoT Devices to Alibaba Cloud IoT Platform

MQTT (Message Queuing Telemetry Transport) is a message protocol based on the TCP/IP protocol stack and supports asynchronous communication between the parties. MQTT separates the sender from the receiver in space and time, so it can be expanded in an unreliable network environment. Although it is called Message Queuing Telemetry Transport, it does not involve message queuing. It uses the publication and subscription model.

In this article, you will get some information on how to connect IoT devices to Alibaba Cloud IoT platform.

Intelligent Manufacturing in the IIoT Era

The transformation of capabilities of the existing production line is critical to intelligent manufacturing. For small- and medium-sized enterprises in China, only the combination of the industrial Internet with the IIoT can lead the way to intelligent manufacturing that fits their needs and is beneficial for them.
