What is IoT
The internet of things, or IoT, is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers ( UIDs ) and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.
How IoT works
An IoT ecosystem consists of web-enabled smart devices that use embedded processors, sensors and communication hardware to collect, send and act on data they acquire from their environments. IoT devices share the sensor data they collect by connecting to an IoT gateway or other edge device where data is either sent to the cloud to be analyzed or analyzed locally. Sometimes, these devices communicate with other related devices and act on the information they get from one another. The devices do most of the work without human intervention, although people can interact with the devices -- for instance, to set them up, give them instructions or access the data.
The connectivity, networking and communication protocols used with these web-enabled devices largely depend on the specific IoT applications deployed .
IoT applications rely on physical connectivity and wireless communication. Many of these data and power connections use RF connectors, cables, and a range of wireless technologies. These trends will continue. High-speed data, enterprise networking, and industrial IoT applications are taking full advantage of various forms of flexible and durable RF connectivity.
The rise of artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things has brought great changes to human life. Smart refrigerators, smart TVs, smart washing machines, smart speakers, smart lighting, smart air conditioners, smart door locks, smart curtains, etc., have the ability to connect to the Internet of Things, and have gradually become the new focus of the development of the Internet of Things. The application of the Internet of Things is more and more widely, and it has penetrated deeply into many industries such as power, transportation, industry, medical treatment, security and so on. These fields will be a new blue ocean for the market of electronic connectors. ECT's one-stop RF solution helps you connect to the bright future.
