When developing a solution, it is critical to partner with the right communications network. The communication network has the all-important function of transporting the data from the hardware to the selected cloud service provider. The solution’s effectiveness relies on the communication network’s ability to perform this function with no interruption. Additionally, there are multiple factors to consider when choosing a communication network. These include, national coverage, architecture of the network, data transmission time (e.g. data updated every 30 seconds), and future technology developments.
Thingstream meets all the above criteria. It provides enterprise-grade connectivity for IoT applications. In addition, it provides global connectivity to over 190 countries. CIRT has partnered with Thingstreamdue to the company’s global presence along with the organisations ongoing research and development around global IOT trends. It use GSM, 2G,3G to create its reliable network for IOT enabled devices. Through this partnership, CIRT has access to the communication network with the all-important function of transporting the data from the IoT hardware to our cloud service provider.
