Connecting Your Product to the IoT: What You Need to Know and How to Get Started

The Internet of Things (IoT) presents a world of opportunity for organizations in every industry. Products that were traditionally sent out to the field, never to be heard from again, can now come to life, communicating their status, usage patterns and errors, among other things, to the customers who are using them. Organizations can use these data streams to improve product quality, modify existing products, design new products, enhance customer experience and more.

But before you can begin using IoT data to your advantage, you must either design an IoT-connected product from the ground up or transform your product into a connected IoT device.

The purpose of this white paper is to explain, in a practical manner, the steps required to connect a device to the IoT. Included in this guide, you will learn about:

  • Connectivity methods such as direct-to-internet, or via a gateway
  • Hardware solutions and the pros and cons of each
  • Microprocessor selection and firmware development
  • connecting-your-product-to-the-iot
