Internet of Things (IoT) Overview

The Internet of Things or IoT is a concept that has been around for well over a decade. What is IoT and why is it a major talking point? The Internet of Things is a huge and rapidly growing ecosystem resulting from the embedding of IP connectivity in ordinary devices or ‘things’. The broad aim is to capture previously untapped data from across this infrastructure and to turn this data into tangible insights and actions, some of which may even be automated in nature. For example, smart grids in the utilities industry involve placing sensors throughout the grid in order to track energy usage and grid performance, and in turn more efficiently manage both the energy output and the maintenance of the grid itself.

Adding Internet connectivity to your existing networks is the gateway for a truly unified communications infrastructure, where multiple communications channels and information sources are transmitted across the same network and the same devices. This is easier and more cost-effective to manage, and means that employees only need a single device for multiple communications tasks.

Simoco's IoT solutions will help your organisation bridge the gap between possibility and reality. We will do this by providing your organisation a revolutionary all in one intelligent communications platform that will unleash the full potential of IoT.
