Bluetooth has been viewed by many as a convenient way to listen to music and connect your mobile phone to the car audio system. Bluetooth was seen by many sectors as a consumer technology. The rise of IoT technology increases the usage of Bluetooth with it soon becoming the primary connectivity to over 60% of wireless IoT devices. Where mobility is needed Bluetooth has the ideal connection for sensors and IoT devices out in the field, where distances for wireless connections can be more than a kilometre rather than measured in a few feet. The case for asset tracking and large-scale sensor networks makes the use of Bluetooth across industrial spaces compelling, this combined with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) provides convincing connectivity solutions for IoT devices of all sizes.

Need for diversity in geographical areas

Businesses are demanding that the information needed to analyse and monitor elements within their industries, are delivered in real-time. Many mobile units, such as vehicles rely on separate network connections to move information from disparate systems sources. The result is a mobile units often maintain a variety of data sources across multiple cellular networks. This makes for very expensive connectivity in a single unit and may discourage organisations from collating more information which, in turn, leads to a better informed and more agile business decisions. The need for a unified hub that aggregates and manages the data and that can in turn be centrally configured and managed remotely in real-time is an interesting and compelling story.
