Core challenges in IoT solution deployment
(MENAFN- Dudes & Dolls World) Amit Singh, Founder & CEO of Teliolabs
Internet of Things also known as IoT is an ecosystem where devices across the globe can interact with each other. This needs a software embedded on the hardware and also on the cloud to utilize its full potential.
However, it is easier said than done. With so many components at work a seamless ecosystem for many functions needs to be developed in a secure manner as IoT can change the whole way of life known to us in today’s times. But developing an ecosystem is not the core challenge but is a part of the core of this ecosystem. Let’s take a look at few of the core challenges
Higher bandwidth & speeds
Though we are on 4G network and switching on basic IoT devices like lights & fans may give us joy. But the real challenge comes to its widespread implementation in Industries when we are looking at version 4. IoT devices when installed in public or private projects and their quantity runs into thousands then a better network with low latency is required for them to operate within a timeframe to get optimum results. This can be achieved by using 5G networks when they are rolled out in the Indian market. E.g traffic lights needs to be function without delays to avoid traffic snarls or a manufacturing unit needs to respond to command immediately so that extra production doesn’t contribute to waste.
Affordability & Awareness
India lags behind in manufacturing sector when it comes to semiconductors. India needs to invite global firms to produce chips which can be truly made in India without inviting taxes and duties thus, making them affordable for various sectors to avail IoT benefits. The affordability of these devices will generate interest and awareness among the stakeholders who always look for ways to integrate technology in their ecosystem to get rid of hassles and cut costs. However, with 5G a distant dream the awareness level is at the top of the pyramid which needs to trickle down to SME’s & MSME’s to utilize the benefits of IoT solutions
IoT devices when installed at critical and rugged landscapes they need a power source to keep on functioning so that human intervention to keep the power source running is minimized. IC designers need to develop chips which can go into deep sleep mode and need minimum power while in deep sleep mode. For industrial purpose battery life of 10+ years is common expectation but in medical field battery failure is not an option when it comes to devices like pacemakers.
Current cyber security standards need to be upgraded as most of the focus is towards network & cloud security where endpoint security and OTA security is generally overlooked. IoT revolution will give rise to many manufacturers which may end up producing insecure and non-compliant products thus giving opportunity to individuals or state sponsored entities to create issues related to core sectors of India like power & defense. Thus, a benchmark has to be set on the national level to plug the inflow of such devices from various other markets or to manufacture them indigenously.
