Connectivity

In the Internet of Things and Services (IoTS) everything is connected: environment, everyday things, and even people. Information is uploaded via the internet in the Cloud or transferred to a server for further analysis or action. Connectivity is therefore a cornerstone for the IoTS. Each application area has different connectivity requirements. They depend upon the volume, the flow and the speed of the sensor data that needs to be transmitted to a final destination.

Make the right choice

In selecting the appropriate connectivity solution, many parameters need to be carefully considered:

  • Power consumption
  • Achievable range
  • Size
  • Cost
  • Network topology
  • Regulation compliance
  • End-to-end security and data protection

Radio technology Advantage Limitations
WiFi High data rate High power consumption
Bluetooth Low Energy needs little power Low connectivity range
ZigBee Mesh topology to solve the range problem Low market penetration
GMS/GPRS Wide area connectivity High power consuption, high cost

The best solution for you

Choosing the right connectivity technology requires a deep knowledge of existing wireless solutions and future technologies. New standards are emerging as is the long range and low power consumption version of WiFi. Proposals have been made to replace the existing GSM network with a much more optimized solution for machine-to-machine (M2M) communication requirements. Advantages include higher range, reduced power consumption and lower costs. We offer you our sensors with inexpensive connectivity services anytime and anywhere.

Experience in the telecommunications industry gives us a strong competitive advantage. Furthermore, we have the support of the Bosch research technology centers, where highly skilled experts keep us updated with the latest developments in connectivity and interoperability.
