When we talk about upgrading wireless infrastructure to the latest Wi-Fi 6E standard, it is instinctive to focus on client computing devices and smart phones. That’s because organizations want to optimize the user wireless experience for their employees and customers, and understandably so. However, for a growing number of enterprises, there’s another critical component to their wireless environment: IoT (Internet of things!). Organizations are integrating a growing fleet of IoT devices to take advantage of cutting-edge technologies. In 2022 alone, the global IoT market is expected to grow 18% to 14.4 billion active devices. If you’re only looking at optimizing the wireless experience for users, do not ignore IoT’s half of the equation!
The Internet of Things (IoT) may have been a far-fetched dream in the past, but it is quickly becoming revolutionary and lucrative in the present. Businesses, citizens and even governments are adopting IoT into their lifestyles by connecting devices and products together and controlling them remotely. The Internet of Things has almost limitless applications, from every aspect of business to healthcare, controlling the home environment and even growing plants.
