IoT Use Case
The Internet of Things (IoT) offers many opportunities and a new world of data management and security challenges for organizations. First, IoT changes the breadth of what we connect regarding the type of devices. These devices could be as simple as a sensor or as complex as a supercomputer. The move to mobile and IoT means IT Managers must support a broad range of operating systems, various device protocols and multiple types of wireless networks. For example, there are new wireless networks to support IoT such as Long Range Wide Area Network (LoRaWAN) and Ultra Narrow Band. There is also a wide range of protocols and messaging systems that extend from legacy systems such as Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) to the Message Queue Telemetry Transport (MQTT) that targets device data collection and messaging.
