Understanding IoT Networks
For environmental monitoring, in the natural and built environments, IoT provides near real-time data from sensors deployed to monitor the physical environment. Sensing requirements and applications are broad.
Examples can range from a geotechnical engineer monitoring soil drainage on a landfill site to a forester looking at rates of carbon sequestration in a native plantation.
Real-time data collection provides information for real-time asset management, offsets labor-intensive data collection, and provides surety of data collection for research applications.
The IoT technology used for data delivery will vary between site and sensing requirements; there is no one technology that will best suit every application.
Because ICT International’s focus is always on sense, our approach to IoT is agnostic; providing a suite of IoT Nodes that will support the most appropriate sensors for the application while also providing the best form of connectivity for the installation site and monitoring network.
