As the end of 2018 approaches, we begin to think about what technology would look like in 2019. One of the hottest trends today is the Internet of Things (IOT), which brings us closer to everyday products such as home thermostats, smart door locks, smart meters, and applications in industrial and military applications. So what will the Internet of Things bring to us in 2019?
Most large enterprises have integrated the IoT into their core systems and projects to drive digital business. We will continue to see connectivity becoming part of the enterprise IT architecture—in fact, within five years, the Internet of Things will be at the heart of millions of business processes. In the future, the company even takes it for granted that it can remotely control and monitor equipment and appliances such as vehicles and HVAC systems, mainly thanks to the Internet of Things connection.
In 2019, security will play an important role as we rely on networked equipment to make our lives better and more convenient. IoT security requires a multi-layered approach, and all participants in the IoT ecosystem are responsible for the security of devices, data, and solutions. This means that device manufacturers, application developers, consumers, carriers, integrators, and enterprises should follow best practices. In 2019, we will see more investment in the field of IoT security.
Using data generated by the Internet of Things will force data to the edge, and it will force mobile network operators to move toward 5G at an unprecedented rate. Nowadays, the level of super-connection that users expect is that there is almost no room for advancement on the 5G propulsion road, but it should not be too exciting. The migration of 5G will not happen overnight, and this may not happen in the coming year.
Another area that will change rapidly in 2019 is cars, especially fleet management. The connected car industry is a growing area and is expected to grow exponentially in the coming years. In 2019, IoT usage in trucks, car rentals and other companies will grow exponentially. At the same time, in 2019, the use of cellular mobile technology will grow at an alarming rate.
Another concept we will see in 2019 is the Industrial Internet of Things. (IIOT), IIoT is part of the larger concept of the Internet of Things (IoT). The application of the Internet of Things in manufacturing is called the Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) or Industry 4.0. IIOT revolutionizes manufacturing by acquiring and accessing larger amounts of data faster and more efficiently. Many innovative companies have begun implementing IIoT by leveraging intelligent networking equipment in their factories.
IIoT can greatly improve the connectivity, efficiency, scalability, and time and cost of industrial organizations. Due to predictive maintenance, improved safety and other operational efficiencies, the company has benefited from IIoT through cost savings. The IIoT Intelligent Device Network enables industrial organizations to break down data silos and connect all people, data and processes from the factory floor to the executive office. Business leaders can use IoT data to fully and accurately understand the business’s operations, which will help them make better decisions.
