Directly connected IoT nodes

To fully unleash all the possibilities that the Internet of Things (IoT) concept enables, a very large number of devices – more than 20 billion by 2020 – will be connected to the cloud. By using cloud services to collect and process data, user experience and convenience when interacting with any particular product or system can be greatly enhanced. Directly connecting nodes to the cloud to a range of commercially available platforms – including IBM Watson, Amazon’s AWS or Microsoft Azure – and selecting IP-native wired and wireless connectivity technology, help minimize the infrastructure required to access each node. At ST, we have developed a range of solutions including pre-integrated cloud connectivity protocols, provisioning and upgrade libraries as well as Software Development Kits (SDK) to support architectures with nodes directly connected to Cloud to help developers create innovative connected devices and services.

Cellular connected nodes

Cellular is one of the long-range gateway-less wireless connectivity solutions for IoT, connecting devices to the cloud through telecom operator networks and infrastructure. Typical example applications using 2G, 3G, 4G (including LTE) and today’s 5G
