Massive IoT Grows in Strategic Importance to Device Management Providers


Massive Internet of Things (IoT) is both a large-scale deployment of IoT devices and one that is resource constrained in terms of computing power and battery power. Massive IoT deployments are strategically important to IoT companies, like platform vendors and connectivity suppliers because of massive IoT’s scalability, which can create large and recurrent revenue streams. Device agents for the massive IoT can be divided into two groups, the first grouping consists of Short-Range Wireless (SRW) devices which requires a gateway to connect to the cloud. SRWs do not require embedded software, or “device agents” on the SRW device, hence an agentless architecture. However, there is still a requirement for embedded agents on the gateway itself. The second category are IoT devices which do not require a gateway backhaul because the device has cellular (such as Low-Power Wide-Access (LPWA)-LTE) modules built into them. These are increasingly Lightweight Machine-to-Machine (LwM2M)-compliant (support for native device agents) and so can s…
