The human race has been witness to revolutions that have changed the shape of the Earth. From the discovery of fire to the assembly line, the human race has seen it all. Today, we are part of the fourth industrial revolution, also called Industry 4.0 – which in simpler terms is the changes the onset of technology has brought in the day to day functioning of life. Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things (IoT) have become a huge part of our lives. With Siri and Alexa around, we just need to think and the end product is right in front of us. Whether it is to find a new place to eat or book flight tickets (in a no pandemic world, obviously) – it is all just a blink away.
Not just in our personal lives, but enterprises and organizations are also heavily dependent on them which in turn makes work more smooth and seamless. IoT along with digital transformation is accelerating and changing the scene of work in all sectors. Delivering new business insights along with data-driven optimization and automation. It has been helping in improving productivity and reducing manual labour. Along with efficient operation management and better use of resources while being cost-effective. IoT has become a “must-have” option for businesses to stay relevant in the market today. From achieving scalability, flexibility to security and overall cost-effectiveness, IoT is taking industries to a new height of digital transformation.
There is no denying that this is just the start of a bigger and better technological world. The only way from here for IoT is to go upwards. A study done by a global market research firm – Allied Market Research says that IoT would comprise 21 billion devices by the year 2020 and in order to better support it, the SDN market will explode to $132.9 billion by 2022. India is becoming a hub spot for IoT. The current accelerated pace of IoT deployments is making sectors like industrial manufacturing, energy agriculture, utilities, transport and logistics are leading the market. Along with the number of IoT startups increasing to roughly 70%. As well as a plan for building more than 100 smart cities, where the focus is to enable seamless communication not only amongst humans but between machine to machine and machine to humans.
IoT is an integral part of connected living and industrialization. Rigidity in the current network infrastructure limits the enormous possibilities IoT has to offer. That’s where SDN or Software Designed Network comes to play. In recent years, SD-WAN has emerged with the sole aim to simplify such complexities and help evolve enterprise networks to be more flexible. The software-defined based framework simplifies the IoT management process and provides vital solutions for the challenges in the traditional IoT infrastructure. It helps in providing the required reliability, validity and security to drive traffic.
THE NEED OF THE HOUR
As already mentioned, SD-IoT has become an integral part of businesses and enterprises. However, why is it the need of the hour? Nexapp’s SD-IoT Instaroute is here to answer that question. It provides fast and agile IoT deployments. One of the most impressive capabilities SD-IoT offers is the zero-touch provision, which automates the connection of devices and management of functions linked with access control, networking and communications. Along with real-time monitoring and control and transmission. Increasing data transmission stability and reliability with flexible and scalable solutions – providing enhanced user experience and production efficiency. Enabled with 3G and 4G networks, it extends the scope of equipment monitoring regardless of the environment or distance.
SD-WAN and IoT complement each other. A technology that can better prepare a network for a successful and robust future, also providing an open environment for application developers to develop innovative tools and software.
