Critical Role of Telecom in Enabling IoT Business Solutions

17-02-2023 Aesthetix

The Internet of Things, or IoT, has garnered attention since the time of the digital revolution and has been gaining acceptance in different industrial fields, and the telecom industry is one of them. 

Internet of Things can be simply defined as the network of physical objects embedded with sensors or software to be connected with the purpose of data transferring. 

The growth of IoT is expected to grow exponentially over the next few years and the pandemic has got a necessary hand in contributing to this influx of investments in IoT. The statistics show a record growth of 1 trillion dollars by the year 2030. Through effective use of IoT, it becomes easier to enable customer functionality.

The telecommunications industry has embraced its solutions with IoT in the past few years. What started at 71% of the industry has grown over the years, and as of now, most industrial giants in the telecom industry are using IoT to their maximum potential, which provides enough room to adapt to future advancements as well. It is also necessary to look at how telecom integrators have become an inherent part of how IoT puts forward their facilities in different facets of the industrial world and is trying to make many changes by working hand in hand with the telecom industry.

Let us now look at how telecom helps the internet of things or IoT to easily help engage the business solutions:

 1. Smart Homes

Smart homes are no longer a fictional concept but rather very much in trend and are attracting more crowds day by day. Enhance a very agile smart home system with sophisticated devices that need high-speed internet. The telecom integrators work effectively to ensure seamless connectivity and also make sure that there won’t be any package drop that might affect the overall functioning of the devices infused into the smart home system. The demand for connected device ecosystems is indeed going to see an intense spike of around 15 million by 2023. 

 2. Smart Cities

As we talked about the ecosystem that a digitally connected home can introduce, it is similar to that when a whole neighborhood reigns in a similar idea. Technologies are now collectively used to bring in more agility and scalability to adapt to growing needs. It also helps in improving the existing standard of living of humans. Telecom infrastructure provides businesses and governments with data that help in the optimum utilization of resources that is put forth in areas like security surveillance, waste management, and proactive health care. A smart city project will be successful in its implementation only when there is an adept environment set up by the telecom integrators.

 3. Monitoring and Maintenance

Notable possibilities include equipment like backup generators, air conditioners, and energy meters that may now be remotely monitored and maintained thanks to the Internet of Things. Systems for intrusion detection and access management that are IoT-enabled assist reduce the risk of theft and property damage. Fire, water, and air quality sensors are essential for preventing prolonged exposure to elements that could harm critical infrastructure because many distant locations are located in severe conditions. Telecom integrators provide the opportunity to make its implementation effectively successful.

 4. Network Planning and Designing

Telecom integrators provide efficient optimization of the network which consequently contributes eventually to effectively placing the IoT solutions that help industries and sectors far and wide.

 5. Project management

As there is a rampant increase in the number of devices that are being installed it becomes necessary to have an understanding of the number of devices introduced into a particular ecosystem and sensors have to be installed in each device to recognize them. Telecom system integrators will be able to provide accurate information on how these devices are functioning efficiently.

 6. Asset Management

Telecom industries can come hand in hand with IoT solutions to provide an exclusive platform for connecting different physical devices or assets and also to manage operations, investigate malfunctions, run firmware upgrades, and keep track of inventory. 

 7. Big Data and AI

IoT-enabled devices are going to generate a high amount of data that can be used to the benefit of telecom operators and this data can help deduce information for a crucial understanding of the consumption pattern of customers. These insights can cater to be the foundation of decision-making in the telecom industry.

The success of the solutions implemented by IoT has a definite core dependency on how telecom integrators work with them. The seamless connectivity is the main element that ensures the productivity of solutions created using IoT. They can also work hand in hand and have made some definite strides towards this note to provide services to industries ranging from medicine, retail, agriculture, automobile, etc. With higher standards of connectivity reaped in, this collaboration is only bound to soar high in the coming years.
