Solutions for IoT and Autonomous Vehicles

Leading Internet of  Things Applications

The Internet of Things (IoT) is everywhere and its uses are growing exponentially. It is estimated that by 2020 there will be over 20 billion IoT devices vying for network bandwidth in a world where the demands are skyrocketing for high-quality Internet performance.

IoT touches many areas of the market, including manufacturing, healthcare, transportation and utilities. IoT has promised more analytical data insights that will help to create greater efficiency and enhance customer satisfaction.









IoT is being used by local governments to build smart cities, businesses to develop smart products like appliances, electronics and wearable technology, and consumers who benefit from the convenience of not having to carry cash, keys or cards. The data collected includes everything from sensors that can transmit data like temperature, speed, video feed, pressure and location to items including cars, trucks and machines, that are all connected over the Internet. Once the data is collected, it is then analyzed and translated into information that is actionable for businesses and government.

With all the IoT devices fighting to connect to the Internet, it can be difficult to manage the demands of real-time services on networks.


What are the Challenges of the IoT?

IoT is different than traditional networks that have static capacity and variable demands. With IoT applications, both capacity and demand are variable, which poses challenges for networks. It makes it difficult to detect and allocate resources, manage capacity and deliver performance.

Where Does Martello Fit?

Service-Aware networks are the solution to this particular challenge. Performance analytics and testing are used to identify faults, while SD-WAN is used to optimize utilization and performance of system and network resources in near real-time. SD-WAN play a foundational role as businesses continue to embrace IoT. Choosing the right SD-WAN platform is critical to ensuring businesses are able to fully optimize their operations.

The Challenge of Autonomous Vehicles

As autonomous vehicles start to hit the road, the challenge of connectivity increases. Maintaining network connectivity between two variable points – a moving car and a cell tower – is critical because even a two-second delay in decision-making for an autonomous vehicle can be catastrophic.  Taking measures including multi-link redundancy, and leveraging multiple network providers to remain connected at all times, even in areas with limited network coverage can make the difference between life or death. This is critical for IoT applications that include emergency response, transportation, matters of public safety and military.
