Connecting the Unconnected in the IoT

UHF Tags could economically expand the IoT.

Sourced through Scoop.it from: machinedesign.com

The best IoT designs feature several wireless technologies for the best connectivity fit for a particular network. For example, device-to-device communications get the higher data and faster throughput communications, while point-to-point communication works well for things toward the edge of the network.   Interesting Points: 

  • As IoT continues its rapid growth, durable, high-memory tags will be critical for extending connectivity to large market segments not well served by more expensive, active “broadcast” connectivity methods. The tags’ small form factor, low power consumption, and low cost will make it possible to tag a much larger number of “things.” These “edge” things will likely to be the majority of “things” in the IoT. 
  • High-memory RF tags continue to advance and will become more efficient at sharing data to communicate the “who, what, when, where, and how” that feeds into the network, opening the door to new applications and making many assets “smart.”
