The Difference between Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

The Difference between Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
We see and hear the words Wi-Fi or Bluetooth every day, but do we really know what the difference is? Most of the more technologically literate people know the ins and outs of both, but the average consumer does not know too many details regarding the differences. We have explained about Bluetooth in earlier blog post here “How-Bluetooth-smart-is-changing-the-world”. However, there is always room for more discussion on Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. They are, in a .

How IoT is Making the Cloud Necessary

How IoT is Making the Cloud Necessary
As a result of the recent IoT craze, a lot of products that were developed for completely different reasons have changed to become more IoT smart friendly. Most of manufacturing companies have added IoT to their product line that has became a part of an IoT enable ecosystem. They formed provisioning IoT devices, and most of us in the technology community became IoT experts. IoT and Cloud are revolutionizing the technology world by helping .

BLE devices can interact directly with a website Today’s connectivity world is rapidly changing to keep you up and connect with smart devices. Bluetooth technology has integrated advanced low energy and smart connectivity protocols into smart devices. So no matter what devices you want to connect to, you are never far from the devices that are important to you. Many of us have already connected to many devices through internet and Bluetooth. Bluetooth’s newest .

How Digital Oil Fields are Changing an Industry

How Digital Oil Fields are Changing an Industry
As of late, everywhere you look a new device has become IoT (Internet of Things) enabled. Now this has been around for a couple years, but IoT and oilfields are also connected.  Oil companies and oilfields always get bad publicity due to oil spills. However, most of us would not be able to effectively live our lives without their contributions. Now with connected oilfields, oilfields are now more productive. British Petroleum  set the pace .

RFID Tags for the Internet of Things

RFID Tags for the Internet of Things
Devices are getting smarter and are able to connect themselves to each other. The Internet enables devices to talk and understand. This is a significant step towards implementing IoT. Communication using the Internet is a challenge for RFID (Radio frequency identification) tags. RFID tags have been used to control doors, lights, and computers around your home or office for many years. These tags provide secure locking system solutions. Each RFID tag is a mini .

What Exactly are Gateways/Hubs?

What Exactly are Gateways/Hubs?
Gateways give user the ability to create and deploy cost-effective and secure IoT solutions for almost any industry. With gateways, third-party applications can be run and improve workplace productivity and efficiency. With connected devices, companies will save time and money. With all the hype around more devices gaining access to the Internet of Things, gateways and hubs are becoming more popular as a result. Gateways are the way many Internet of Things (IoT) enabled .

How IoT Monitoring technology improves manufacturing operations

How IoT Monitoring technology improves manufacturing operations
Remote monitoring and maintaining different systems is playing a key role of the manufacturing industry. This is because remote monitoring reduces overall machine cost, quality of output, and on time delivery  of products. The operating conditions and performance of production lines are linked to the effectiveness of machine maintenance.   Monitoring solutions can detect and anticipate the fault of a device in time. Then, these defects are managed while production continues instead of stopping .
