Scaling an Internet of Things (IoT) solution to thousands or millions of devices is complex and challenging. A myriad of elements adds to the complexity, and one that centers on something as unassuming as device provisioning and naming conventions can become a significant obstacle in IoT deployments. In this blog, we will focus on IoT deployments using a LoRaWAN® network, review best practices, and uncover some vital information you need for scalable success.
In the hospitality industry, local area wireless networking technologies like Wi-Fi and low power wide area networks like LoRaWAN® work to deliver various IoT enabled business outcomes. The question becomes, do they compete against one another, or do they work together harmoniously?
When it comes to IoT, deployment services are fundamental for several reasons – and can make or break the rollout and sustainability of the solution.
IoT deployments require a level of expertise, including an intimate understanding of both the technology and the unique use case for a successful and timely rollout.
As IoT applications multiply in the life sciences industry, so do the devices available in the market. But not all deliver the same level of quality or functionality - some are purpose-built, while others have multiple sensors capable of addressing multiple use cases over time.
Durable, resilient, and adaptable for a variety of use cases regardless of business size, shape, or industry, the MQflex is a LoRaWAN®-certified multi-sensor device that scales for enterprise-grade deployments.
For convenience store operators, custom IoT-backed solutions like temperature monitoring of refrigerators and freezers have the power to deliver quantifiable ROI, while combatting challenges facing the industry.
One size never fits all, which is why choosing the right LoRaWAN network provider is fundamental for every IoT project. Technical expertise, experience, deployment support, reliability, affordability, and scalability are key criteria to consider when choosing a network provider.
In recent years, demand for Internet of Things (IoT) solutions has gone mainstream. This is especially true among enterprises who see IoT, and data from devices, as an opportunity to generate new insights that can help reduce costs and drive innovative business models.

Enterprises and solution providers should expect certain core functionality from IoT devices and platforms. Over-the-air configuration, application, and firmware updates (in order of increasing complexity and bandwidth cost) should be high on that list.
The more data points you are measuring and processing, the more complex your system becomes. The key to simplification is integration, and the far more effective approach to IoT deployment is to build your network as a scalable, flexible platform.
What does 2019 have in store for Enterprise IoT? From sustainability and security to adoption trends and global deployments, MachineQ’s, Suresh Madhavan, weighs in on what we can expect this year.
To avoid that uh-oh moment when a fixable bug hits your customers, it’s critical that a device is intentionally designed with the ability to be updated over the air (OTA). Find out how MachineQ delivers OTA updates without disrupting communication across your devices.
