IoT’s Impact On Supply Chains And Security

September 27, 2019

This week, along with Amazon’s announcement about new Echo devices and Alexa’s celebrity voices, came news of Amazon Sidewalk, a new wireless protocol that uses low bandwidth to extend the distance at which IoT devices can be controlled and requires less power than Wi-Fi. This seemingly small move signals Amazon’s faith in the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), however. The latest IoT Tracker delves into new applications for IoT, as well as its limitations, with a focus on supply chains and security. Many developments are being driven by the impending arrival of fifth-generation (5G) networks, which will offer higher data processing, lower latencies and more reliable connectivity. This, in turn, will support Intelligence of Things (IoT) applications that require vast amounts of data to be processed rapidly.
