Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the ubiquitous network of physical objects / devices or "things" embedded with electronics and connectivity in order to achieve greater value and services by exchanging data with the respective manufacturers, operators or other connected devices.
 
Each object / device (thing) is uniquely identifiable via its IP address (IPv6) and able to communicate within the existing internet infrastructure.
 
IoT involves ubiquitous smart objects that communicate directly over the internet creating data without human intervention.
 
With its potential to network devices with limited CPU, memory and power resources, IoT finds applications in nearly every conceivable field.

Fields of Application

Various studies predict large growth rates for the Internet of Things in the coming years. Innovative wireless technologies, which are also energy-saving, make a significant contribution to this development .
 
AMBER provides device manufacturers with wireless technologies based on several RF standards and frequency bands, which are suitable for IoT networking. The application areas are versatile :
 
Wearables, Conected Home, environmental monitoring, infrastructure management, manufacturing, Smart Metering, medical / healthcare systems, building automation, transportation and large scale deployments and many more...

Example of Use

Smart Home / Connected Home

In the field of home automation, simplifying the control and operation of technical appliances.  This includes the networking of home technology and household appliances (lights , blinds, heating , stove, refrigerator, washing machine and others) .

Wireless technology provides an excellent alternative when wired communication is difficult, impossible or simply too expensive.
 
A wireless device network eliminates the need for cables and the risk of damage to the cable.
 
Due to wireless standards such as Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, the home network can be easiliy hooked up with a smart phone or tablet (iPad).
