How to choose the right IoT connectivity for your project?

Too Many IoT Connectivity Protocols to Choose From? Our IoT Protocol Comparison Table Will Help You!

Have you ever felt that working as a IoT product developer is like going to a supermarket with a wonderful selection but no idea what to choose? We wanted to make it easier for the developers to see the differences between various IoT protocols and created a comprehensive IoT connectivity protocol comparison table!

The newly launched IoT protocol comparison table allows you to compare the top ten most popular IoT connectivity protocols side-by-side. It includes the following protocols: LTE Cat 1, LTE Cat M1, EC-GSM-IoT, NB-IoT, Zigbee, SigFox, LoRa, Google Thread, Bluetooth Low Energy and Wirepas.

The IoT connectivity protocols can be compared based on 16 different attributes such as: channel bandwidth, latency range, transmission speed, positioning, duty cycle, data encryption and more.

The IoT connectivity protocol comparison table is hosted on our new Connectivity Garage website, which will be a one-stop-shop of technology information relevant for designers, developers and makers of IoT devices, applications and solutions.

The IoT solutions are developed on a multi-layered technology stack, which is centered around wireless connectivity. For connectivity, developers must choose between a wide choice of different protocols, each of which provides a different combination of capabilities and qualities for them to match with their product design goals. The IoT connectivity protocol comparison table makes it easy for the developers to see the differences.

Based on our experience from developing several blockbuster IoT products like the Lindström intelligent washroom, the Snowfox trackerphone or the Oura smart-ring, we realize that choosing the right connectivity protocol is a complex, yet crucial decision for the IoT product developers. The wrong decision can result in poor user experience , or in an unexpectedly high product life-time costs. The IoT protocol comparison table is here to help developers to make better products.

The Connectivity Garage website will be developed alongside the rapidly evolving IoT technologies. Watch this space! Visit Haltian’s IoT Connectivity Garage to find out more.
