FAQ
Can I combine different connectivity technologies in one IoT solution?

Yes, you can. By combining several IoT connectivity technologies, you allow your devices to adapt to various circumstances. Owing to that, you enhance your system’s reliability and ensure its flexibility.

Are there any security considerations specific to IoT connectivity technologies?

Yes, you may face certain security considerations in the IoT. These typically include authentication, encryption, and protection measures against data leaks and unauthorized access. Plus, don’t forget to consider the built-in security features that go with your chosen connectivity technology.

What factors should I consider when choosing between wired and wireless IoT connectivity technologies?

Consider your deployment location, power requirements, and data transfer speed. Wired connections like Ethernet offer reliability and high bandwidth, while wireless options like LoRaWAN excel in long-range communication and low power consumption.

How can I ensure seamless handover between different IoT connectivity technologies in a hybrid network setup?

Ensuring smooth transitions between connectivity techs in a hybrid network requires proper network design and protocol compatibility. WebbyLab experts usually leverage gateway devices or create custom bridges to minimize disruptions in the data flow.

Can I upgrade or switch to a different connectivity technology after my project’s deployment?

Upgrading or changing the IoT connectivity technology post-deployment can be challenging. It’s because it involves replacing hardware and adjusting your existing infrastructure. Yet, it’s possible to switch with careful planning in place.
