“COMSOL IoT Connect allows unconnected devices to join the network utilising inexpensive hardware, with all of the benefits of long-range, low-power IoT connectivity. Our ready-to-go infrastructure enables battery-powered end-points to carry on working for years, not days or weeks”, said Sean Laval, Technical Head of IoT at COMSOL Networks (PTY).

Hickley further added, “The Fourth Industrial Revolution builds on the Digital Revolution, representing new ways in which technology becomes embedded within societies and even the human body. It is marked by emerging technology breakthroughs in a number of fields, including robotics, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, biotechnology, The Internet of Things, 3D printing and autonomous vehicles.”

“The industrial sectors will see tremendous benefit from the IoT.  Government and municipalities also have incredible opportunity to reduce costs by improving efficiencies. And of course, technology vendors with IoT-specific solutions that are responsive to these new markets will have a huge opportunity”, he concluded.
