In the past few years, the number of IoT and cellular devices used by various industries has grown exponentially, with the growth of industrial routers accounting for 46.7% of cellular devices. Cellular network coverage provides a cost-effective solution to address public network security and privacy issues by isolating private networks for direct data transmission from wireless machine-to-machine (M2M) devices to internal enterprise systems.
For example, in the agricultural farming application environment, whether it is the location of the truck fleet, the route of controlling the farm combine harvester, or the network being connected to the smart water meter in the city; the realization of each IoT solution has networking requirements, and the project result can be reached through data transmission.
Industrial-used devices can now use the transfer, management, and control of large amounts of data for remote and local connections to separate data from public Internet traffic and provide uninterrupted connectivity to internal IP networks. And support the successful implementation of M2M solutions in all industry sectors. It can be realized by the VPN function of the industrial router, and the biggest feature of the VPN proprietary network transmission function is security.
Security is one of the biggest obstacles to the adoption and growth of M2M. As the proliferation of connected devices brings new challenges, data must be securely managed. And security management continues to be effectively controlled, industrial routers continue to dominate the global market in terms of cellular connectivity.
