End-to-End IoT Product Design FAQs

As a leading end-to-end IoT product development company, we often hear the following questions.

What is end-to-end IoT?

End-to-end internet of things (IoT) solutions consist of multiple technology layers including the “thing” or connected device, connectivity or wireless communications, cloud applications, and user interfaces such as mobile apps and web portals.

How large is the IoT market?

IoT systems have experienced explosive growth in recent years. Market and consumer data expert Statista predicts the number of IoT devices worldwide will almost triple from 8.74 billion in 2020 to more than 25.4 billion in 2030.

How to ensure IoT device security?

We often hear of IoT devices with major security vulnerabilities. With the pace of change in technology, security vulnerabilities are inevitable, so firmware needs to be updated. Some important ways to ensure that your device is secure include:

  • Design to support over-the-air (OTA) updates
  • Leverage cloud tools for fleet management and software updates
  • Establish a secure root-of-trust, a source that can always be trusted within a cryptographic system
