Why Connectivity is the most important choice of the IoT projects?

 Buildings are only getting smart when sensors and actuators are connected. Still less than 5 % of the devices and assets are connected IIoT and one of the main reason is the complexity of the systems which driving total cost of ownership. During the session we will discuss how connectivity will impact IoT project cost, which is cumulative sum of hardware, planning, installation and maintenance. We have cover first hand input of the challenges on the field and  success stories.
