IoT refers to the management and coordination of connected devices and systems, with the goal of automating and optimizing the exchange of data and commands between devices. IoT orchestration involves coordinating and managing the interactions between IoT devices, applications, and cloud-based services to ensure seamless communication and efficient operation of the IoT system. This includes tasks such as device discovery, configuration, communication, and management, as well as the handling of data and events generated by the connected devices.
What is IoT?
The Need for IoT Device Orchestration
The evolution of IoT devices and applications has led to the need for IoT orchestration, which involves coordinating and managing the interactions between IoT devices, applications, and cloud-based services to ensure seamless communication and efficient operation of the IoT system. With the increasing complexity of IoT solutions, automated orchestration has become crucial to meet continuity, customer experience, and optimization goals shared across large-scale IoT use cases.
The orchestration of IoT devices and applications is necessary for the efficient movement, processing, analysis, and action of constant streams of data at the heart of any smart grid or smart utility solution. Smart utilities and other sophisticated new operations that integrate connectivity, IoT devices, and live data analysis into their production or business operations require automated provisioning, activation, and orchestration to function as intended and be improved continuously.
Moreover, IoT providers and enterprises are delivering a more complex set of services and applications continuously, which makes automated orchestration even more critical. As such, IoT orchestration includes tasks such as device discovery, configuration, communication, and management, as well as the handling of data and events generated by the connected devices. In essence, IoT orchestration links IoT devices, applications, and cloud-based services to ensure the seamless and efficient operation of the IoT system.
IoT Market Sizing: The Need for Automated Provisioning, Activation, and Orchestration
The Internet of Things market is maturing as a broader range of players adopt IoT-based solutions. These players are advancing everything from smart building automation and environment, social, and governance (ESG) applications to solutions for automating factories, mines, and oil refineries to field service automation for fixing those IoT networks when things don’t go right.
As the IoT market expands, the need to automate provisioning, activation and orchestration is becoming more critical. Providers need to reduce the cost of implementation, accelerate the time to market for services, and make it easier to deliver complete IoT solutions from physical devices to customer applications. And they need zero downtime, which also makes automated service recovery necessary.
