A New IoT World - Part 2

By Gregory Gundelfinger on May 6, 2020 9:29:01 AM

In our previous blog post, A New IoT World - Part 1, we discussed the shifting priorities of businesses, consumers, and connectivity services as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. This sequel will look at emerging infrastructure and efforts to support society as the entire world works to stay productive, efficient, and innovative during a time when contact must remain limited. Streaming services are purposely lowering their bandwidth and quality, factories are abandoning their work to mass produce masks, the entertainment industry is shifting to become entirely digital, and surveillance tools are growing each day.
