IoT Standards: The End Game
Only time will tell which standards will be the most successful.
Apr 28, 2019—
Quite regularly I get the question: with all these standards around, what should I choose? Zigbee, Thread, Bluetooth Mesh, or Wi-Fi? Or maybe LoRa? Or is it better to wait for 5G and NB-IoT?
And keep in mind: whatever wireless standard is leading the pack today, in five to 10 years, things will have changed anyway, so upgrading your network will be important. But waiting for "the final and ultimate" wireless networking technology will take a long time.
The Relation of Technology and Psychology
First, technology. Three factors largely determine the performance of a radio: range (how far away you are from a base station—cell tower, router, hotspot, etc.); data rate (from a simple voice call to watching video); and battery life (the longer the better).
