IoT involves the deployment of sensors, software and other technologies in anything, interconnecting a physical object with other devices or systems via the internet.
The process it uses is known as M2M (machine to machine), where two devices communicate through sensors and embedded chips. IoT technology connects everyday objects to the Internet through integrated devices, interconnecting people, processes and things.
Physical things provide Big Data, which requires advanced technology for analysis, allowing the physical world to coexist with the digital world.
What technologies have made the IoT possible?
1. Universal access to low-cost, low-power sensors.
2. Connectivity, with a variety of network protocols for efficient data transfer.
3. Cloud platforms.
4. Machine learning and analytics.
5. Artificial intelligence.
What advantages does IoT offer companies?
1ª. Improves business management.
2ª. Increases productivity and efficiency of business operations.
3ª. Creates new business models and revenue streams.
4ª. Connects the physical world with the digital world to generate added value.
The scope of application of IoT is quite broad, from manufacturing processes, allowing the continuity of production, to health, with sensors and devices that measure vital signs.
From all of the above it is easy to deduce that any business that does remote management of printers is, in fact, an IoT business where data collecting sensors coexist, cloud platforms that process and learn them to give orders to replenish one or another consumable, improving efficiency, reducing environmental impact, increasing productivity and ensuring the best experience in the use of printers.
Nubeprint developed the first engine with artificial intelligence (A.I.) for MPS in 2013, improved a year later for management optimization and implemented to this day (Nubeprint invests 30% of its resources in R+D+i). With its MPS-specific Machine Learning, machine learning algorithms use historical data as input to predict new values, allowing to make a complete and automatic management of printers’ needs
