Internet of Things
Why partner with universities?
The Internet of Things is expected to grow from 10 billion devices in 2016 to more than 50 billion by 2020. Of these, a high percentage will be wireless, and of wireless connected devices about 80% will operate on low power wide-area networks (LPWAN) like Sigfox. With such immense growth on the horizon, it’s critical to ensure today’s university students are learning about IoT and the technologies emerging around it.
Through the ErudIoT program, VT and our partners provide universities with developer modules, free connectivity and 24/7 support. They also have access to guest lecturers who are experts in cloud computing, LPWAN connectivity, and the hardware and software aspects of IoT.
