In today’s age of the internet, there are a plethora of IoT platforms available in the market, but most of these IoT platforms regardless of their functionality still can’t be categorized as a seamlessly integrated solution. If we look at the hardware device level, IoT devices come equipped with a multitude of sensors that come in different LGA form factor designs and have a set of basic requirements to connect to embedded electronics for communications, processing, and storage. Further, at the edge level, there are different gateways that all have their own proprietary mechanisms to enable either fog or cloud services. Finally, the result is that these IoT deployments are often error-prone, labor-intensive, and technically difficult, furthermore, they lack a standardized framework.
Apple, whose products are renowned all over the world, offers the best plug-and-play interface. An Apple user can easily switch from one Apple device to another within a few minutes. The user doesn’t have to go through detailed technical configuration requirements to switch over and start using their Apple device. There are only a few IoT solutions in the market that offers Apple like seamless and quick plug-and-play.
Only a few IoT devices allow a switch on and go capability to users, moreover, some of these IoT devices can’t even perform the functionalities they claim for. Deployment should be automatic without the requirement of a technician to manually configure devices and gateways.
