The IoT refers to the connection of devices (other than the usual devices such as computers, laptops and smartphones) to the Internet. Almost anything, including assets, cars, kitchen appliances, alarm systems and lighting etc. can all be connected through the IoT. And as the Internet of Things grows over the next few years, more and more devices will be added.





  • Internet of Things: A network of internet-connected objects able to collect and exchange data using embedded sensors.

  • Internet of Things device: Any stand-alone internet-connected device that can be monitored and/or controlled from a remote location.

  • Internet of Things ecosystem: All the components that enable businesses, governments, and consumers to connect to their IoT devices, including remotes, dashboards, networks, gateways, analytics, data storage, and security.

  • Entity: Includes businesses, governments, and consumers.

  • Physical layer: The hardware that makes an IoT device, including sensors and networking gear.

  • Network layer: Responsible for transmitting the data collected by the physical layer to different devices.

  • Application layer: This includes the protocols and interfaces that devices use to identify and communicate with each other.

  • Remotes: Enable entities that utilize IoT devices to connect with and control them using a dashboard, such as a mobile application. They include smartphones, tablets, PCs, smartwatches, connected TVs, and nontraditional remotes.

  • Dashboard: Displays information about the IoT ecosystem to users and enables them to control their IoT ecosystem. It is generally housed on a remote.

  • Analytics: Software systems that analyze the data generated by IoT devices. The analysis can be used for a variety of scenarios, such as predictive maintenance.

  • Data storage: Where data from IoT devices is stored.

  • Networks: The internet communication layer that enables the entity to communicate with their device, and sometimes enables devices to communicate with each other.

iCE & IoT

Although IoT is suitable for in car, personal and home space, iCE plays predominantly in mission critical communications, enterprise, industrial and security sectors.

Key monitoring events include:

  • Environmental - temperature/humidity/smoke/gas/leak/air-flow/pressure

  • Power - status (on-off)/voltage/current/kW/kWh/power factor

  • Security - door status (open/closed)/motion/intrusion/video/thermal

  • Assets - location/status/intrusion/theft/workflow/history

  • Geological tracking

These events are common but not limited to the following sectors:

  • IT Data Centers and related facilities

  • Remote network and communication rooms/towers

  • Smart buildings

  • Smart warehousing

  • Cold rooms and medical facilities

  • Renewable energy

  • Grey/Harvested water systems

  • Mining


Create your very own IoT environment within your campus, building, warehouse or mine, with iCE LoRa IoT gateways, modems, terminals and sensors.
