On this IoT For All podcast episode, the senior team from CoreKinect (Assar Badri, CEO and Co-Founder; John Horn, President and Chief Strategy Officer; and Mitchel Kelley, Principal Engineer) discuss building custom hardware and how LPWAN will impact IoT.
The CoreKinect team explains the process of building custom IoT hardware and discusses how they manage the production of IoT products from engineering design through assembly and manufacturing. The team also shares roadblocks of the custom development process and explains when it makes sense for companies to build custom as opposed to buying off the shelf.
We discuss the hot topic of LPWAN and the impact it will have on IoT. The episode concludes with advice for companies when analyzing what hardware and software partners are best suited for their solutions.
