Read how distributed mobile cores can help you meet the performance demands of an IoT solution, and improve the latency of data transmission.
What are mobile cores for the internet of things? To understand, let’s take a look at today’s communications. Wireless communications are everywhere in 21st-century life. Every time you make a phone call, send a text or access a cloud-based service, a complex dance among interwoven technologies unfolds, unseen, in just a few milliseconds. Consumers don’t worry about those events; they care only that they happen quickly and reliably.
A key component of any wireless network is known as the core, or mobile core. Developing cellular IoT solutions is a complex dance that takes place inside a mobile core—effectively the “brain” of a mobile network.
It’s a different story for builders of cellular IoT solutions. Every step of that dance matters. Missed steps and poor timing adversely impacts the speed at which data transfers through the network. Seemingly minor issues in the interconnected systems can combine to threaten the viability of the entire IoT solution. Your wireless end users want a seamless customer experience. As builders of cellular IoT solutions, we know that a seemingly minor issue throughout the wireless network can threaten the viability of the entire IoT solution, disrupting that experience.
Which is why it’s critical for you to get to know a key component that can make or break your project: The mobile core.
In this whitepaper “Mobile Cores for the Internet of Things,” by Twilio, you’ll learn more about:
- The ways mobile cores can impact your IoT solution,
- Key components of the “brain” of your mobile network and,
- Differences between distributed IoT vs centralized mobile cores.
