LAN Solutions - Connecting the Internet of Things

The rapid expansion of cloud services has empowered the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT); including machine-to-machine (M2M) connectivity across the Internet. This demand for Internet connectivity is driving explosive growth for LAN solutions based on Ethernet in several markets such as automotive, industrial automation and control, unified communications, and the smart home.

Automotive has embraced the adoption of Ethernet in applications to support infotainment, advanced driver assistance systems, diagnostics and backbone connectivity. Deterministic Ethernet solutions are ideal for next generation factory automation, process control, robotics, and data acquisition. The transition to Internet Protocol-based communications which continues in both enterprise and residential applications now extends to embedded applications such as emergency, security, intercom and paging in healthcare, and utility management. Demand for LAN connectivity of entertainment and control devices continues at an increasing rate within the smart digital home.
