IoT platforms facilitate scalable deployment of IoT sensors as they provide a platform for securely managing and analyzing their IoT devices and data. Important features of an IoT platform include data management, analytics, application development, interoperability, device management and security.
What is an IoT platform?
IoT platforms are middleware that integrates applications and hardware while providing an environment for data analytics. These platforms transfer information between two IoT layers: hardware and applications. They transmit data from a variety of hardware to the cloud to make it useful for applications while transferring commands from applications to hardware.
