The Internet can be regarded as a person's information, the Internet of things is the informatization of the world.
Internet of things is the basic function of a necessary access to the Internet, way outside WIFI and mobile GPRS data access two kinds.Once upon a time, the original rule out their own half of the world.But with the advent of the Internet of things intelligent household tuyere, especially as the price of dip, the market had the intersection!Such as mobile POS before, originally made with GPRS data access to the Internet, with the popularity of WIFI and hardware cost advantage, that was his WIFI grab the part of the market, the previous satellite receiver using GPRS module, some manufacturers began to use the WIFI module to replace.2 g basic being idle and GPRS, and as the GPRS module to reduce the cost of equipment, Moore's law, the threshold of the GPRS is expensive, is also a thing of the past.GPRS Internet access to the congenital advantage has been fully demonstrated.
Here are some professional advices to analyze market Demand for customer
Rate: WIFI is famous for its high data rate.It is second to Tony GPRS compared with WiFi.But the smart home and Internet data transmission volume is small, usually 1 k Byte/S basic will be enough.So in the Internet of things applications, speed is not bottleneck restriction.
Price: as the Internet WIFI module 24 months of continuous fighting, a quarter of the price is reduced to 2 years ago, basic!They will be done within 10 yuan.For Internet GPRS module, essence can adopt the same strategy: WIFI to activate the market first.Essence can launch the full spectrum of GPRS module again upset the market, focus on the Internet of things and smart home market, in 15 RMB retail price, batch test.The price is in line with the WIFI module on market!
Security: for router back door gust, zero day vulnerabilities, GPRS data flow security is quite high, the possibility of attack and be black small relative to the WIFI.
Traffic expenses: WIFI completely free, GPRS can collect fees by year, the lowest 8 yuan package years.As China mobile and China unicom in and competition of Internet of things, the lowest rates will reduce to 5 yuan package.Because the Internet of things market surge in demand, the market has a huge gap.Mobile network operators, in strategic layout, undertake their first, obviously, won't make such a big group of loss, because the user group of even more widely than mobile phone users!Early to grab customers and the market is quite important.
Customer experience: the change of home network is bigger, will modify the account password or several times within a year, and the situation of the equipment complex, even not with WIFI, such as frequency drops a bad experience.Iot colleagues, such as you do at the fair show your WIFI products, tend to be embarrassed, signal spectrum was taken seriously, perfect presentation of your product, can fully rely on luck.And GPRS easily cope, there is no such problem!The change in the network environment, you need to re-enter WIFI account and password, is cumbersome.And GPRS module is a card for life, plug-in automatically connected to the Internet!
Iot device must be connected to the Internet, and the choice of access networks have both WIFI and GPRS is more affordable, WIFI access equipment equipment price is 3 to 5 dollars, lower than the GPRS this is hardware cost.But, if the GPRS performance better than WIFI, stable and reliable, to take the lead in experience a "geek" smart home users, is the cost for the 3-5 yuan is not sensitive.Early is no real-name SIM CARDS, however, now according to the national ministry of industry and the phone user identity information registration regulations since September 1, 2013, the new phone users are required to be available to register as a true identity communication services.This factory can be unified, omitted the customer more than one step of operation.Free WIFI flow forever, this seems to be advantage is larger, and GPRS need traffic fee every year, at least 5 yuan, but relative to the phone bill, we hold every year thousands of 5 yuan is negligible.And the packages that can be deducted in your master card binding, not forget cost problems.
Therefore GPRS and WIFI who is able to capture more customers of the key factors is:
1)Customer will pay for 5 yuan each year to use cost;
2)SIM card, is a matter of cost, if the cost is too high, will affect the mobile data occupy the pace of the Internet of things!
