DEFINITION
ANT is a proprietary (but open access) multicast wireless sensor network technology designed and marketed by ANT Wireless.
It defines a wireless communications protocol stack that enables hardware operating in the 2.4 GHz ISM band to communicate by establishing standard rules for co-existence, data representation, signalling, authentication, and error detection. It is conceptually similar to Bluetooth low energy, but is oriented towards usage with sensors.
IOT SNAPSHOT
The IoT ONE Radar indicates the mix of hardware, software and services used in an IoT solution.
Hardware
Processors provide the intelligence behind IoT systems and are often integrated into system-on-a-chip designs.
Hardware that enables dual directional communication for data collection and control message delivery. Examples include cellular, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi.
Sensors transform energy into electrical data; they are the eyes and ears of IoT. Actuators transform electrical data into energy; they are the muscle of IoT.
Technologies that enable legacy devices and other systems to connect to the IoT. They integrate technologies and protocols for networking.
Hardware products that are used by end users that contain IoT technology.
Wearables are smart electronic devices that can be incorporated into clothing or worn on the body as implants/accessories
Software
Software that ingests data and visualises it to generate insights to answer specific questions
Software that can take over complex human operations and operate independently of human intervention.
Platforms that facilitate and allow application developments for specific use cases and/or client requirements.
Software that focus on securing devices, machines, and communications between them.
Providing the infrastructure to store and manage data.
Services
Bringing together software, hardware, middleware, and infrastructure components to build an end-to-end solution based on specific client requirements.
Developing custom hardware for specific uses and operating environments/needs.
Developing custom software for specific uses and operating environments/needs.
Providing network connectivity to allow communication between devices, things, and operators.
