The Role of IoT in Remote Monitoring: Connectivity the Key

The Internet of Things (IoT), and particularly industrial IoT (IIoT) has ushered in a new era of technological advancement, transforming the way we monitor and manage remote locations. Monitoring operations and conditions in industries from energy to agriculture, among many more, is easier now than ever before.  


Only with resilient connectivity is IoT deployment possible. If the data being collected by new technologies can’t be moved to those who can use it quickly and continuously, its value is lost.


Benefits of Connectivity-enabled IoT in Remote Monitoring 


  • Real-time Data Insights: IoT devices facilitate the collection and transmission of real-time data from remote locations. This allows businesses and organizations to monitor operations, assets, and environmental conditions without the need for physical site visits. The availability of instant data insights enables quick decision-making, proactive maintenance, and enhanced operational efficiency. 
  • Cost Reduction: By leveraging IoT in remote monitoring, businesses can reduce costs associated with manual inspections, maintenance, and on-site visits. IoT-enabled sensors and devices provide automated monitoring, saving time and resources but also reducing the risk of errors or delays in identifying potential issues. 
  • Increased Safety and Security: Remote monitoring via IoT offers improved safety and security measures. IoT sensors can detect anomalies, such as unusual temperature or pressure levels, and trigger alerts to prevent accidents or equipment failures, improving health and safety as well as improving the lifespans of assets.  

The Connectivity Challenge 

Reliable and resilient connectivity is crucial for successful remote monitoring using IoT – but around 90% of the earth’s surface has no access to terrestrial connectivity. Building terrestrial infrastructure is expensive and time-consuming, so alternatives must be found.  



Krucial: Your Connectivity Solution 

To fully leverage the power of IoT in remote monitoring of assets, conditions and processes, having a resilient connectivity solution is critical. Krucial provides just that. Krucial CONNECT keeps mission-critical data flowing, even across remote, hard-to-reach and off-grid sites. Using a combination of cellular and multiple satellite backhauls for ultimate reliability, information collected by digital technologies is moved to the cloud continuously, and regardless of weather conditions.


Data blindspots should be a challenge of the past – with Krucial, the technology is now readily available to illuminate the world and deploy IoT anywhere on earth.
