When connecting an IoT device to the cloud there are five options available today: Cellular, satellite, Wi-Fi, Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) (e.g. NB-IoT), and direct connection to the Internet via Ethernet. Which one you go for highly depends on the device in question, its capabilities and the target span of the addressable cloud ecosystem (e.g. AWS, Azure, GCP, Alibaba Cloud, etc).
Pelion experts run you through the key success criteria when selecting the ideal cloud service provider for security, performance and SLA including high availability, device provisioning time, initial setup cost and usage-based cost.
