Scratching your head as to which IoT (Internet of Things) or network development kit to use for your next project -- and not just for prototyping and MVP, but something that is solid all the way through scale-up and commercialization? This article’s goal is to show you where NetBurner’s products fit within a figurative “IoT Spectrum” in contrast with the market’s top two selling IOT development kits - Arduino and Raspberry Pi - in terms of hardware, software, tools, and support. We will also provide some insight in selecting a platform that is right for your project or application while keeping future goals and scalability in mind.
NetBurner’s founders started twenty years ago as unassuming pioneers in the much later named Internet of Things (IoT). Our mission then and now was to make network-enabling hardware and devices a snap for industrial engineers and product designers.
In hindsight, one could call this earlier era in networking-enabling or IP-enabling widgets “IoT 1.0”. Now that IoT 2.0 is in full swing it’s exciting to look forward on where else this fantastic journey will go from a macroeconomic perspective. In this post, we’re featuring two articles that summarize the market drivers and economic forecasts as we move ever closer to a nearly inevitable IoT 3.0. We think it is an important read for our forward-thinking community.
