The market is open to adopt new technologies to cope up with the advancing challenges as well as making itself competitive with rest of the world. The technologies for upgrading to smart and adapting to connected devices are in the growing stage where there are ample challenges specifically in the field of product safety and performance, but there are opportunities for improvements as well. The world is going smart and India is also nowhere behind in the race. If we look through the perspective of lighting industry, India is going hand in hand with the global leaders. Numerous developments are taking place in the field of smart lightning, smart pole, smart meter where IoT is being implemented like never before.
The IoT market is growing at a substantial rate globally. It is estimated that around 50 billion wireless devices will be connected worldwide by 2020. The wireless industry is evolving rapidly and new technologies are being introduced in the market at a faster rate. To cope up with the market demand and survive the competition, manufacturers have to continuously upgrade themselves as well as comprehensively test their products and get certified by leading certification bodies in the market, which helps them in getting an extra edge in the local market and also can showcase their products and technology to other markets globally. Product testing is done under various dimensions and parameters, some of the essential part of the testing are global & country specific regulations mainly encompassing safety & energy efficiency, coupled with performance & interoperability with the new age requirements of data protection and prevention needs. Once the manufacturer accomplishes the parameters of product testing and development, these products can be successfully showcased in local and global markets. Some known examples of IoT technologies are Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee along with other new cutting edge technologies that include Thread, LoRa and Sigfox.
