When we think of the applicable functionality that a hybrid connectivity solution would provide, multiple use cases come to mind. Everything from connected solar panels to smart cities to point of sale monitoring to security benefit from a lower cost, more reliable hybrid connectivity solution. For example, within the trucking industry (or for any roadway vehicle), cellular connections would work best while the vehicle is in motion, needing GSP or emergency services. While in the depot, however, Wi-Fi would be a fiscally sound (lower cost) pathway for transmitting static data, such as driver logs.

Refrigerator trucks and temperature-controlled storage facilities are common sites around world, and most people assume that cold chains — moving products that require cold storage between manufacturers, suppliers, distribution centers, retailers (restaurants, grocery stores), and, ultimately, the customer — ensure everything works as planned.
