Solar energy usage is on the rise nationwide as the technology becomes more efficient and cost effective. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), renewable energy sources accounted for almost two-thirds of net new power capacity around the world in 2016, with solar energy expanding faster than any other fuel source to surpass the net growth in coal for the first time in history.

Neo_Blog_WiFi.jpgWi-Fi is all around us these days because of its use in businesses, schools, offices, hospitals, and even smart cities from Paris to El Paso providing Wi-Fi internet access to citizens and tourists. Wi-Fi data, much like that sent via walkie-talkies or cell phones, is transmitted and received by radio waves. Wi-Fi is also one of the critical building blocks in broadening the scope of the Internet of Things (IoT) because Wi-Fi can connect smaller devices to a larger network. IoT requires a layered system of information, forming a data chain starting with IoT tracking devices, ending with databases where the data can be interpreted.

IoT testing and NeoThe Internet of Things can simplify our lives from the outside by making mechanics easier to control, eliminating redundancies, and streamlining processes. These changes have the capability to alter the way we do business across various sectors, including retail, automotive, and urban development.

Yet in spite of these improvements, new technologies carry their own independent complexities, particularly when it comes to testing the system itself. As Francis Adanza at DZone put it, IoT is “a complex realm of crisscrossing wireless connections and long device idle times. This requires very specific testing needs.” Such inherent complexity leads to major challenges for IoT testing.
