  • Assessing existing IoT solutions
  • Gathering and definined requirements and constraints for a wireless IoT solution
    • Business and technical requirements
    • Documentation of requirements analysis results
  • Designing a wireless IoT solution to meet requirements
    • Selecting appropriate topologies
    • Designing appropriate channel and RF plans
    • Using wireless IoT design tools
    • Producing design and configuration documentation
  • Validating and optimizing the wireless IoT solution
